Looking Back On The Week…

I can see big advances and some really nasty setbacks in a couple of areas.

There have been two BIG events this week!

Big Event #1:  Four chapters were written in one single day!  I was amazed and expecting my right hand to swell up and be impossible to use the next day, but it didn’t swell, and I was able to use it, just not to write – this, at least, was expected.

The murderer is planning his first murder.  Strangely, I feel almost like a proud mama with the way the planning sessions are coming out.  I’ve been calling this his ‘cherry murder’ because after this he isn’t going to be the same in any way.  He will have found his truest calling in life.

The catalyst for this murder was a death in the family – his baby sister was killed in a school shooting.  I could think of a lot of things that could throw him over the edge he was already on, but the only one that made sense was for Loraine to be killed in a shooting at her school because, sadly, it is a possibility of life today.  Was it Hemmingway that said something about ‘killing our darlings’?

Big Event #2:  Some wonderful friends of ours drove two hours to bring me a manual wheelchair to use while my power chair hopefully gets fixed.  They also brought BOOKS with them and left them for us to read **drool**, and chicken!  They brought us fried chicken!

I have been craving fried chicken for two weeks almost, and now, low and behold, we have fried chicken!  Yes, The Husband could make me fried chicken, or I could if I could reach the stove, but it has been hot.  Seriously hot, and I’ve not pushed much for hot or warm foods.  The cooler the better.

Thank you, Bill and Sharon, you made our entire weekend and just possibly the week with your visit!

Now to the power chair – it is a loaner from a company in Lexington I am still working with to get a new chair.  It is beginning to act up.  It goes dead at 49% power.  The control arm is going out.  The two big wheels are going flat, and the right front caster is completely frozen.  It doesn’t move.  Since there are things I need to do away from home, I needed a manual chair.  One of my nephews has agreed to be the engine.  Next week is one of those weeks when I need to be oot and aboot.

Hope your weekend is going great!

    Yes, isn’t it good when a character and his plans start to click in your head . . . and on the paper!
