I'm still waiting for my Genesis score sheets, and if you've entered before perhaps you can understand. (Image: take your pick)
My schedule is still overflowing, leaving me scarcely room to breathe let alone write, and sometimes I fear I'll never finish this redraft let alone write another novel. But then I remember that I am spreading my reach like roots through the soil of cyberspace--through COTT and the Blog Alliance, ACFW, and guest posts on The Write Conversation, Circle of Friends, and now RT--and I praise God that He's got my course laid out for me already. The edits may be coming in 10-minute bursts but the relationship-building is laying a foundation for a writing career that I will most certainly need to stand upon when my time of publication finally comes.
That is why I was inspired to start the Social Media Mondays, by the way, and next week we'll be getting to know Becki Reiser. Like Donna, I met her at the conference and now keep in touch with her mostly through facebook. I hope you'll make a point to drop by and say "hello" on Monday.
With my personal news and updates out of the way, I thought everyone might be up for another Story Improv this week! This time I will leave it open longer. The plan is to post the complete story tomorrow evening by about 7pm PST.
Here's your opening line:
