I just got to a point while editing TWIST AND TURN, book two in The Twisted Trilogy, where a couple of reviews creeped into my head and tried to make me unbitchify Abby. I could have cut the entire paragraph out…now, instead of editing this out, I’m leaving it in just to piss ’em off. 😉
To change Abby’s overdramatic sarcasm and bitchy persona is to change Abby. Can’t do it. Besides, I love her like that. Do you think the world is full of all sweet, perfect, non-selfish people? Puh-lease. She’s real (in my own twisted little world).
Excerpt Follows: (FYI: “I” is Abby.)
“I pulled into Aubrey’s lot and zoomed into the last visitor parking space, cutting off another car. The driver was waving erratically at me and hollering in her car, though I couldn’t hear a word of it as I snickered to myself. Today’s my day beoch. Sorry ‘bout your luck. I ignored her and rushed to the building’s entrance, quickly buzzing Aubrey’s apartment before the lady could catch up with me.”
Hah!!! The joys of being able to do whatever you want in your own story. That paragraph hasn’t even been edited yet, but I felt like sharing.
Enjoy the rest of your day!! 🙂
