This summer has been a fun one, I guess. We’re back on at the Y, we’ve been to the beach, we’ve been to the waterpark a couple times, the kids have gone to the cabin with Grammy and Grampy, my daughter is now six and repeating Kindergarten because she wasn’t as ready for it as we thought last year, my son is still eight and has moved on to 3rd grade, school will be starting in just a few weeks, and my craptop—I mean laptop—crapped out on me again. This time, it’s more than just another key giving up the ghost. This time, it won’t get out of a “login-sorry there’s a problem restart-can’t fix the problem without you telling me what to do” loop. It’s currently with my bestie’s tech husband, so I’m crossing my fingers but not holding my breath. So that’s where I’m at. I’m on my hubby’s laptop right now to let y’all know what’s what. (It’s a dinosaur — it’s still running Windows 7, hence the need for a new one.)
- waiting on the first round of beta reads for Ain’t No Angel since I got through the first round of major revisions over the weekend
- doing some beta reading of my own, and also trying to finish drafting Balancing Act.
- Those couple of scenes in Trouble Makers still need to be finished/written, too, to make that draft complete.
Hot on the heels of the last challenge, @mreauow & @Making_Pots and I set up a whole new challenge.
The challenge: You’ve been stood up, people are staring and talking, they’re trying to kick you out if your date doesn’t show soon. Some random person shows up, and says, “Just go with it,” and holy shit, you had a great time!
Then we hashed out the details.
- Due April 30
- 1500 words
- 2nd person POV
- There must be a twist
- From only one person’s perspective
Let me tell you about the problems I had with this one.
