Inkshares editors have indicated a need to be more consistent with descriptive language throughout my story. I wrote this today and it makes me feel good so I wanted to share it with a little bit of chest pounding because whether it’s good or bad isn’t as important as that feeling that reminds me of why I enjoy writing. This paragraph occurs in a chapter after the inciting incident in MINE but before the 1st act turn. Plot points are important.
“Is it something I said?” He looks at me with implacable eyes and I feel judgment. Resentment. Not by him. Some other little fiend judges me this day. I shrink into myself while the light spool draws tighter toward gray grayer grayest with rain and more rain draining the world to a dark nothing the way mixing too many colors becomes an oozing brackish mud absorbing everything. Like Mount Vesuvius erupting its smothering volcanic ash leaving a hollow where once, for a mere moment, we occupied a space. Or maybe it’s seasonal affective disorder. “The court order hasn’t been lifted, has it?”

What’s up everyone! Just a reminder that tomorrow, Under The Rug officially releases. After cataloging to sites like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and GoodReads, ya’ll should be getting your copies by sometime toward the end of next week, depending on what zip code you’re in. Once again thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy Under The Rug as much as I enjoyed writing it. One other reminder—please make sure to update your address through your inkshares account so your copies don’t got to the wrong place. In case some of you have moved.
