Well, well, well, looky here. It’s the 3rd. Hmmm….could give you just three words, or three short sentences, but I’ll be nice (don’t spread it around, I’ll deny it) and give you three paragraphs to introduce you to Rainie.
“Hey! Break it up!” The words jumped from Rainie’s mouth before her brain could filter the situation and come up with an alternative plan. Had her mouth waited, her brain would have informed her that getting involved in a fight between two grown men who outweighed and out muscled her would not be one of her better ideas. But old habits die hard, and when had her mouth ever waited on her brain?
Both men looked to where she stood at the mouth of the alley. The shorter, rounder man — the one on the losing end of the proposition — took the opportunity to break free and beat feet in the opposite direction. That left Rainie facing a pissed-off hunk of six-foot tall lean muscle. He glared at her, then turned and took off after the fat man.
And now for my Wednesday ROW80 update. Well, I’ve been writing every day. That’s a plus. Some on Emergence, some on Crossing Paths and then a bunch on . . . well . . . not sure what. I’ll just call it Literary Exercise as there is no way in Hades I’m working on three WIPs at once. Absofreakly no way. But, when I’m stuck on my WIPs I still need to write. So, I open up the electronic notebook and just go wherever my fingers lead me. Keeps me in practice. I do have to take a look at Scrivener and see how close I am to being done with the first draft of E. I think over 1/2 way to my self-imposed 110k target. Yes, it’s going to be a bit longer and a bit more involved than FOHK. Hopefully that’s a good thing.
And now, one of Rainie’s theme songs.
