I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July weekend! My family did our usual thing at the lake house: swimming with the pups, grilling, watermelon margaritas, homemade peach ice cream, and watching the fireworks show over the water. It was a lot of fun, but not at all conducive to writing, so as usual I am in a deep word hole this first week of NaNo
. But I’m not worried, since I’m always more productive when the pressure is on!
7/1 - "How about an apéritif
?" She meets his eyes and gasps. She doesn't need her appetite whetted for the meal she wants to make of him.
7/2 - His girlfriend adores her cat, but it's his bête noire
. He tries being nice to it, but it barfs in his shoes and trips him on the stairs.
7/3 - She must convince everyone that aliens have landed AND that she's compos mentis
. She flushes her meds. It's up to her to save humanity.
7/4 - She has gum on her derrière
, but he doesn't tell her – he doesn't want to seem like a creep. He hopes she doesn't end up too embarrassed.
7/5 - Beautiful woman at the bar surprised him by being en rapport
with his likes. Also surprised him later when she charged for her services.
7/6 - He tries not to grimace as he unwraps his festschrift
, but his colleagues are such poor academics, he'd hoped for a gold watch instead.
7/7 - As a camp counselor, she must act in loco parentis
, which seems like a terrible idea for 16yo who can't even keep her hamster alive.
