The twins are Finnegan and Garrett Monroe, from left to right.
Their names are above their heads, but I doubt you can read them.
Never again will I attempt to draw identical twins. Never again. They don't look alike at all but both of them are well drawn so I don't mind.
I imagine that this was one of those twin photoshoots where they do their hair and dress and pose the same.
Except I also imagine this went down right before they were about to leave:
I love little things like this. Finnie and her hair dye.
Finnegan stomped down the stairs, holding the orange shirt out at arm's length like a dirty rag.“I can't wear this,” she said.“Why not?” Mom sighed. “We're about to leave, Finnegan, couldn't you have brought this up earlier?”“You didn't show me the clothes earlier,” Finnie complained. “And have you seen my hair this past year?” she held a lock of it against the sweater. “It's pink, Mom. I can't wear orange.”Mom groaned. “Fine. But look nice, at least, and keep your hair the same. And it has to match with the orange because Garrett is still wearing her sweater.”“Sure,” Finnie said. She draped the sweater over the banister and ran back up to her room.
She wanted purple and berry blue highlights, but Mom put her foot down.
"No, Finnie. One color. Three is too many."
That's it for the art and description, except for one thing:
What do you think? Finnie and Garrett are characters from what is probably going to be my next novel, Hot Pink Hair. (Working title- suggestions appreciated.) I have written some short scenes like what you saw above, both in a document and in my notebook. (I have a pretty notebook now. I like it a lot better than those boring college rule ones.)
And I also wrote a synopsis. Finnie sounds like a main character to me, but nooo. It's Garrett.
Finnegan and Garrett Monroe, twins, are both known for their daring streak, but Finnegan more so than her sister. With her hot pink hair, she's hard to miss. Garrett keeps to the shadows a little more, busying herself with her art club and bringing out her daring only when she needs it. Finnegan, however, keeps her daring out all the time, and Garrett and the rest of Art Club love her for it. But when Finnegan's daring goes too far and lands her in a horrible accident, can Garrett keep it together, or will her sister's hot pink hair slip through her fingers as her life falls apart?That was quite the sentence. Wow. So yeah, I'm thinkin' NaNoWriMo 2017, here I come? It's an exciting prospect.
Caught Outside has gone next to nowhere, but I think maybe sometime I'll keep going... I still have plans to finish it this year, so I better get started.
