I have been writing away from home. We promised to take our granddaughters away for a few days during the school holidays, and so I’ve had to rough it, writing at the kitchen table with the sounds of a Nintendo Switch going off in my ears, when we’re not out trying new food and swimming, or playing mini gold.
It’s a bit hard to get in the mood.
But, our main character, Jack, is back home, having got away from Maryanne, and knowing he has a package to get from Rosalie, he invites her out to dinner.
Dinner is pleasant, and a rapport develops into something else when he invites her back to his place.
And, of course, it’s probably too much to expect the romance will go as smooth as it should, and something will come along to liven it up.
And at some point we will discover another of Rosalie’s hidden talents acquired from an undisclosed past life, not related to the romance aspect. If that sounds a little strange it probably is but I don’t want to give away the plot just yet.
Today’s effort amounts to 2,337 words, for a total, so far, of 43,759.
