    Disfigured M/C in 1960 Knoxville Tn.:

    "'One of the guys at work had introduced him to a friendly working girl down on Magnolia Avenue, close to the bus terminal and he would go see her once a month. She charged him ten dollars for two hours in her room and didn't care about his face. He thought that was nice of her. Sometimes he would give her an extra dollar. She would even kiss him on the cheek now when he left and call him Sugar. He was a regular after all. She didn't mind how his face looked. She did care that he had ten dollars."

    This one, because it's when I first 'got' my MC:

    "Yes, I have scars. You can gape at them later. Right now, your friend needs my help."

    Just rewrote and i quite like it.
    Me, too.
    From CHERRY:
    “You repeat unhealthy behaviors. You did it with me and you did it with Cheryl.”
    “How do you know what I did with Cheryl?”
    “Seriously?” she said. “You think we never picked up the phone?”
    “Come on.”
    “You think we never talked about you?”
    “Wait a minute,” I said. “Really?”
    “No, not really. Jesus.”
    I’d forgotten how mean Beth could be when she was pissed.

    Vampire gets introspective:

    “I remember,” she said softly, “how strange it was to realize that I was a soulless corpse, a creature of corruption. It all happened so quickly. And then ... there I was, still me but on the wrong side of creation.” She looked away. “We change as we need to to survive,” she said. “But I still remember that what I am was once shocking to me.”

    WIP about young royals:
    "She'd be an exciting Queen. A real thrill ride. She could bring back the beheadings."

    Is it kosher to drop in a line that I didn't write? I'm in love with Matthew Colville's line:
    "It's not that. It's a train wreck, and I stared at the inkblots long enough until I saw a butterfly."
    Starting small and building up to bigger things is a theme of books, and this signature.
    Favorite book list so far: Dune, Kushiel's Dart, Name of the Wind, Dresden Files, Seraphina, and more to come.
