I let hubby peek....


I don't normally do this...Nobody sees a work in progress...Nobody. The kids plot as I have mentioned before and hubby keeps a safe distance trying not to interrupt the good writing Juju I have going on. He is simply not a reader and is not worried about what I am writing though he encourages me in every way shape and form. He is my cheerleader...without the pompoms and short shirt thank you very much.


Today was different...it was an odd feeling. I paced the floors of the store and I allowed him a first glimpse into my story. I had previously wrote 54 pages of what turns out to be...nothing but a back story. I am now on "page 2". Ugh!!! It sounds so dreary...only page 2. I still have the 54 previous pages that are sitting quietly in my notebook.


So...what is the verdict?!?! I anxiously waited to hear what he thought. he said he was "hooked" from the beginning.

Woo Hoo! Keep writing. It sounds like you're off to a good start. I always love and opening paragraph that has that little bit of intrigue in it.

I am sure that will be the same for all who venture to read your work.
