A WIP and the ULE

For the last two weeks, I’ve been working on my new writing project every spare moment I get. The work-in-progress (WIP–and, dare I say, novel-to-be?) is another fantasy romance inspired by Arthurian legend. What is it with me and this theme? Anyway, it’s always exciting when the words want to flow. Too bad life, and other responsibilities, get in the way.

To that end, I wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be at the Universal Light Expo in Columbus, Ohio this Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14. I will be in booth 713, where I will be giving private readings and selling all of my books. This expo is enormous, and there are tons of great people, products, lectures, and energy for everyone to enjoy. If you’re in the Columbus area, stop by and spend some time with us. On Sunday at 11 am, you can even come and see me demonstrating mediumship with several other wonderful light workers.

These expos, while fun and exciting, always wear me out. But I hope to get back to writing bright and early on Monday!

Blessings to all!

Quick 777 Post

My Soul Mate sister, author Jamie Brazil, tagged me in her post today, so I thought I’d complete my task quickly. And it IS fun, so why not?

Here are the rules:

Go to page 77 of your current work in progress.

Scroll down 7 lines.

Paste the next 7 sentences into your blog.

Then tag 7 more authors to carry forth the 7’s game (add their links, and don’t forget to link to the person who tagged you… also let everyone know).

Well, my current Work In Progress doesn’t yet have 77 pages. So I will go back to the novel I wrote several years ago that needs a major overhaul.  This is a conversation between Kel, the protagonist, and Caddy, the girl he falls for. If you’re a theatre person, you’ll recognize that they are discussing audition songs.

Now I did smile, but it probably appeared to be more of a sneer.  “I told you, I don’t like Webber.  He’s a hack, too.”

“Then what would you sing instead?”

Les Miserables,” I answered immediately.  “Fantastic music.”

Empty Chairs at Empty Tables, I suppose.  Or maybe something of Valjean’s?”

I blew a smoke ring, wondering if she remembered our conversation from the day before.  Her eyes followed it, smoldering like boiling chocolate.  “No.  Javert.  Stars.”

“Javert?  He’s the villain.”

I paused dramatically and carefully snuffed out my cigarette in the ashtray by the couch.  I smiled my best dazzler.  “I find that villains are infinitely more interesting to play.”

All right. That’s more than 7 lines. But I couldn’t just end it after Empty Chairs at Empty Tables. 🙂

I do like this story quite a bit. I love the characters. It’s so Kel to call Andrew Lloyd Webber, author of such huge shows as Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Phantom of the Opera, a hack! I hope to someday revisit Kel’s world so everyone can meet him. We’ll see what happens.

So that means I need to tag 7 more authors to play this game. OK! Here are my 7:
My friend and editor, the divine Char Chaffin.
My friend Lee Allen Howard.
And my Soul Mate sisters Shelly Bell, Tracy Hewitt Meyer, Raven Raye, Katy Lee, and Julia Bade. Go check out their blogs! Read their stuff! Support writing!
Thanks, everyone, for joining in the 777 fun today! 🙂
