Words on a Wednesday – The Third Alternative

I’m back to working on It Came To Tranquility. I was a little worried that I would have to refresh my memory on a few points, but I fell back into the plot very easily.

Words on a Wednesday: In Which Dr. Dave has a problem.

Another short excerpt from the book. Things are going well, but I think that I may need to sit down and plot out a map of the old resort and town just so that I don’t run into the same problem that I had with Bride of Tranquility of moving walls and rooms.

Words on a Wednesday: In Which We Meet Jodi

As promised, I’m back to posting excerpts of my work in progress, It Came to Tranquility. This will be the third book in the Tranquility series.  This bit of the story is not edited, so it may not make it into the final draft, or it may exist in a different form. This is also […]

Words on a Wednesday: In which my heroine shows chutzpah.

Just for the record? The action in this scene all takes place at this Central Park location: This statue is about 11 foot tall. The cap of the largest toadstool is about waist high on an adult. My husband hasn’t had time to edit this draft yet. So all grammar mistakes are mine. On with […]

Words on a Wednesday: Take the Show on the Road

Here’s another snippit of the story that I’m working on:

Words of Lateness

Not really words on a Wednesday, because I’m running about a day behind, but it has been a few weeks since I’ve posted a bit of the WIP. I’m making major headway on the project, though.
