Approaching the half-way line
2526, and my, it's getting turgid! Running total now 23,513. Tomorrow with any luck I'll reach the half way point. That will also be half way through the month, which means that I have zero of the "buffer zone" one is supposed to have of extra verbage, in case of illness/writer's block/emergency in the last days of the month. So I still need to keep doing the catch up. Here's an immensely dreary excerpt:
That night she found it hard to sleep. The dead girl was there in her mind, her presence seemed near. Her two faces: the glitteringly angry beauty in the hotel, and the contorted horror in the alleyway. She doubted that if Rasha had lived they would have been in any way soul sisters, but her death had linked them. Her curiosity was growing. After the shock of the party had worn off, she found herself wondering more about those girls, how they slipped into that twilight world of debauchery, orgy, even prostitution. She wondered what Susie got out of it. Was it really any different to popstars and footballers and their glamour models and groupies back in London? Money, sex, fame, drugs.
