“You #reap what you #pour,” she said, nodding wisely. “A #reed is but an unloved flower. A pearl in the hand is worth two in the bush.” Madeleine saw the bottle of Sagacity Serum on the table. “You have to take the full dose or it doesn’t work right, Bev.” #366FF #vss365 #whistpr
“Oh, this #fudge is #divine. Chocolate is the #chief flavor, of course, but what’s that #earthy undertone? Coffee? Some kind of liqueur?” “Chef’s secret,” she said, smiling, eyes darting to the bottle of poison. “Another piece?” #vss365 #vss365 #bravewrite
Election stress has affected my attention span, but I’m getting caught up. I’m working on a project that started as an idea while I read Halloween books to my daughter. I’m trying something new (for me), which is writing even scenes I know will probably be deleted in future drafts, carrying on even when I’ve done something I know needs to be changed, really embracing “write now, fix it later,” and it’s more fun and less stressful than I expected.
“I feel a real #kinship with you, Nicki. Like our #souls knew each other in a past life. You know?” She batted her eyes in what she clearly thought was a #sultry manner. “Forget it, Lauren, you aren’t getting my triple-chocolate #fudge recipe.” #bravewrite #whistpr #366FF #vss365
There’s an #owl hooting in the old elm tree. It makes a coughing sound and a stream of black #ink pours from its beak. It shakes its head and flies off while the ink arranges itself into words. You’ll find them in the morning on the dewy grass. FOLLOW ME. #vssmagic #vss365
I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year, but since I’m not great at following rules, I’m working on short stories. I still have the 50,000 word goal, I’m just drafting as many stories as I can of ideas that I haven’t gotten around to writing. I’m still optimistic on Day Two, so that’s something. Are you doing NaNoWriMo? What are you working on?
“What are you doing in that puddle?” “Just having an #invigorating #mud bath! Want to join in?” “I’m actually going to go *inside* the spa for a treatment.” “It’s your #choice, but this mud is free. The mud in there is $70 an hour.” “Move over.” #366FF #whistpr #bravewrite
