So, my streak of being ahead continues. The kids didn’t have school on Monday. We probably got a foot of snow(maybe more. I’m a terrible judge of that) Sunday night/Monday morning. The school actually put out the 2 hr delay Sunday night, and about an hour before the bus would come, we got the call that school was closed. The girl has been introduced to the raz-kids site at school, where they can read books & take quizzes on them and build robots(I think there are some games they can play as they read more)so she spent some of the day(and the past weekend) on my computer reading some of the books. At least I had my back stories to write(which I do by hand), so it didn’t interrupt my productivity too much. My CP had said she’d planned to get The Choice back to me by Sunday. Still not here, so I’m started my revisions on Stained by Ashes instead. Once I get that from her, I’ll set this aside to work on The Choice.
Before I get to my progress, I have another snippet from Scars and All. Easy math for this one. I have 4 paragraphs. Doren and Cassie had gone back to his place but got interrupted by his brother showing up and saying their other brother was on the way to the hospital. He still doesn’t know exactly what happened though.
His father spun on him. “Like you don’t know. If it wasn’t for you, he never would have gotten into racing.”
The words shocked him. His brother didn’t race. He helped him with the car, but he never got behind the wheel. His mother stepped up to them. “Joel, that’s enough,” her voice was soft, but it nearly broke. “Doren didn’t make him do this.”
“Do what?” Doren asked, but his voice sounded weak.
“Like you don’t know,” his father said again. “Don’t tell me you didn’t know he’s been racing on the streets. God, you’ve probably been encouraging it. Anything for a thrill, right, Doren?”
Doren and his father really need to have that talk soon(and they will). You can head over here to read others’ contributions. Or feel free to share your own snippet.
Anyway, I’m way ahead for this week. I’m typing this on Tuesday just past noon if that tells you anything.
