Is it seriously the end of January (almost)?
Is my daughter actually 6 months?
Am I seriously done with my first MS?
Am I actually 30 now??
I should stop now. I’m freaking myself out.
Here’s my excerpt today for you. From my 2nd MS. Today is Jan 27th so I have 27
paragraphs I mean, sentences I mean, words for you. Actually, I have 27 x 3. So 81 words. This gives you a tiny glimpse of the tension in the scene.
Context: Joel, Lacey, Jessica, and her boyfriend are at a work-related Halloween house party. Some other (stupid) co-worker is dancing with Jessica. Joel is watching them from a distance.
As he danced, smiling a goofy college-boy, I’m-so-lucky grin, Joel folded his arms over his chest, surprised to find jealousy pinging in the pit of his stomach—but he knew better than to dance with her, or even talk to her for that matter.
As if on cue—he spotted Chris out of the corner of his eye—his hulking figure would be hard to miss with a classic bright green Joker-style wig and a purple suit to boot.

Quick shout out favor to my WIPpet group! (or anyone else really).
I need to change Jessica’s name 😦 Sad day. But the 2nd MS has THREE people whose names start with J. I am unfortunately choosing Jessica’s to change. I would really appreciate any suggestions. I know many have suggested picking a name that has meaning. SO I would be looking for something that means “overcomer” perhaps.
Character Description: Jessica is 5’11, slim athletic build, with tan skin and light brown hair and light brown eyes. She’s biracial, half African American and half white.
Thank you friends! Until next week 🙂
