What’s a normal dinner?

What’s a normal dinner?

It’s not often I do nothing, but today I almost took the day off. Now I feel bad that I didn’t accomplish more. If it had not been for the trip to Walmart for groceries, I wouldn’t have left the house.

I could not get warm all day even though the temps were in the 60’s. I think it was because I wasn’t up and moving around as usual.

H taught music lessons at the local music store from nine to three and didn’t even have a break for lunch, so I spent most of the morning procrastinating.

Before I left to wander the aisles of the grocery store, I had an unexpected request from a beta reader to read my first draft of Avoiding The Tilt. I was thrilled. Let’s hope he doesn’t tear it to pieces. I’m interested in seeing a man’s perspective on this story.

Finding beta readers has proven harder than I thought. If you are interested, contact me at knowles.elle@gmail.com.

Later this afternoon, after I made H a quick sandwich and insisted I did not want to go ride bikes or go see a movie, I fell asleep on the sofa. I dreamed I asked H if he wanted me to cook something for dinner. He replied, “No. Let’s have something normal like a banana.”

That didn’t happen. We had taco bread and cupcakes from Publix. I would have been happy with that banana.

WANTED – Beta Readers

WANTED – Beta Readers

As you know, if you keep up with my blog, I’ve recently finished my first draft of Avoiding The Tilt and posted a preview chapter here. It’s a humorous fiction book, (65,000 words) so if you need a laugh or two this one’s for you.

Now I need some good reliable beta readers. Preferably someone who will critique the story, point out any discrepancies in the story line, too much dribble, out of order chapters, etc. You know the drill.

Here’s your chance to read the full story ahead of the game. If you are interested in beta reading or know of a reliable beta reader, please comment below with your email address or email me at knowles.elle@gmail.com

My kids and other family members don’t count because they have to be nice. Hope to hear from you.
