“The Rustler” is really moving along, now that I’ve been able to settle down and write!
It’s a little cloudy today, but the pool is warm as bathwater–I dipped a toe in this morning–so I’ll probably swim later. Provided, of course, that there is no lightning.
I worked all day yesterday, inside the house, on my laptop. Getting to know Wyatt (Rowdy’s brother) and Sarah, is a real kick. Sarah, it turns out, has to tell so many lies to support a certain secret that she writes them in a ledger book, trying to keep her story straight. Things are heating up in Stone Creek, because Wyatt decided, practically at the moment he first saw Sarah, that he’s going to marry her.
I spent the whole weekend reading “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. Great book–I couldn’t put it down. Next on the reading pile is Nora Roberts’ new hardcover–the name of it escapes me at the moment–but it’s about a female hostage negotiator. You can always count on Nora for a good story. I usually read nonfiction–mostly American history, centered on the Revolution and the Civil War–but I’m going to read more novels from now on. It’s like an inner vacation.
Well, I’d best wrap this up and get on in there. Sarah and Wyatt are ready to roll, and I want to know what’s going to happen to them today!
