Zombies, Rain and Random Lines

In case you're wondering, the season premier of The Walking Dead was well worth the wait. The ground work for future episodes looks good. Though, I was left wondering why, oh why, the group would allow their only doctor to go exploring the dark, zombie filled prison? That decision just had bad idea all over it.

This weekend went by in the blink of an eye. (They always do, don’t they?) The hubby and I were supposed to take some pictures. I need a new author pic—actually, I need an author pic--and we figured this time of year would provide a lovely, atmospheric background. Unfortunately, it poured rain all day yesterday, and that would have been too much atmosphere.

I did however get some writing done, and since I'm particularly pleased with how this story is flowing--at least for now--here's a random, unedited line. Happy Monday!

Kyle reached out for his pen and pad. His responses from his conversation with police earlier that morning seemed to glow from the top sheet. The detectives had been in again--third time since he'd been admitted--but his answers were always the same.
I don't know.
I don't remember.
I'm sorry.


  1. Oooooh, I love those lines! Leads me to believe Kyle's in the phyc. hospital. Awesome and looking forward to reading it. Also looking forward to your new author pic. Wouldn't it be cool to use an abandoned hospital as the background? We have one in a nearby town! No fooling! Rusty bars, broken windows and weathered doors. Ride around and see what you can find.
    And so happy the book's coming along for you. I'll be happy when my muse returns. He's been on vacation now for about a year! LOL!

  2. Thanks, Tere. You'll just have to wait for Kyle's story, but I think he'd my favorite so far. ;-)

    An abandonned hospital would be very cool. We've got a few ideas. And if this rain ever stops, we may get to try some.

    I had the same issue with my muse so I know how you feel. Give him a kick in the pants and get him moving.

  3. Cool taster, Dawn!

    Can't wait to see your author pic.

    *Waving* to Tere :)

  4. Thanks Monique. I'm glad you liked it.
