Original Sin

Annie Lennox in her song "Missionary Man" speaks of original sin. As I'm borrowing from Annie about sin, at left I borrowed some missionary men. Seemed fitting.

My characters sin. They're not boastful about it. In fact, if asked they will lie about it (another sin). But sin they do.

I'm looking for an original sin. I'm looking for a sense of betrayal with a twist. I have something near that - where one character convinces another to try something which most probably will result in death. Self-murder, in this case. It's clever but not for WIP.

I'm going to have to play with dichotomy. I might have to play with old Nick. Interesting.

I'm going to have to invent an original sin tonight. I think I'm up for the task.

I'd ask you to join me but I know you are writing. On the other hand, you know what I'll be writing about.

Off to do a little wrong. Don't answer the doorbell. It might not be who you think.
