Another visit to my blog. I’m going to try to start blogging again rather than spending all the time I spend on FB. I want to get serious about writing again. Well, I want to get serious about all sorts of aspects of my life, but it’s best to start small, then build. Uh, I totally hacked that from a line Methos speaks to Kronos in “Highlander.” Though, I’d say it’s pretty cliche anyway.
Instead of rushing out the door to get to work today, I’ve finally put the words to the scene I’ve had in my head for the last few days. It has nothing to do with a new story, but it’s a good way to start getting back to writing. The scene involves characters from my first novel. It’s Jesse going back to NYC after the towers fell to see Lena. He watches her and his daughter playing in the dog park by the apartment building they shared; he wants to see her. He called her on the day the towers fell and they spoke briefly, but it was obvious she didn’t want to talk to him. Still, he came to NYC a few weeks later with the hope to reconcile.
Anyway, in the end he doesn’t see her (I have to keep the universe in order.) because her brother Gabe is there and convinces him not to see Lena, but it will explain the comment he makes in the future that he did come back to see her. When I’m done, I’ll post the scene. Not that anyone reads this blog these days, but if I start getting active on fiction forums I belong to, it will be nice to have an archive of scenes and snippets related to my novels and WIP that may or may not make it into the stories.
