mini_wrimoDay 1 - Confessions of a Three-eyed Fag Hag (215 words)
My seven o' clock appointment was fifteen minutes late.

"Looks like I'm missing the dedication at Maddy's." I said to Pavo. Maddy's is the "anchor" of the eight blocks of what is called Rainbow Row if you're being politically correct and Fag town or Gay burg if you're not. It's the oldest, the biggest and what is agreed to be the best of the drag clubs in the city. It's right off the south parking lot of the baseball stadium. The building was being re-dedicated after all the renovations they did after the fire. A fire that seemed pretty damn suspicious but that the Fire Department doesn't have much interest in.

My shop, "Crystal Sense" is on the fifth block between Carmichael and Grange; I'm tucked between the Laundromat and Common Grounds café and book store. It's a narrow, long space that used to be a tailor's I sell crystals, incense, essential oils and herbal tea, just like it says in my ad in the Shopper's Weekly. I do Tarot readings by appointment and other things that I don't advertise in the paper, unlike certain members of my family who enthusiastically tell the world they are in touch with the magical side of the world. I have enough problems without that nonsense, thank you.

I like this so far, it's an intriguing beginning and I'd like to see what happens next.

It has a 'novel' feel to it, or even a series. The last sentence defintely feels like famous last words.

*laughs* Yes, this is a short story that I'm attempting to expand into something. I signed up for 100 words a day and I'm going to try and go for more if possible.

Oh, yes, that last line will be famous last words. :)

I really liked this. You set up an interesting character in an intriguing world setting. The tone of the POV character was amusing.

Good luck!
