10 Jobs: #7

7. Interviewer.

“Where are you going?”

“To a movie.”

“Appropriate content?”

“I—I think so. Something with singing…dancing…”

“There’re no clowns in it, correct?”

“Clowns? I don’t—”

“Jake!” his sister snaps, running down the hall. “Leave him alone.” Sally links her arm through a guy who looks suspiciously too much like James Dean for Jake’s taste.

Jake smirks. “Hell, it’s your very first date, Sally. Thought I’d pass along some ol’ Jake Baker wisdom. Now just where is my camera?”

“You can keep your wisdom to yourself, jackass.” Now it’s Sally’s time to smirk. “Besides, it may be my first date, but it ain’t my first time.”

Both Jake and Sally’s date blink.

    I so remember your first date. You went to a dinner with some young chap in a military uniform. I have photos of all of your dates. Shall I scan and send to you ?
    Or can I blackmail you with them ? 😉 xx

  • I am breathing deep and sharing the first line of my (currently) unpublished book - "The Ramblin' Hand of Sherry Anne." After rewriting 75% of my last draft in three months, edits are finally fucking finished and I feel calm and peaceful and light. Typically, I tend to not want to share for fear of failure BUT I am freaking psyched. No more white knuckling this novel. Here goes nothin'. #teasertuesday #amwriting #amediting #manuscript #writerlife #writer #writermama #novel #publishedorbust
