Happy Wednesday! I’m not at my best today. I had some dental work done yesterday (nothing major), but I’m still feeling a bit sore. Anything like that usually makes my fibro worse, so I’m having a low-key day while I recover.
I haven’t written much since last week. I did a bit of housekeeping, digging around in some old files. I also added a couple scenes to Minuet. I could write a whole blog post about this, but I realized that a big part of my lack of motivation is that I never envisioned being a career writer. I like writing (and getting paid to do it). But it’s not something I want to do as a means of paying the bills.
Anyway, despite that, I still do like working on my various projects. So here’s my snippet for the week, still from Minuet. We left Mack and Amelia sitting in South Station, waiting for the commuter train. Mack had some angry thoughts about Sage (and himself).

Amelia tapped Mack’s wrist. “You’re thinking too hard.”
Mack let her take his hand, but he looked away, staring at the long line at the McDonald’s counter. He wasn’t angry with her for trying so hard or for how much she’d once cared about Sage. She’d known him longer than either of them knew Mack. She hadn’t even questioned Mack when he’d called her to say he’d taken the day off and needed her to accompany him. He couldn’t ask her to do any more than she already had.
So he lied about what was on his mind. “I’m wondering if Jamie will be awake when we get back, that’s all.”
“You’re worried about him.” She gently turned Mack’s head so he was looking at her. How did she know him so well? “He will be okay. He’s with the others. I meant what I said. He’ll eventually realize he’s not alone anymore.”
