WIP Wednesday - Who's That Girl?

Poor, poor Grim Grim Glass Vein is feeling rather forgotten. I will get back to it sometime very soon (and then abandon it again to decorate the living room and kitchen - yuck). I'm gathering something else together at the moment and part of that includes my WIP, In Search of Violet Stockings - the title of which will have to go because to me it sounds as if the MC is searching for a girl called Violet Stockings. If it ends up staying, then all hope has been abandoned here. :D Or the story has about turned and he is indeed searching for such a person.

I wonder what Violet Stockings would be like - kooky, I guess, and she'd wear striped tights and... No, no, no mind, don't go there.


*Re title: so did anyone start singing the Madonna song????? I did.

Cate, I didn't start singing the song, but my brain did start playing bits of the movie!

Ah, Madonna at her 80's finest, LOL!

The violet stockings has definitely caught my attention. If that's what you were trying to do great work! I'm totally hooked!

(I may even have violet stockings parading around my head whilst I do my cleaning duties today. :P)

I DID actually start humming that song. Sadly, I don't hate it...and the more I think about it, the more I realize that her darker, more down tempo stuff isn't all that bad...

Aaron Polson said...

I hope Violet is found, or not found...depending on which direction you choose to take. ;)

I thought first the title was about purple socks, and then I thought it was about a girl named Violet Stockings, and then I hoped it was both. It sounds like a winner to me!

I immediately started singing the song, yes. And I think Violet Stockings is a brilliant name, though I did initially think it referred to hosiery. Hm.

Andrea Allison said...

I'm probably one of the few people who looked at the that title and didn't immediately jump in to a bad Madonna impersonation. Was never really a big fan of hers.

Violet Stockings sounded like a stripper name to me though I doubt that was the direction you were going in. At least I don't feel so bad for abandoning my story.

Cate Gardner said...

Hinny, I may have to buy violet stockings now. :D

Barry, turning my naff dial up to 100 - I'm sort of a Madonna fan.

Aaron, I'm doubting I shall ever know the truth of it.

Kate, :D

Katey, she's stockings at the moment. :D

Andrea, you're so right.

Natalie L. Sin said...

Ah, back when Madonna was reasonably sane.

Paula Ray said...

Violet Stockings sounds like Violent Stalkings :) I wonder if Raspberry Stockings might sound a bit more "appetizing" :)

Your story is intriguing I've no doubt. Can't wait to see what you final decide to name it.

Paula Ray said...

oh dear, now I'm singing Raspberry Beret by Prince -le sigh...

Cate Gardner said...

Natalie, I believe she liked Korean boy bands back then.

Paula, the story is getting progressively worse.

I read it briefly as Violent Stockings! Which brings to mind some kind of bikini-clad, gun toting, uber-women...

I'm sure there's at least a Tarantino movie in there:)
