I finished my edits for my story in The Lake House last evening and if you're really interested in knowing a little something about it, then at the end of this blog you will find a small excerpt :) I know I'm a procrastinator and honestly, they didn't hurt one bit :) But, I wouldn't be me if I didn't put things off.
I've got a nice outline going for my Herbs and Writing talk for Saturday. Now I just have to finish putting it together and get the power point done and set up the agenda for our monthly meeting.
So today after work my plans are to finish up my housework (not a whole lot there but a few things that need done) and then get back to work on the Herbs and Writing talk.
I'm pretty sure there is not enough time in a day to accomplish everything I want to accomplish in a day, but each day brings me closer to the goals I set for myself. I want to get the things out of the way I have to get done so I can get back to Unfinished Business. It's driving me insane I haven't worked on that since retreat, but priorities come first and sometimes that sucks :)
Remember My Name (my story for The Lake House) is a bit different than I normally write. Even though it is a paranormal, there's no witches and vampires or werewolves. This one is demons and destroyers. If I have a mind to, it will also have a follow up storyline, but that is future, and only if I decide to continue with it. Right now my focus is to get this story out for our anthology and get Unfinished Business out. Then I will be working toward getting Destiny's Price to all of you along with Passionate Pursuit and maybe just maybe Darkness Brings Desire. I've been stalling on Destiny's Price for a few reasons, but after talking to some of my readers I really think it's time.
Okay, I should get you my excerpt for Remember My Name and get busy. I've got a lot to do today :)
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
He threw his hands heavenward, “And you call yourself a seer!”
“I call myself a demon destroyer.”
He reached down, retrieving her sword, thrusting it in her hand. “Then kill me. If you believe in your heart, I am no more than some demon to be vanquished then by all means put me out of this misery I have endured for fifty years.”
He stretched his arms outward, standing perfectly still just inches from her. “Go ahead kill the demon you believe I am.” He yelled into the fast approaching nightfall.
Erui raised her sword. Her hands trembled, barely containing the heavy weapon. His earlier words rang out in her ears. Misery I have endured for fifty years. All too similar to her own period of grief.
“Who are you?” Her words barely audible even to herself.
Pain cried out from his soul, adding to her bewilderment. Remember my name. His words weren’t spoken aloud, but her heart heard them as if he’d screamed.
“Kill me, Erui, please.” Anguish lined the words he begged, loud enough for the world to hear.
She lifted the sword once again.
