Short Excerpt from Lost Memory Romance

Thought I’d share another short excerpt from “Lost Memory Romance”

Jason desperately wanted to say something.  To remind her that she had once stopped by this very station many years ago when he had been little more than a rookie.  She had been working on article for a school paper and had stopped by to see if she could interview a couple of the guys there.  He had happened to be on duty that day.  Jason could still remember the surprise evident in Brenda’s eyes when he opened the door.  He, as well as a couple of the other guys, had answered her questions and then he had given her a quick tour of the station including the bay with engines & trucks.  His breath quickened as he remembered helping her down from the engine.  How she had felt sliding down the length of his body.  For a moment they had stood there staring at each other.  A tell-tale blush on Brenda’s cheek had indicated that she had felt the contact every bit as much as he had.  Whether from embarrassment or to save face, Brenda had quickly gone back to her reason for stopping by in the first place and Jason, once he had discreetly readjusted himself, had done the same leaving the incident unmentioned.

#CampNaNoWriMo was a flop for me this year

Well looks like this year was a complete flop for me in regards to Camp NaNoWriMo…  Both in terms of my word count and in terms  blogposting about the event….  I won’t say it was a complete fail since a complete fail would mean not even giving it a try at all.  So I’ll give myself the benefit of the doubt of having at least made the attempt not only at joining said “camp” for the second year but in attempting an actual ongoing story….

I have managed to get up to 4,880 words.  Doubting very much  I’ll make to my goal of 12,000 words in the next couple days.

Here’s a short excerpt from the story:

Briana couldn’t help but notice that Greg was staring down at her with hooded eyes with a look that she had only ever seen guys give to other girls, never her.

“Greg??”

“I know it’s wrong but, Dammit, I want to kiss you.”

“Is that a bad thing?” Briana asked softly

“I’m afraid if I start, I won’t want to stop,” Greg responded with a sigh

“Maybe I wouldn’t want you to” Briana replied shyly.

#CampNaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 19 (and an apology)

  

Well I can tell you one thing!! – I’m definitely not in the winner circle here *sigh*.  Haven’t even managed to get to the 5k mark & my original goal was 20K (tho I did lower that to 15K (I believe).  I don’t even want to begin to make excuses (or even try)….  I failed, Plain and Simple – I failed.  Hell even failed at my goal to keep a more steady stream of my “Camp NaNo journey” posts.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: 2015, July 05-11

Don’t have a lot of time for this weeks Weekend Coffee Share  and I do apologize for jumping in and out like this.

What can I say about this week?  Smh – Not much really.  Feels like Camp NaNo has turned into a complete flop for me this year…. Oh it isn’t the camp – nothing wrong there that I’ve seen, but then I haven’t really been involved in using the resources to their full potential (hell I’ve done good just to manage to do any writing on my story) and sure isn’t my cabin-mates  (they  have been awesome)…  I should take a sec and introduce you to a couple of their blogs:

A Novel Journey

Writing Wings for You

I have managed to get in a total of 3,249 words on my story so far.  In many ways, I guess it’s coming along better than I had hoped – considering it’s my first time trying  for an actual story rather than just micro-type stories (or whatever you call them)….

Well back to work – Got plenty of things to work on: Planning a Mary Kay facebook party; Work on adding more product to some online shops; Get some writing done….  But first, I need seriously need to consider dinner.

Back In Her Life – A 2 Minute Write

“What’s Up??” Roger asked Molly a few minutes later when he was able to get a few minutes alone

“What do you mean, ‘What’s Up’ “? Molly asked giving him a sideways glance

“I don’t know….” Roger sighed, “You act like you can’t stand to see me or something.”

Molly let out a cleansing breath, “You totally disappear for months. No contact, no word on what’s going on…. Nothing…  And now you show back up in my life like nothings happened.”

“Molly, I’m…..” Roger started

“Dammit, Roger, I loved you.  I cared about you.”

Dammit, she hadn’t intended for that last part to slip out

#CampNanoWriMo 2015 – Day Nine and Exerpt

Ended up spending the better part of yesterday out running errands  and such.  Had planned to spend a couple minutes writing in the early morning (but then I also planned on trying to add some more product to my on-line shops for NancyPolkArtist….  Yeah, that didn’t go so well, neither one.  Ended up getting into a bunch of other little projects that needed doing  Talk about “squirrel” 😛

Since I’m not logging the dates of what I write when, I don’t know exactly what day I wrote this.  I know it wasn’t yesterday (pretty sure it wasn’t) – I do know that was the last bit I wrote for story from just a couple days ago…. It hasn’t been that long since I last wrote, just seems like it 😉

Jason sat next to Brenda, on the edge of the bed, wondering to himself why he felt the need to comfort her.  Why he had felt the need to stay involved when he could have just as easily walked away after transporting her to the hospital.  It had been a number of years since he had last seen her and no doubt her life was a lot different than from when he knew her during her college days.  The only thing that made any kind of logical sense to him was that he just couldn’t leave her to deal with everything on her own.  Especially when she had no memory of who she was.  He had connected with her on some level during the time in which she was being extricated.  Even though she had no idea who he was, Brenda had seemed to respond to his presence, more so than she had anyone else on scene.

I know this quite rough….  If you have any advice or pointers for me please let me know..  Constructive Criticism is appreciative as long as you play nice 🙂

OK time to get back to the gazillion things I’ve got going on – Writing, Online shops, Planning FB party for Mary Kay, Writing.

Wishing you all an Awesome day and may the Muse be with You.

#CampNanoWriMo 2015 – Day Seven

I really should be spending this time writing on my Camp NaNo project (let’s see where am I at now – 2,748,.  Not much headway since yesterday), but at the same time, I should be getting through this stack of crap…. errrr…. paperwork that is piled up on my desk.  Making  what I’m sure is a huge mistake of multi-tasking between writing this blog, going through paperwork, and catching up on the twitter & facebook notifications from yesterdays Nutty Day…..

Enough distractions and procrastinations…  Time to get my ass in gear and get to work, including some serious writing.

#CampNanoWriMo 2015 – Day Five

 

Afraid I’m not off to a really good start with Camp NaNo this year.  By the end of today I should be at, let’s see…..  3.225 words and I’m only at, ummmmm….  2,140 words.  That means that in order to reach my goal of 20,000 words on time (by the end of July) I would need to log 662 words (instead of the 645 that it originally was) and that’s if I write/type each and every day….  At the rate I’m going (an average of not quite 500 words/day) I’ll be finishing up in the middle of August.

I seriously need to get some major writing in to get caught up…. But then I also have to head out to a couple stores to do some shopping.  I should be able to get some writing time in when I get back home (at the expense of other things that need to get done around here as well – such is life, and my luck).

Best of Luck with Writing everyone (whether doing Camp NaNo or not) —  May the Muse be With You!!!!

Excerpt 2 from my “Lost Memory Romance” story for #CampNaNoWriMo

Excerpt 2 from “Lost Memory Romance”

Brenda felt as if she was in the middle of some sort of weird dream that bordered on a nightmare.  Everything seemed so surreal, so out of place.  She had woken up to find herself in a hospital room a nurse was standing next to the bed checking her vital signs.  A man that she only vaguely recognized from the accident was sitting in a chair next to the window.  The accident had been the last thing she could really remember…  Everything else before that was as if it had never existed.  The name that the man had used earlier seemed strange on her tongue…  as if it didn’t quite fit and yet it had a strangely familiar ring to it.
