Monday Morning Coffee…

Leave a comment

Good morning! Did the weekend go way too fast for anyone else? It was as though I blinked and it was over. As I sat last night, trying to get it into my head that it was over, I realized that I need to slow down and take each moment and handle with care.

I’m on my second cup of coffee, seeing another one in my near future. Also, needing to write before I go to my office, but trying to get out of the Monday morning fog with caffeine and social media.

This weekend I wrote over 8000 words between Saturday and Sunday, which is impressive for a working weekend. I had to work in my accounting office Saturday and had Church yesterday, but managed to beat my weekend goal.

I’ve been working on my newest series, ‘Sky Ridge’. It’s been coming into my brain faster than my fingers can type, which is a great thing. Since it’s been flowing well, I’ve pushed it ahead of another work in progress so as not to lose focus. Here’s a little tidbit of some of the writing from yesterday:

“Joy, I know this is all new to you, but I want you to know that I’ll keep you safe and never hurt you.” He reached out and found her hand, linking their fingers. “I promise you that as long as there is breath in my body, you’ll never fear anything, especially me.”
Joy turned her head to see him looking at her. “Thank you, Nash.” For the first time since she’d found out they were to be wed, her heart skipped a beat. Why she didn’t know.
Nash closed his eyes, knowing he’d made the right decision. One day they’d share more than holding hands, but he was satisfied with just being near her. As he lay there, he could tell she was holding her breath, which made him grin. “Joy, just breathe.”
She took a deep breath, sighing a little. “Nash, can I ask you something?”
“Yes.”
“How do you like your eggs?”
Nash laughed, the sound rumbling in the quiet room. “How do I like my eggs? You’re asking me at this moment, how I like my eggs.”
Joy knew she was blushing to the roots of her hair. “I just want to do things right. So, I was thinking about breakfast.”
Nash rolled to his side to look at her. Moonlight streamed in, setting her face in a mystic glow. “Joy, please relax. I made a promise to you that we’d take things slow. So, just relax and go to sleep.”
“OK.” Joy rolled to face away from Nash, which helped to calm her more. For some reason, his nearness bothered her more than she’d imagined.

This is, of course, an unedited excerpt, but it’s a special moment between Nash and Joy. I know you’ll love their story as it moves along the three book series.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
