Quiet

I kept watching for emails out of the corner of my eye as I went about my daily duties. I said to myself - "Damn, things are quite today."

"That's because you didn't put up a post, dummy", said the little voice in my head.

Oh.

*crickets* (Momisodes' crickets came by to provide sound effects)

*blink*

It is so quiet in here. All I hear is my echo.

I guess that's what I get for getting so wrapped up in Sarah's story last night. The good part of that is I got this great scene done that .... I can't tell you that. Not yet. But I will.

Just caught up on your last few posts and I'm looking forward to more of Sarah.

Those darn crickets have been at my house, too.

Being caught up in writing not such a bad thing, though. Keep it coming!

Momisodes said...

LOL! Those crickets are over at my place too often. Glad they had a chance to pay you a visit :)

I can't wait to read Sarah's story.

I have a swarm crickets at my place too, but it is a comforting familiar song.

Can't wait for more of Sarah.

I hate it when I do that. I sit and wonder if the crickets are because the post stinks and it turns out there's no post. :)
