Stuff and Nonsense

Writers are just people who have a whole lot on the inside that they need to get to the outside, with pen and paper as their preferred method of transport. Same with dancers, artists, and singers - all the same urges with differing transportation. ~Graycie Harmon

Dull day yesterday. I really needed to go to the grocery store, but my Runner needs a new starter and isn't reliable enough for me to trust (DH has the part ordered and will do the work on the weekend ... it's handy having a mechanic in the house), and my DH had the bed of his truck full of stuff so I couldn't take it... so we stayed home. Milkless. Egg noodle-less. It was a tragedy.

It did give me lots of time to work, though, so that was good. I worked through some character sheets on my H/H: Zack and Sydney (which was the overwhelming favorite name). I found out that Syndey's parents are both dead, and that her mother had ovarian cancer. Syd was an only child, absorbed into Cori's family in high school. She lives in Montana now, and is a freelance writer. Zach wasn't a surprise, of course. He was the most developed (at least in my head) of Cori's brothers in "Kitchen Matches" and it's going to be fun to watch him fall. He'll fight it every step of the way.


You Are Play

Compared to most people, you are very active and energetic.

You have a daring, challenging spirit. You're willing to go into something blind.

You are playful, carefree, and optimistic. You are up for trying anything.

If you dream it, you usually end up doing it. You're not one for putting your dreams on hold.

I'm Play as well. Sounds as though your story is coming together quite nicely. Sorry to hear about the starter. I hope your Dh gets it fixed soon!

Have a fabulous day!
