One of the trickier things – at least, for me – is writing about women’s fashions.
The short answer: research. Today’s browser search history would be fascinating to post here, if I hadn’t purged it violently moments ago.
I think I’ve got it down, but it’s one of those things that has no good answer. If I get it wrong, the scene lacks authenticity. If I get it right, I’ll be asked to consult on America’s Next Top Model.
Actually, this might have an upside.
Juggling all of this – pacing, setting, character development – is hard. I hadn’t really considered some of it when setting out to write this book; I thought it’d be a nice little romp. You know, hero saves the world through action scenes and snappy dialogue. Turns out, even that kind of work needs some character development.
Even if I need to turn to women’s fashion. Oh, before I forget… Word goal: 2,500. Word achievement: 3,400.
