Pink Inspiration

I am in the midst of book eight for Mills and Boon. This is my second CDC story and I'm currently in the middle of Nigeria with my characters Evan and Violet.  I still have another 15,000 words to write but should be finished in the next two weeks.

But my mind is beginning to plan ahead. I have another story to write for another publisher along with some other authors.  This will be a bit different from what I currently write and as I've already completed my partial I find myself looking on the Internet for inspiration.

Here's where my story starts.

Aren't they fabulous?  I'm not going to give the game away but they feature heavily in chapter one!

And what do think of this beauty? Can you imagine the rustle when this dress moves? I haven't quite figured out how it will happen yet, but you can bet my heroine will have cause to wear this dress.

And finally, what ring would capture my heroine perfectly? Why, a pink diamond of course.
So this ring will be working it's way into my story.  I currently have these three pictures printed and on my wall.
Waiting for my heroine to reappear.
And her name?
Well, I haven't given too much away so will tell you that the girl who will possess all these items is called Selena.

What do you think of her shoes, dress and ring?
I hadn't even realised a pink theme was going on until I collected my pictures together.  Selena, a pink girl?  Well, it I never knew it!


  1. Fantastic, I can't wait. BTW I wish I could write 15,000 words in a fortnight!

  2. It works out at just over a thousand words a day - you can do it Jean!

  3. Hi Scarlet:

    I’ve heard of pantsers and plotters but this is the first time I’ve heard of a fashionista approach to writing. It’s a little like Michelangelo seeing the statue in the stone and chipping the excess marble away until the image is freed. Way to go!

  4. Thanks Vince - feeling the urge to tell everyone you compared me to Michelangelo!

  5. I covet them all! They're gorgeous! Can't wait to read it :)

  6. Lacy, I wish I actually owned them, but the ring is £250,000 and shoes £5000! Not likely!

  7. Buying a lottery ticket, if I win I'll split it with you!

  8. Oooh, another publisher?? And that ring - OMG, 250k?? Go you!!

  9. The whole outfit looks wonderful Scarlet, and such a lovely shade of pink. I'm like a magpie, I love sparkly things. Sounds like a super story, can't wait to read it.

  10. Hi jackie, yes only £250,000 for that ring. Maybe we should all buy one for every finger!

  11. Thanks cara. I have the definite magpie in me too!
