Yes, it’s the weekend, and yes, I’m WRITING!!! *snoopy dance*
Two of the monsters have birthday parties today. The first is at Incredible Pizza, a “Chuck E Cheese” sort of nightmare place with games. That Man didn’t want to leave Littlest Monster there by herself for her party, and at the same time wanted to do something special with Middle Monster since she’s feeling left out today because she wasn’t invited to any parties, so he took them ALL with him.
Leaving me at home. Oh, joy, rapture. Two whole hours (at least) of peace and quiet!
So I’m writing the new scene in Quinn’s POV, 647 words so far. Meanwhile, thank God for the internet. I’ve looked up city maps for San Marcos, Round Rock, and Waco TX so far, and found exactly what I needed. I’ve also used MapQuest to get driving times up I35 from Laredo. The bad guys are less than two hours away from the big D, Quinn’s hometown, and he’s getting ready to stumble upon some bad, bad things on the Brazos River….
Up to 1179 words but I’m not finished with the scene. I ended up at a zoo and I’m waiting for the bad guys to make an appearance. They’re there — I just don’t know when they’re going to jump out. I think they’ll scare me as badly as Quinn.
Heading into the kitchen to start chili for dinner. No sign of the monsters or That Man yet.
Finished the scene at 2571 words. Even got in a few static traits, which tickles me to no end. Of course the bad guy got away — it’s way too early in the story for anything less than failure by the good guys!
