Mind you, my writing is going backwards, I have just deleted another half a page. At this rate it will soon be a novella ...
 
In my WIP 12 of my characters have to go to a fancy dress party as a biblical character and act out a scene from their life, so I'm trying to see who best fits who... Am I asking for trouble? Ah, there's a reason for them to do this, it's supposed to show up what the demon is doing in real life.

No, I didn't invent this kind of parody, Shakespeare used the method of a play within a play when Hamlet wanted to show everyone what really happened to his father and enacted the murder.

I'm using the episode of Herodias daughter, Salome, who danced so well for Herod the King, that he promised to give her anything she wanted. Her mother told Salome to ask for the head of John the Baptist- why? Because John had told Herodias that marrying her divorced husband's brother, was simply fornication. And she didn't take too kindly to that.

Now, I'm really trying hard not to show off, do bear with me! :rolleyes:

Hope your migraine's better @Barbara
