Remember in my last post when I said in a perfect world I would have Scars of the Past finished by the end of March? Yeah, that was funny, wasn’t it? It’s not my fault though; the story insists on being longer than I originally intended. You know how that goes.
I’m working on a scene now that’s actually quite relevant to something that’s been all over the news these days. Jacob and James–a former slave and his ex-lover/former owner’s son, respectively–are having a chat about the past. It’s not an easy conversation, but it needed to happen. I think it’s a shame that some people feel like we should avoid the hard talks, and that everyone would be better served if we just glossed over terrible things from long ago or pretended that they didn’t happen at all. Come on, humans. If these two vampires can talk about this stuff and they were there, then we can talk about it too, right?
Anywho, I had a great vacation. It was really cold for one day (which is not typical for Florida) then really hot the rest of the time I was there (which is absolutely typical for Florida) and I remembered how to be lazy. It was glorious.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you kick ass moms out there, whether your child/children have skin, fur, or feathers. Happy Sunday to the rest of you. 🙂
