While soaking in the bathtub last night I realized my contemporary needed another character. Roscoe. He has dark brown eyes, his broad chest is a dapple brown, black, and gray. He's the cowdog! His first encounter with the heroine, he pees on her suitcase! He will be accepting of Carina and having Brock feel like everyone is consorting against him. It will also give me more ways to show Carina's city-ness and help Brock find her when she is missing.
Maybe this Feng Shui is working! I didn't even have to dig for that inspiration! It's good to not feel in a fog! Though it is foggy outside.
