Happy first Wednesday of the new year! It sure is quiet around my house, with everyone back to work and school. I’m back to it as well, already going through a couple editing jobs and continuing with my various manuscripts.
I have three projects for this year and no idea which will be done first. Minuet is going well; the writing is much smoother than it was for Drumbeat. I’m researching stuff for Tree of Life. I have some upcoming news on that one, but for now it’s Top Secret. Stay tuned! And I have an old NaNoWriMo project I need to get into better shape.
Today, I’m still in Minuet, since it’s the one with the most written in it. Mack and Amelia have left Sage’s apartment and are on their way back to Mack’s. (The above picture is indeed a sage plant.)

They’d taken the T to Sage’s apartment, and the next train didn’t leave for nearly an hour. That gave Mack and Amelia time to sit in South Station with a couple cups of decaf in front of them. Mack didn’t touch his; he was still too worked up from their confrontation with Sage.
He would’ve like to say he didn’t see it coming, couldn’t have predicted it, didn’t know Sage was capable. Except he had known. Sage had been obsessed with Jamie from day one.
Mack warned him off, but Sage ignored that advice and latched onto Jamie, even after they all knew the truth about his past. It was Sage’s personal mission to get his attention. When he wanted to, Sage could turn the charm up to a hundred. Took two more years before Jamie finally cracked. Two years in which Mack wished he’d been able to somehow convince Jamie not to do it.
