Ciao, amici! So, yes, I’ve been largely AWOL from blogging, except for hosting friends. And yes, I promised I’d be better about that.
And yes, I failed miserably at that promise.
I honestly don’t know how you all do everything you do. Blogging and social media and working and family and reading and reviewing and social lives. Well, social lives probably took a hit this year. But all the other stuff. I work roughly twelve hours a day. My brain is fried the other twelve hours. I don’t have much time for anything past family obligations after that. You all need to tell me your secrets.
If I want to interact with you guys more often, it’s got to be in short bursts, and Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are out. Weekends, too. That leaves Tuesdays and Thursdays. I thought I’d try this feature out. I used to have a WIP Wednesday, but Wednesdays don’t work for me, so I’m shifting. We’ll see how it goes.
I toyed with two sentences and two paragraphs. Neither is much, but obviously paragraphs give me more to play with. Today, I went with paragraphs. We’ll see if that’s enough to make you wonder. Let me know if it does. Or doesn’t. I’m open to adjusting things. This blog is as much about you as it is me. Even more, really.
Here we go with the inaugural excerpt for 2-Paragraph Tuesday:
“Where? Another dry lake? I see no canyons, grand or otherwise. No rivers in need of damming. All the natural wonders and natural resources are so far behind us, they’re in different states, and the only thing in Nevada bringing in any money are the casinos, which coincidentally, we’re also driving away from. So what, I ask you, is the government so interested in out here?”
But Santoro didn’t answer him this time. He merely kept driving toward destinations unknown.
Those two paragraphs are from the opening chapter of a surprise I’ll be releasing soon. More about that will be coming shortly. For now, I’m just interested in knowing if that interested you.
Thanks for reading. Saluti!
