And So I Have To Ask Myself: Where Have All The Nipples Gone?

.
I have just finished writing a Chapter of Novel 2 - FSLL. This is obviously a good thing. In fact the whole thing is going quite well, I have some bit and pieces I want to redo later and they are highlighted in yellow. I also have some adjustments I want to make to a character, these are highlighted in blue and come with a handy comment bubble.
.
But I worry.
.
I really do.
.
For you see, I have just finished writing a Chapter of Novel 2 - FSLL in which my main protagonist is in a strip club.
.
And not once have I mentioned Nipples. I fear I may be unwell.
.
9987 has nipples in.
.
So I have to ask myself: Where have all the nipples gone?
.
There is an easy fix to this. I could just go back and put some in. But somehow the tone of FSLL doesn't lend itself to nipples.
.
(I know, I was surprised too. What book wouldn't be better with nipples?
"Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?"
"Juliet, show us your tits!" )
.
.
I fear I may be growing up.
.
Disco Kettle doesn't see this as a problem. But he has different tastes, there is nothing gets his water bubbling like a supple flex of power cord, like a shiny plug pin. In fact I think he has a thing for the microwave, they regularly 'Bing' together...
.
But I digress.
.
Where have all the nipples gone? I can only assume someone is stealing my nipples.
.
So if it's you, you unscrupulous fiend, stop it. It's very upsetting. Nipple thief.

I am suggesting that 'Where have all the nipples gone?' would make a wonderful title.

Speaking of wondering where the nipples have gone...I thought DK was a girl!

I don't think you need to fret too much that you are growing up (-;

but look at all those new words you've written - good on you!!!

Caroline - I know, but we both thought 'Lesbian Nurses' was a good title and the world was against us...

DJ - Really? I suppose DK is fairly asexual. But it has a plug doesn't it?

Megan - I too, am impressed by my words. I am mint.

Hmmmm....that is an astute observation and one that I, obviously, hadn't made. Okay, DK is def male but...where do baby DK's come from then?

Well... (sigh)
When a mammy DK and a daddy DK love each other very much...

Don't worry about the lack of nipples for the minute. Maybe there will be somewhere obvious to, ermm, insert them when you redraft?

(Your comment about tabs on my blog cracked me up!)

Maybe your right, b. I'm thinking of maybe storing up all the missing nipples and then just going nuts in book three. I might even call it 'Nipple Inserter.'

B said...

I am always right. My hubby doesn't believe this but it is true. (Or 'I am true' which is what I wrote first. Nothing to do with the wine. Nothing I tells ya!)

Maybe in book three there will be a chapter where every single word is 'nipples'. I live in hope :)
