We made it to “back on track”. 94 pages, which is just enough to finish up by Monday if I do 3 pages per day. I’d rather “finish” Script Frenzy tonight, so I can relax a bit tomorrow and get back to LIQUID FIRE. Let’s see what we can do to do that.
Oh, right, excerpts. I can’t do latest excerpts as we’ve moved past the first twist of the story. Here’s a bit from a bit further back:
Jeremiah arrives moments after Georgiana, who’s wearing a slit-front traveling dress over boots and pants and has a leather satchel. She’s discreetly checking a deranger.
Well, Jeremiah, have you everything you need?
She dry-fires the deranger, while Jeremiah checks a first aid kit she keeps in her left pocket.
Whether I’m to stab or be stabbed for the queen, I’m ready.
Is that a literal or metaphorical stabbing you’re hoping for?
Patrick arrives wearing an aerograph pack, not unlike a cross between a television and a World War II field radio.
Oh, gentlewomen, please.
You’ve quite taken to that. I should give it to you.
Yes, you should. Check your pack?
Check your pack, wind your braces, buckle your chin-strap.
UPDATE: Taking a break at 96 pages. That should be enough for tonight, and I’ve just about closed down the Coffee Society … but if I get more beans and vinegar, who knows?
