What's Happening Now?

It's that time again – time for our midweek update – a chance for characters to reveal their current whereabouts. In this way, authors can share what's happening within their stories by speaking through their characters' unique voices.

So, let's hear it, characters. It's time to share your joys, your woes, your dreams, or whatever else is on your mind – and hopefully, by revealing where you are in your story, you'll help inspire your authors to keep moving forward with theirs.

Remember, this is for characters only!

Oh dear. We haven't... um... moved much the past week.

Is it Wednesday already?

Dear Author, you had better get busy so that I have something to say!

Candy said...

My journey started out well as yesterday I drove up island and booked into a motel. But this morning I woke up feeling terrible. Must have been something I ate. I feel kinda helpless lying here all alone. Maybe a maid will come soon and at least open the blinds.

Olivia Harper said...

Marenya, don't feel too bad. It's been a long time since I've moved forward with my story. My author's too obsessed with her travel guide to worry about me and my family.

If we can be patient, I'm sure you can, too!

Nutmeg Cross said...

Candy, I'm just curious... how can you afford all these hotels and motels that you talk about? Did your aunt leave you a windfall?

'Cause I must admit, every now and again, it would be nice to sleep in a real bed - not that I mind the hay lofts that Indy and I often find ourselves in, but still, hay is ever so itchy.

Christine H said...

Well, Marenya, do consider that we were all snowed in together for the past week and it's awfully hard to get any writing done with the whole family underfoot - and competing for use of the computer.

I've taken another part-time job to earn that laptop. Hang in there!

Marenya said...

But there is absolutely no reason for you to waste so much time on those other things you seem to fritter away time with for ages.

I don't mean to complain, but it does make me wonder if we're truly important to you.

Marenya said...

Nutmeg, I despise straw! I hope you get a bed soon.

Candy, please take care of yourself. you never know what might happen if you are ill alone.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Thanks, Marenya! Indy and I are working on it.

Indigo Cypress said...

What's wrong with straw? It's better than the cold ground.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Leave it to you, Indy, to look on the bright side.

Marenya said...

A nice heather- or down-filled mattress is infinitely more comfortable, Indy. Perhaps we of the delicate sex are more sensitive to itchy fibers than you menfolk.

Faldur said...

Perhaps we of the "coarser" sex tire ourselves so much through our labors that we don't notice the difference when we finally lay down to sleep.

Candy said...

Hi Nutmeg,

Actually my Aunt had this trip all planned out, rooms booked and everything - before she walked off the back of the boat and killed herself. She also left a whole lot of traveler's cheques in my name and I can always contact her lawyer in California if I get stuck.
It's all weird and scary but I'm going to follow through, I don't know what else to do anyway. Nowhere to go back to, for sure.
I'm sorry you don't have a comfy bed -at least I have that. If we ever cross paths most of these rooms have twins and you're welcome to one, anytime.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Thanks, Candy - that's very generous of you! I'll keep your offer in mind.

Kaelin said...

I'm with Faldur. I don't really notice where I sleep.

Destiny bites. Plain and simple. Dmitri, Seline, and I are getting ready to walk right into a trap. The terrible thing about it is, we're pretty sure its a trap. Fun huh?

But, you know what? We can't not go. And, not just because I don't want to loose face in front of a bully, but because we feel pushed to go. Like if we don't go the world will break or something.

Maybe we should just turn on the author and hurt him. That's probably a good idea. At least we wouldn't have to spend the night in a creepy old mansion.

Nutmeg Cross said...

Ooh, but I love creepy old mansions, Omega!

I've sure seen my share of them while on my cross-country journey.

Aidan said...

I once had an adventure in a creepy old mansion. Demons attacked and I ended up getting abducted and held hostage for a year.

So for Pete's sake be careful!

Wynter said...

A lack of patience is what failed me in the end as a Paladin.

My author is doing critiques and beta reads on OTHER WRITERS novels.

Like, hello; I'm waiting here! And oh please don't change my name. Sharing a name with a famous video game heroine can't get us in trouble. Its just a name.

Mine.
