A Day to Talk About Anything I Want

The pressure’s on. What do I truly want to talk about that I haven’t already said this week? Hmm. Let me think. *taps index finger on chin*.

I’ve got nothing, so how about I share a couple of lines of my new WIP? The WIP with no name – which is nothing like A Horse with No Name by America.

Anyway, this story takes place in Venice and here are two little snippets.

(1) “I’m in a foreign country and I’ve just told someone I don’t know that I’m a small town girl alone in a city and even told you where I’m going. God, I’m an idiot.” Charlotte would’ve slapped herself in the forehead if her hands hadn’t been full. What a dolt she was. Now what was she going to do?
“Don’t be a ninny. Come on. I’m harmless.”

(2) “I think a home-made sausage and pepper stromboli would be perfect. Do you like that?”
“I’m willing to try especially if you’re going to cook it for me.”
“I didn’t say it was going to be cooked in my home, did I?”

    That “home-cooking” thing sounds like some stunt I’d pull. I’d actually have to be home in order to cook. Charlotte sounds like she’s lots of fun, someone I’d like to hang out with. Sounds like you’ve got another winner on your hands.

    That first snip is a perfect set-up for nearly any way you’re taking this WIP — whether comedy, suspense, or romance.
    And, BTW, the free space day is a terrific time to highlight our wares, whether something we’re currently writing or one we’re currently editing for publication.
    I’m thinking of doing the latter for Hound Day this week.

    Jillian,Italy…need you say more? Let me know what you have a title; I’ll find time for this one ,fast!
    Should I bother to ask if you did
    ‘oral research’ on the sausage and pepper stromboli???
    (I smell a small restaurant or nonna’s house.)
    FYI…I asked around about what I should call made-from-scratch foods in my bakery/restaurant, since ‘homemade’ was not exactly fitting…I was told by the customers that ‘homemade’ was what they wanted to hear; it said it all to them and was accurate enough.
    I hope you all drop in on Friday. I think you’ll be pleased with what I have planned; it’s about you.
