A Beauty- What Gender?
So I debated what to share today; I was talking with someone on my author who appreciated some behind-the-novel thought processes I shared with my "Mommy's Diary Begins" post- where I wrote a diary entry as Mara, the "Mommy" of my book "A Master and a Mommy." When I listed my current WIPs, she commented about how diverse they are. I was thinking to share some lines from one of my WIPs (I have two from Vala's Story-verse), but I decided on "Backward Dating," which is hopefully going to be published by Cuil Press in June.
Now because of the six line limit, I unfortunately only get to introduce you to two of my main characters; I'll introduce the third character next weekend.
Various conversations began and ended as people bonded over feeling not quite included, although no more worse than usual.
Mid-way through the line, a Persian man using a wheelchair smiled at a Greek beauty of indeterminate gender.
With jade green eyes glowing affectionately in a heart-shaped face the color of caramel candies, the beauty said, "Hi. I'm Ocean and my pronouns are ze and hir. And you are?"
"Naveed. My pronouns are he and him."

Thanks, though I prefer to think of it as the way introductions should be.

Ah, what an excellent way of introducing yourself! I'm hoping the singles bars of the future will use it!

Thanks and totally! So much better than just guessing or assuming.

Love the description of 'the beauty'. I have a soft spot for green eyes. :)

I got the vibe in the place with the first line - very nice!
