Library Day

August 25th, 2007 by Jodi

Thanks to my wonderful partner, I am having a library day. Sometimes I just need to get out of the house, away from the distractions of cats, the TV, the mess on my desk (and my new iPhone!!) and all the projects that need doing and come to the library where I can (ostensibly) work uninterrupted.

However, my laptop has discovered that my library has WiFi. This is not good. ;-)

But look! I’ve been here about an hour and a half and I’ve written over a thousand words. Here’s a snip, just for fun. This is from the first chapter of a piece I am writing about the joys of role-play for the Games People Play line at Torquere Press.

Matt had been watching the guy, Erik, at the other end of the bar for a long while. Even from a distance Matt was drawn in by Erik’s easy smile and the way that he moved, playing with his glass or turning on his bar stool to talk to someone. Erik had blond hair, and every so often he’d run his fingers through it, and the stubborn bangs would fall right back into his eyes. He wore a pair of studious-looking glasses with metal frames and they would slide down his nose now and then. The way that Erik pushed them back up with one finger in mid-conversation seemed almost absent-minded, like he didn’t even realize he was doing it.

And now I shut off the WiFi and get back to work!

Quote of the Moment

I once had a garden filled with flowers that grew only on dark thoughts but they need constant attention and one day I decided I had better things to do.
