I was nervously anticipating plugging away through a plot I didn't like for a book I wasn't sure I wanted to write. Then at a bible study I have on Sunday nights this opening paragraph popped into my head.
I just did what any first time caterer who had foolishly made the promise that she didn’t have to be paid until she had finished the job would do; what fool made that promise, oh wait that’s right…..me! I propped the body back up and slowly backed out of the walk in refrigerator. Shutting the door firmly behind me, I set the food down on the counter and took a generous swig from the cooking sherry bottle. A few more hours wouldn’t make that much difference of a difference to him, right?
What are you talking about? I was to paying excellent attention to the bible study.....
I once again have no plot, which might be a problem considering the nature of the mystery genre, but when have I ever let a silly thing like no plot get in my way?
All of that to say, like many of my blogging peeps I may not be around a whole lot this month. I've got a mystery to solve! To monitor my progress click on the NaNoWriMo graphic above my picture at the top of the page. Because I know you'll all haunt it, eagerly anticipating my word count tallies for each day!
I managed to resist the swag last year, but this year I could no longer stand it and ordered something. What can I say? (Besides, please ignore the rather scary looking male model in the picture, but that almost goes with saying!!) ;-)
