I’m about 12,000 words into the sequel of An Airship Named Desire, and already, the characters are returning like I wrote them yesterday. Bea is still one of my favorite characters to write, hands down. She’s so hot-headed and opinionated, but that’s why I love her. Any situation, when asking what Bea would do, it’s usually the ballsiest, craziest option. She’s brazen and a bit of an asshole at times, but she’s as loyal as the ship she flies and would do absolutely anything for her crew.
One of the things I forgot about with writing Bea though, is how much she butts heads with others, in true Aries girl fashion. Which makes the upcoming scene I’m about to write that much more fun, because I’m introducing certain characters from the extended universe, and chances are she’s not going to take a liking to them on first try.
I’m going to keep plugging away though, hopefully ramping up the pace this month. In the meanwhile, I’ll leave you with this unedited preview.
“A couple sat by the fireplace whispering to one another. The moment I walked in, they turned and stared, giving me one hell of a sneer. Too bad I didn’t play their games. I grinned extra wide, thrust my hips forward, and waggled my fingers at the pair. From behind me, Mordecai audibly sighed. I promised I wouldn’t start any fights—none were made about ladylike behavior.”
