Due to some fast approaching major deadlines The Inkish Writer is going on hiatus for a bit.

This isn't really the way that I would have preferred to do things, but I've been sick recently and I have fallen behind in things that now desperately require my attention. The blog should be back up and running again around January, I expect. If it's early, that's great. If it's going to be later, I'll try to come back in and let you all know.

I hope everyone had a lovely July writing session. Sorry for the unexpected absence!

MC is charming and has had a number of one-night stands. SC (MC's friend and roommate) has only had a couple of serious relationships a while ago (both of which flirted with MC). SC has started seeing someone new and wants to have a night in at the house with this person alone, because they're worried this person will like MC more. MC agrees to go out for the evening, but is leaving as they arrive. The new person is not a stranger, but one of the people MC had a one-night stand with six months ago.


Extra idea food:
  • How does MC react?
  • Do they try to hide this fact from SC?
  • Does the new partner of SC realize who MC is?
  • Do they try to hide their past with MC from SC, also?
  • Does SC figure it out?
  • What does SC do?
