Happy Saturday! Hope everyone’s doing well. After the wind storm, we also ended up with a snow storm and over 26 inches of snow over roughly a day and a half. Two more days off from school meant two more days of not working. Sigh. So I still don’t have much to show for my writing effort.
We saw Beauty & the Beast yesterday, and it was wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about it. I definitely had my doubts, especially after so many friends posted that they were wary about a few aspects. But I’m happy to say that it was every bit as good as I’d hoped.
I’m snippeting again from Pink in the Mirror, my recently re-released short story about drag racing, the 1950s, and a young woman finding herself. Here, she’s wondering where the road will take her, both literally and figuratively.
She rolled slowly out of the shed and up to the same open strip of road she’d taken earlier for the trial run. For a moment, she idled there, staring down the darkening road ahead. It would be so easy, she thought, to take off. At the end of the three miles, the road made a north-south T. She could choose where she wanted to go, find her own path and forget about her parents’ pressures and junior college and Russ. She glanced at Dottie, wondering how she would feel if Barbara suggested it.
