Happy Saturday! Life is back on track after the storm-that-wasn’t last weekend. I was glad to be back in dance classes; they’d been canceled the last two weeks.
I haven’t done a lot of writing this week. There were too many other things to catch back up on, including my editing jobs. Speaking of which, in case you missed it in any of the many other places I posted it, my publisher is seeking proofreaders.
One last thing: I’m working on a Super Top-Secret Project (okay, it’s not that secret, but I’m keeping it a surprise for now). I’ll have details for you next week, but some of you who write great lesbian fiction might want to stay tuned!
My snippet this week follows from last week’s in Ashes & Alms, my short story in the Never Too Late anthology from Beaten Track. (Seriously, go check this out…some of our past & present Snippeters are in it!)
Forty years; that was the reason for the postcard invitation. If everyone showed, all five of the others would be meeting back in the same part of Chicago where they’d spent a summer fixing houses and making Bible-themed artwork with school-aged children. Jo was the only one, as far as she knew, who still lived in their hometown. She’d stayed to get her life on track after what had happened that summer, but she’d only succeeded in creating more messes. Three of them, in fact. She supposed she was fortunate her mother had come around eventually. If only some of that would rub off on Jo’s grown daughter.
