Ack! No writing today. And, I lost some words in edits. (I edit as I go along, then go back again and edit more.)
Current Word Count 42,470… The goal is still the same. To finish the book!!
But I had an enjoyable lunch hour with a great friend. Margaret is actually my brainstorming buddy. We don’t brainstorm much now, though. We don’t see each other as much.
About 7 or 8 years ago, Margaret and I decided to get fit and we started walking after work. Our offices are barely a block from each other and the area is full of sidewalks in a park-like setting. When you walk with someone, you talk. The more we talked, the more I realized I missed writing. I had stopped writing when I entered high school. Traded the pen for the stage and loved every minute of drama class. Yet being an actress wasn’t practical and when I met the love of my life, I decided I didn’t want to go to New York or Hollywood as I planned. (Thank God!)
Anyway, Margaret and I would meet after work, walk a couple of miles, and talk up whatever story I had in my head. She was my very first reader and continues to be a person I trust with my stories, even in their young stages. She’s an avid reader of more than romance, so her opinion matters a lot.
