I’ve been making slow, but steady progress with writing the past week. Once school is out and I’m not playing chauffeur so much, my words/day should increase substantially. And I’ll have my college son/backup driver home to help out.
I’m so excited about a September Writer’s Boot Camp Retreat I registered for yesterday – a long weekend in a gorgeous cabin in the Smoky Mountains with workshops and a one-on-one session with C.J. Redwine, author of the Defiance trilogy! If you’re interested in some uninterrupted, quality writing time, workshops and critiques from an experienced, successful author, plus a private chef in a beautiful, scenic location, go here.
On to today’s WIPpet – today we find Lindsey visiting Cain at his house after he was released from the hospital following a concussion during a soccer game. Below is a snippet from Chapter 6. Just a reminder – Eby is Cain’s awesome cat.
As Lindsey played with Eby and talked about our assignment for English, I noticed the attic door behind her slowly creak open about a foot. Eby froze, but stared at the door as it continued to open a few more inches.
Lindsey turned to see where the noise was coming from. “Well, that’s weird. Where does that door lead?”
Before I could answer, Eby went into defense mode, his fur bristling and a low growl emanating from his throat. After a scathing hiss, he leapt from the bed and raced through the bedroom door.
