Where Aren't They Now: 20

Lynne was born with a rare disorder in which the only hair she could grow was bangs. It's a form of alopecia found only in Lynne and three other documented cases in the United States.
Honestly, it neither helped nor hindered Lynne's personal life. Kids can be cruel, but there simply aren't that many jokes to be written about such a specific issue. For many years Lynne wore hats, scarves, bandannas, etc... but around puberty she discovered that her classmates hardly noticed her hair, so caught up were they in their own various awkwardnesses.

Brilliant!

Would you be willing to share one of these with me for a guest appearance in my Nano project?

How about highest rating or most comments or a guest vote?

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking to do with them, but you're welcome to use whatever story in whatever way you'd like!

I want to use a character in my novel, written entirely in November. It won't be a main character, as I'm already about 40% done, but a guest appearance would be very easy.

Thanks for the permission.
