She’s a janitor: does it matter what your character does for a living? #gettingtoknowflorence #bittersweethalloween #halloweenromance

(Because I’ve got my More Than A Guilty Pleasure class on my blog right now daily for writing prompts, and because I’ve a new release out this month and another coming in November, I’m multi-tasking and I’m relating posts to my class’ experience AND to my launch stuff. So bear with me, kittens. All education is beneficial, right? And you know I’ll throw some smut in here and there for you, just because I’m me)

So. Question:

The short answer: Does it matter what your character does for a living?

Fuck, yeah.

The long answer… well, it’s really long. Let’s stick with the short one.

Florence is a janitor. She cleans banks, a reproductive health clinic, and people’s houses.

Will is a Vice-President, Strategy at a major Canadian bank.

See the potential problems, conflicts… coincidences?

Yum.

I decided to make Florence a janitor before I came up with Florence, by the way. My good friend Marie was working nights cleaning–well, banks, among other things. Also a post office. And when I’d go visit her, I’d help her out, so she’d get through her work faster and so we’d have more time to hang.

And one day, we had an encounter with one of the bank mangers, who treated us like total non-people because, you know, she was a bank manager and we were holding mops.

I decided right then and there that my next heroine was going to be a janitor, she was going to dance with a mop, and she was going to be WAY hotter and interesting than that hoity toity bank manager. Who, I knew because I had emptied the contents of her garbage can, was on a diet and cheating on it.

Writers are dangerous people.

WANT MORE FLORENCE?
BUY BITTERSWEET HALLOWEEN NOW 🙂

But, as I’ve said before, I don’t recommend starting the Text Me, Cupid adventure with Episode 3, so if you want to catch up with Will and Florence:

BUY MESSY CHRISTMAS Amazon // Everywhere Else (Episode 1)
BUY DELAYED VALENTINE Amazon // Everywhere Else (Episode 2)

Or, you can wait until Text Me, Cupid splashes EVERYWHERE in December.
+ more info about TEXT ME, CUPID

I’m good either way. 😉 See you tomorrow at 4 am for the writing prompt, yeah? I’m so proud of y’all for doing your homework.

+ COME WRITE DIRTY WITH ME this SATURDAY 😉

Kisses,

About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance Tell Me, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) Consequences (of defensive adultery), and the rom-com (she's versatile) Cherry Pie Cure, as well as the non-fiction collection of essays Rough Draft Confessions: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway. Coming in 2018: Text Me, Cupid, a steamy romance in four episodes. Current WiPs: Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Jewel of the Not-So-Spectacular Boobs, All In the Cards, and Un-Valentine. Yes, working on four projects simultaneously is a spectacularly bad idea.
