Hi, hi, hi y’all! I’m back.
Last week was… well, silly. I spaced. After so many weeks of being off track, I took my “week off” from the ROW80 and all things online and spaced, read books, played video games, took walks with the family, played with our new kitten JuJuBee… and forgot to write a WIPpet post.
But I’m back now with more wordy-goodness some the Unnamed Story (though I call it Phuque Ewe). Now in the dénouement of the sex scene in the story, we’re off to see what a mess ‘Listii and Atyr are going to become after their evening together. Sex affects people… sometimes the effects are good, sometimes bad. And the effects last a while (at least, they can).
Or rather, the baggage we place on sex affects us… and these two have a lot of baggage that they don’t even know they have:
So, continuing on from way back when I wrote Down… Down, Down, here are three small paragraphs (WIPpet maths are: July ( -2-0-1-4)+√9=3):
He felt her retreating mental presence with relief…relief tinged with an emptiness he’d thought–had hoped–he’d forgotten. For a few moments there the loss of Riia, the silence that was his brother’s illness…. They had been filled with the life and beauty that was her.
It was more than he’d been prepared to handle. Even knowing what he had about her, even knowing what his brother had spoken of so many times…. Val’d often talked about this. He’d known.
He hadn’t listened.
K.L. Schwengel, of My Random Muse, fearlessly leads the #WIPpet where writers post pieces of a draft (Work In Progress) that somehow relate with the date for fun and discussion. Feel free to comment and visit other #WIPpeteers here
. We love company.
Also, it’s time again for a…
It’s a new Round of Words here in ROW80 land, so there’s not much to post. For once I’m starting the round on target with sponsor post already made… oh. except that I didn’t post any goals yet. Not that I have any yet… I suppose I should take a moment to think of those. And since it’s summer, and I know I’m going to be away from my computer a lot, how about something light and refreshing?
Round 3 ROW80 goals:
- write my five sentences a day;
- read something for pleasure;
- get fresh air and exercise some daily;
- spend quality time with friends and family;
- type in/edit my JuNoWriMo notebooks
Pretty simple stuff. I have other things going on too, of course. We all do. I have some serious fall preparations to make. When fall comes, I’ll be teaching two classes at my son’s school and starting school to finish my degree as well. Going for my Master’s in Educational Psychology is going to give me lots of opportunities to improve my writing, but that means I need to work on building a habit of writing daily again (I dropped off during my bout of depression).
Though I like to poke too
We also have a bunch of travel and Lookens Peepins to do this summer. The hubby and I agreed… it’s time for us to spend some more time on US (even if that means staying home and re-arraigning the furniture). In fact, I have a hot date with the Leader of the Opposition Party soon, so it’s time to end this post.
