Happy Wednesday! We’re on spring break here. Our family spent the first few days out of town. Now that we’re back, I’m catching up on all kinds of reading. I’ll be posting a number of reviews in the coming weeks. I’ve had a bunch of requests for reviews of science fiction, which should be interesting.
Speaking of catching up, I’ll have some writing to do once everyone’s back in school next week. I need to finish my short story about the former missionary. I’ll post from that for a bit until I have enough written in my other WIPs. I ended up cutting about half of what I had written. Usually I wait until edits, but I figured out I was taking it in the wrong direction. The story is far less bulky without it, and I can always recycle bits of it for another WIP.
WIPmath: 4/19/17 = 1 + 9 = 1 paragraph, 9 sentences
Jo looked at the RSVP phone number. Of course it was Annie James. If Jo called her, Annie would talk her into going. With any of the others, Jo could have politely declined, and that would’ve been the end of it. They likely only invited her because they’d agreed to, not because they wanted to see her. Jo imagined all of them as adult versions of the girls they’d been. Pretty, proper women with “hearts for the Lord.” Like Jo, they might have adult children following in their footsteps. Unlike Jo, their children probably still spoke to them, probably allowed them contact with their grandchildren.
Like what you read? Be sure to check out the other entries and add your own. Just post a bit of your WIP, connect it to the date, and link up with us. Many thanks to Emily Witt for giving us this space. Happy reading and writing!
