This week has been pretty good. I am nearly finished collecting themes for my music project (just 18 to go). I’ve also made good progress on my clarinet quartet piece.
I was not able to start working on that new revision stage for The Wolf & the Bear, but I did acquire the items needed to do it. I also was able to finish another flash fiction.
This week’s excerpt is from that flash fiction. I’m just giving you the opening, and I hope you enjoy it!
Daniel hoisted himself up over the windowsill of the kitchen window and crawled through. It had taken about 15 minutes to get the screen off, but the effort was worth it.
He crawled over the counter and dropped lightly to the floor, then padded softly to the door.
Sam and Jake were still standing under the window when he opened the door. “You guys!” he hissed. “Get over here!”
The trio made their way through the kitchen into the living room. It was well-appointed and looked lived-in. There were framed photographs on the mantel and the walls, of a pretty woman with long brown hair and a little boy with bright blue eyes.
“This is just a normal living room,” Daniel said. “We should just go. Peter saw us go in, we won the bet.”
Sam shook his head. “No way!” he replied. “He said to get a head, so we’re getting a head!”
A head?!? What are these boys doing? Where are they?
You’ll have to wait and read the finished story to find out.
