Yup, still in Bryan, TX at the ASCA National Specialty, but found myself with some down time yesterday so decided I’d toss out a quick WIPpet. Sorry I didn’t make it to anyone’s last week. Or this week. (Most likely.) And just to clear things up in my Driev quandary–it’s not the risk of rejection. That comes with the territory and I have pretty thick skin, so that’s not why I’m still debating about which avenue to pursue. It’s actually a combination of impatience and inability to craft a respectable synopsis. Possibly lame reasons, but reasons nonetheless.
Okay, my WIPpet, more from The Adorned. I’m not sure if it’s been clearly mentioned in my excerpts, but Fader Price has quite a few tatoos–abstract, tribal-type designs in black or perhaps wode blue. I give you 14 sentences for the year.
She watched him over the top of her mug. “What do the tattoos mean?”
Fader opened his eyes, just enough to see her through his lashes. “Many things.” He sighed and lifted a hand, tracing the line of one down his neck. “They are not easily explained. They are…my history. My future. Choices good and bad. Strength. Weakness.”
“You’re right,” Roe said. “Not easily explained. Forget I asked.”
And since I’ve added no (or very few) words, no ROW80 update. Maybe next week when I’m back home and trying to get into the groove again.
