Good morning! Welcome to this writer’s workspace. Here’s what’s happening liiiiiiiiiiiiiive at Miranda’s desk:
What I’m working on: Well, first off, my “desk” for the week is a cushioned, wicker couch on the porch by the pool. I’m on vacation in Arizona for the week with my family. No slacking for me, though. I’ve got a novel outline to revise after a great writing retreat in Las Vegas. I’m also working on a short story about a cat living in a strip club during the zombie apocalypse. My first stab at humorous horror…we shall see.
Snippet from the screen: “Aromas of stale beer and the oily sweat of titillated men lay over the cheap dark furniture like damp sheets. Above this, El Rey detected a new smell, sharp and acrid. The smell of fear. It wafted in through the door, which hung on its hinges.”
On my iTunes: no iTunes for me today; just the sound of the breeze through the cactus and sagebrush.
Keeping me company: my 2 1/2 year old niece has taken the place of Mr. Ramses in the “keeping me from my work” category. She keeps scampering over from the pool and saying: “Auntie Mimi, you should be swimming.” She’s probably right.
A little procrastination never hurt anyone: Being on vacation, I can hardly argue with this sentiment…but, I can’t seem to muster the energy to dig up interesting links to share. You’re on your own, folks!
