Did you work for free yesterday? If you are a salaried worker, chances are good you did—your employer pays you a salary that doesn’t account for Leap Year’s additional day.
So if you had to work for free, for just one day, in a heroine’s profession, which would be your choice? Add your own preference in comments, but some thoughts to get you going:
—a governess in an aristocrat’s household, such as in Karen Ranney’s An Unlikely Governess?
—a secretary to a Greek billionaire, as in Abby Green’s Ruthless Greek Boss, Secretary Mistress?
—an auto mechanic, a la Mercy Thompson (from Patricia Briggs’s series)?
—a botanist, as in Adele Ashworth’s My Darling Caroline?
—a necromancer, like Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake?
—a brewery owner, like in Victoria Dahl’s Good Girls Don’t?
