As per my previous post, about the little girls in the audience:
I have not finished my latest short story, working title “Super Sleeping Beauty,” where the point of view character is Cal the Intellectual. I need to put final edits into my old barber story, which I rewrote to be in first person. And yet, I have started another story.
Kittygirl is a little girl with cat powers. I think she would be great for a short story. I imagine her saving Holly and others from an evil ice cream maker, the Brain Freezer (his evil laugh involves chattering teeth). Kittygirl could be immune to Brain Freezer’s ice cream due to her being lactose intolerant. The story is barely an outline right now. But I think Kittygirl might start using my brain as a scratching post.
Now I have to figure out her costume. I have written her wearing cat ears and gloves with authentic claws. But perhaps claws and cat ears would become part of her natural self after she gets powers, and thus she would not have a costume (maybe just a cape she can put on in a hurry). The main thing is that Kittygirl is a cute, sweet, and very brave little girl. One of the ladies in a critique group said she loved Kittygirl, “she’s such a cliche!” I wanted an adorable little girl who becomes Holly’s biggest fan.
I know my story will be better that the Catwoman movie. But Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels would be better also.
