I’ve settled into this semester’s new swing and can relax a little now that I’ve heard from my Texan friends (all of whom have been very lucky). So now I hope I can get myself writing more. I’m noodling with Chuck Wendig’s flash fic challenge this week and of course, I’m getting back to These Haunted Hills.
I’ll be sharing more of that today. I’m glad that Brendan’s still close relationship with his ex seems to be working for people. I was a bit surprised that enjoying Stephen King’s books equated to being morbid by nature which is definitely not what I’m going for so I’ll have to think on that, so thank you.
For today’s snippet I’m skipping to the end of their conversation (you’ll miss her teasing him about getting Josh to do a tick exam). It’s a few lines over to complete the passage but I think I’ll be forgiven for that.

“I worried though when you said you were going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere.”
“The hotel is in the woods. I know what you’re thinking but you don’t have to worry.” Last night that would have been a lie, maybe it still was, but after meeting Josh, he honestly felt the mountain roll off his chest. The old familiar energy he used to feel when writing ebbed back in through the cracks in his armor.
