I just spent the last half-hour or so sitting cross-legged on the step to the back porch, hunched over and scribbling away while the dog stared at me silently begging for treats before she would eat her regular food. My feet are asleep, my back hurts and I’m sure the half light of the porch didn’t help my eyes, but Lillian hasn’t woken up yet and what I thought would only be 5 minutes worth has turned into nearly 2 pages and the end of what has been a slog recently!*
Kelly & Co. are just a short driveway away from conversation I’ve been looking forward to since I discovered it in the outline, and from there, to paraphrase Disney’s Aladdin‘s Jafar, ‘things will be unravelling fast!’
The pins and needles are worth it. The pins and needles are worth it. The pins and needles are worth it . . .
* I hope.
