Monday Mayhem – Fab five

Posted on Sep 16, 2013 by Margaret Ethridge   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

What I’ve been working on: Lots of stuff for the day job, a little writing, and conquering the headache from hell (thank God it’s gone now).

What’s running around in the back of my mind: The story I will start while on the annual DSRA writing retreat in Hot Springs next weekend.

What I’ve accomplished: You remember that story I shared last week? It’s a hot contemporary novella called Jump Into Love and I got some awesome news about it this week. I’ll share as soon as everything is official. 🙂

What new goal I’m chasing: Finished the first pass of revisions on my WIP. Now all I have to do is write the ending!

What I saw: “A green room, a telephone, a red balloon, a picture of the cow jumping over the moon….” My future reader.

To celebrate my pending good news, here are another five lines from Jump Into Love:

“You’re a hell of a gumshoe, Detective.”

Steely eyes warmed again as he met her gaze across the roof of the car, and a hint of a smile pulled at the corners of his mouth. “Where were you when I was looking for a date for New Year’s Eve?”

She opened the car door and shook her head. “As far away from any canasta club as I could get.”

    So happy your headache’s gone! I totally yelled that too. I’m jealous of your special writing retreat. Although, while you’re pounding out the words, I will be spending time with my family in celebration of my grandma’s 90th birthday. And I’ll find some time to write too, of course. Because I don’t want you lapping me again. 😉

    Absolutely thrilled about your Jump Into Love news! Can’t wait till it’s official! Your future reader is totes adorbs, fyi. Hope you have a fantastic week! 🙂
