Pygmalion

“Ah—ah—ah—ow—ow—ow—oo! I want to talk proper English.”
“It’s a bet! I can do that within eight months! (But you will be my slave while I teach you.)”
“Ah—ah—ah—ow—ow—ow—oo! It’s a deal.”

(After eight months she speaks like a real lady and is emancipated: good for her, not good for him.)

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
