Miss Murder


Millicent Stingley took two hours preparing for her perp walk. She settled on a blue Chanel pantsuit that accentuated her curves. Hippy and busty, Millicent’s 160 IQ hunted prey in the right outfit.

****blogger’s note****

Millicent was created last year for a short story – Cinnamon Girl, about a female chemist serial killer who specializes in poison and drug hybrids. She’s being expanded for a novella length story later this year as well as a summer blog series with my friend Tara called Dead Money https://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/dead-money/

This is a reworked opening 33 words of Millicent’s story. Trifextra wanted the first 33 words of a book you’re writing. http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/  I’m pretty sure I’ll keep the name “Cinnamon Girl” for the title but for this exercise, a song I used before with her, AFI’s Miss Murder, is going to be used, now.

  1. If I didn’t already know so much about Millicent, this would really leaving me wanting to know more. It.s definitely an excellent opening.

    Well, she has to look good, doesn’t she? I’d choose a Chanel suit too if one were in my closest. So does she get ID’d?

  3. Millicent. Even her name evokes the thought of Cinnamon Girl. Gotta love a stylish killer. Killer pumps, too, no doubt! Thanks for introducing me to a new character – you certainly have a knack for creating strong women. Usually it’s female writers who do that, but I’ve found several men on these blogs who are secure enough to create kickass, badass women! Loved it. Amy
    Don’t know if you saw this, but it’s right down your alley! http://sharplittlepencil.com/2012/07/24/real-women-dverse/
