Not Everybody Loves Parfaits

Despite what Donkey and my husband say, not everybody loves parfaits.

Layers, on the other hand, layers are good.

That’s my excuse for running behind on my self-imposed schedule.

Today, I’m supposed to be embarking on the actual writing portion of my work-in-progress and what am I doing? Layering. Plotting. Scheming. Plaguing my characters with Murphy’s Law. Tripping them up at every turn. Shifting misunderstandings into truly conflicting wants and desires. Even yanking away someone’s villainhood and gifting him with ongoing main supporting character status instead, because he’s agreed {glaring a warning at his character notes in Scrivener} to not shoot for main character status going forward.

While he sounds convincing I’m not 100% sure of his sincerity — behind me is a whiteboard on which lurks a triangle where he’s one of the three points.

It adds layers, though, so I’ll take my chances.

Becca loves (in no particular order, ok, the husband comes first, probably) triking, Jeeping, her Spinone, her husband, and his sooper-dooper cutie-patootie of a mutt. The universe presented an opportunity on a platter and, not being one to deny the universe, she’s now taking the chance to chase a dream by transforming from accidental geek to intentional writer.

Now time for the shameless plugs. Please see also her site with her husband about their motorcycle (and some Jeeping) travels, Chasing Blue Sky, and Becca’s site as a Real Estate Broker in Colorado, SpinOne Group.
