Two Fer Tuesday

It is two line Tuesday time again (cue awesome game show music!). I actually wrote about a page and a half this week. How sad is that? I’m excited over a page and a half. I’ve been so busy with work and adoption classes the last two months, I haven’t written anything, and I’m suffering for it. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I’m not able to do something creative (write, play music) I start having weird dreams that progress into nightmares that progress into ‘Crystal hasn’t slept in two weeks and is exhibiting signs of psychosis.’ But, I digress. Right now, I am reading Lora Leigh’s (I wanna be her when I grow up…) Dangerous Games. Here are two wonderful sentences from the book:

There were no words – there was no need for them. As he consumed her kiss, he was consumed in return.

And (drum roll please!) two lines that although not so great right now, actually came out of my head and onto paper – imagine that – me getting to write.

Kellen the Sadist barked out the order and Mariska punched at his left glove, missed and hit him in the stomach. Her wrapped fist met his abdomen with a satisfying smack, but other than a whoosh of air, he didn’t seem to notice.

For more Two Line Tuesday head over and check out the amazing Women of Mystery.

I had one of those weeks, too, Crystal. I'd be thrilled with a page and a half. I owe about 4 to my group.

You do sound busy, but it sounds like an excited busy.
I understand. Lack of a creative outlet makes me weirder than usual.
I'm intrigued by your sentences.

Three sheers for getting words on the page. By they way, what do you got going Friday morning? Would that be a good time to get that tour? Is Thursday better? Email me.

Interesting sentences, Crystal. I can see the romance building in this nice round of foreplay.

Sometimes being too busy to write might seem a concern, but when you do get down to write even a few words the creativity is there waiting to bust out.
