THE WRITING. . .Corresponded with readers via emails. What a blessing these women are to me. =) Posted a new discussion question for Desert Gift on the Facebook author page. Replies posted to the last one are beautiful. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sally-John-Books/355413061473Finished reading a novel, one in a series, criminal suspense genre. I skim the over-the-top violence and zero in on the relationships. Such excellent writing with the recurring characters. (Writers workshop by osmosis for me.) At the end of this book the author killed off one of the main characters, the husband of another main person. Not exactly a happy ending but a true ending; given the circumstances it had to happen.
THE DETAILS. . .This and that. Crossed a few things off the to-do list.
Biked with My Guy for dinner to the restaurant where we ate several meals in the days following the fire because it’s near the motel where we stayed. We’ve gotten to know a young waitress. Had not been there for perhaps six months. She was pregnant at that time; last night she wasn’t – we saw photos of her baby boy. Nice.
As we started to bike away, a woman reading the menu posted outside asked us about the food. We learned that she was from New York and her 19-year old in the car wanted steak before he shipped out to Afghanistan. Please pray for Eric and his family.
The two mama-son stories sort of twist your heart, don’t they?
