Mind Fire Rewrite:
Yay! Exciting! After seeing what pitiful progress I made last month, I’m now three days into a fast-draft session (okay, fast-rewrite?) and with my goal of at least 1,000 words a day I’m getting serious. I should be close to or DONE by the end of the month! Then tweaking and critiquing! Eeeek!
This isn’t really a teaser…more of a snippet, but:
“Addy? You okay?”
The voice barely reached her. His thoughts were inside hers – her consciousness was flooded. She saw herself, the library, and fire..? Her breathing shallowed.
And then, she knew.
Addy clutched her chest and gasped. Everything went dark.
“That way,” she said, pointing west.

I have a crucial bit of information I need to expose in the middle of my book… but I can’t decide when to give it away! MC is mad at her (not quite) boyfriend because he just acted like a complete asshole in the last chapter…but he had a good reason. I need her to find that reason out. Problem is, something is about to happen in another chapter or two to raise the stakes to life/death (directly involving the person BF was an asshole to). Originally, MC found out about his reasoning right after the stakes went up. But that might be too much going on then, and not enough of a carrot dangling now… does this make any sense? Agh!
Snippet for a Saturday!
“Hey! Sorry, I was practically naked when you got here!” Rhiannon flitted down the staircase like one of the dragonflies embroidered on her gown.
Even Addy did a double-take as she approached. The delicate silk clung to the redhead’s body, moving in all kinds of distracting ways. Her hair was piled high. Duncan inclined toward her and Addy’s stomach churned. She slammed the front door.
“I’ll be in the kitchen.”
