Say it again. BAM!
Well, my fine followers, i have succeeded in saving myself $10 while saving Dave from overeating. All and all a good day.
No $10 for Dave. Instead, he gets a picture of a puppy.
With much trepidation, i present a fragment from today’s writing:
Ras and Beth and Brian sat silently around a salad made from wild Purslane and Yucca flowers Brian had collected. He’d also come back with mulberry wine stolen from Chris’ trailer. “There’s a plan, right?”
Ras was too sleepy to look at him, and she felt unsure. “Like I said, we’ll need a car.” She hadn’t wanted to mention this part. “The client didn’t pay anything up front.”
Brian choked and ultimately spit wine. “What?”
She put her hands to her face. “I know, it’s just…”
“He didn’t give you any money, how do you know he’ll pay when we get there?”
She shrugged. There was no way she was going to convince them to do this. “I just know.”
Beth scratched her nose, looked sleepy. “I’m excited.” She took Ras’ hand. “I’ve always wanted to live up north.”
“No you haven’t.” Brian looked sullen. But he took Beth and Ras’ hands. “How will we get up there?”
Their hands felt warm. Ras felt lighter than she had in weeks. “We get a car and just figure something out.”
Brian used his free hand to pick at a fibrous chunk of carpet remnant. “You certainly have a lot of faith.”
She beamed. “You have no idea.”
There. Let’s move on…
Now my problem is to get 3000 words done without it taking ALL DAY. Whew!
Tune in tomorrow: As Sean Markey tries to take my hard earned $10!
Thanks! And thanks for lending the motivation.
