Teaser Tuesday!

Added a good 3k to TC this past week. Don't know how that happened, since I was going to quit writing for a while. My characters are so annoying sometimes. I even wrote a query letter yesterday within five minutes. What's wrong with me? Anyway, here's a snippet from TC (Logan's POV):



*SNIP*

  8. I agree with everyone else. Very sad. But it also makes me wonder what happened to the MC and the choices he made, and if there were ultimately be some reconciliation. Glad to hear you're still writing.

  10. Oh my goodness, I love the juxtaposition here of the kid playing football and then him using. And then him thinking about all the things they lost because of this--I'm heartbroken for both the MC and the dad.
