Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Continuing to share the new revision of “Gotta Have That Look,” about teenagers and genetic injections. I’ve shared some from an early draft with Six Sentence Sunday, but this is mostly a new plot. I’m going to skip over some classroom stuff. I’m going to skip ahead a little; Jimmy’s friends, Bryan and Stephanie, are trying to help him figure out what kind of ‘look’ would impress Diane.
“Last month, she went to a bunch of Diskball dances with Murry Hanson, didn’t she?”
“Just two, on the ninth and the twenty-fourth,” Bryan said.
“Murry had dark skin then,” Stephanie added, and Jimmy began typing. “His build was very muscular, with dark brown hair, though he cut it between dances. A little taller than average, and he moved the skin-tone up by two shades the last week of the month. Maybe that’s why Diane didn’t go near him again.” Stephanie caught Bryan’s eyes. “So I notice things about guys.”
