Turns out we have a critique on the 'Perfume' project this Friday. I was under the impression that I didn't really have to get it finished, just have 'ideas'... turns out I was wrong.
I've spent a while working on this. Initially I hated it and thought it struck totally the wrong tone for the book, but then remembered that the whole point is to break with cliche.
So here we go.
Now I really like it.
It still needs work, yes, but I'm more pleased with it than I expected to be.
