Day 2 – What’s the title of your story? Why did you choose the name you did?

My novel is entitled Odalys. My male protagonist/antagonist, Erik, is a paranoid schizophrenic, and Odalys is the name of his chief hallucination that feeds him advice and commands based on his own subconscious.

She’s technically the one to ruin everything in Erik’s life from around 18-years-old onward. It’s also a bit of a false title, since she doesn’t show up in full glory until around 40,000 or 50,000 words into the novel itself.
