Tired. Close to end of year. But here is a snippety bit of the third novel I am being slavish over right now- this is a work in progress piece, but it sums the character up and she is getting ready for a Christmas jaunt. This is the 'before' of the writing: might post the 'after' next year!
Lilith wakes up in a cold bath. She has no time to wash her hair now so she degreases her self-cut bleach mop with some glittery talc, which spills all over her body. She peels on her short red dress, discovers all her tights are in the wash, she finds some red satin trousers. There isn’t much time for make-up either so she draws on some red lipstick and splodges on more glitter.
‘Punk chic,’ she tells the mirror, as though it is questioning her outfit.
