I’ve had a couple of fairly busy days, so not got a lot done, but today managed 2.2k words, so we’re getting back on track. our hero Marc now has a definite date for his fortune to arrive. On the strength of that he’s signed up for an office in a rather strange office block. It’s run by Pd’E who I think might turn out to be a bit more than the real estate agent that Marc thinks she is.
He’s also got himself a receptionist/assistant, SB after she interviewed him, somewhat aggressively I thought, but then again she is super efficient and might be able to instill in him the discipline he really needs to make a go of the business. Plus she’s a friend of Marc’s new room-mate and between them they can exert a lot of push on the poor hero.
It’s strange how these things happen, but I was sitting and munching on a few crisps, which I don’t normally eat when I thought of the beginnings of what might just turn out to be a major plot line. This is involving his previous boss CB and the two main villains, AC and his evil twin sister SC. Sometimes you need an opportunity to think rather than keep plugging away and on this occasion I think it will work out nicely. I’ve already got a couple of other plot lines in my head. One was always going to be minor and the other, while it would have been major had started to feel a bit like a cliche. That can now become less important and the new major plot line should be both unusual and topical enough to please readers.
