Michael tells all… almost

Packed a lot into just about 1000 words tonight. Just having difficulty with focus but Michael and Miranda are handling it just fine.

Michael has begun to tell her more about the valley and the house. How people will only find the valley when they’re ready. He’s telling Miranda about his past and reveals his feelings for her. She believes him but knows he’s still holding back. He skirted some questions but she didn’t want to drill him. She wanted him to speak to her freely and knows he’ll tell her about the mysteries of this place, and him, when he’s ready. ┬áBits and pieces, small steps.

They kiss for the first time…

Miranda needs answers… and Michael

Good night of writing 1600 words. Michael and Miranda are broaching new territory.

Miranda had been in the house alone. She left with tears after he didn’t show himself. Weeks passed before she couldn’t stand it anymore. She went back to the woods determined to see and talk to him. She’s drawn to him. She needed answers. She fell asleep in the woods and woke in her bed, in his house. She’s even more confused, has more questions and still no answers. He has capitulated and agreed to explain. However, Michael isn’t sure what he’s going to say to her. He doesn’t know where to start and isn’t sure how much he should tell her.

Michael and Miranda the work continues

So not a super productive night on word count. I did some editing and rewrite over the last couple of hours. Still managed about 1200 words of new content. Probably netted another 300 in edits.

So the update?

Miranda doesn’t know what’s up. She was gone for a week but had promised him she would come back. When she went back to the clearing he wasn’t there. Hours passed and she was cold in the dark. He answered her with a few very pointed questions from the dark and that was the last she heard from him. She can tell he’s around but she is the only one in the house as far as she can tell. He doesn’t answer her. She’s confused and getting scared. She came here for him.

Where is he? What did she do? Does he come back? Does she leave again? She has so many questions and knows the answers are going to lead to more.

 

#amwriting Good 90 minutes of #writing tonight.

Good #writing night. 1500ish words on Michael and Miranda in a couple hours. She knows things aren’t quite normal with him but can’t figure him out. He’s perfect but too perfect. The strangeness of the valley, the house in the woods, the looking perfect but not quite right. Lots of questions and vague answers. Now she has to decide if she’s going back or not. #amwriting

#amwriting Michael and Miranda and Jason 1st draft

Jason and his 7 have made first draft status. Now they get to relax for a bit. They clocked in just under 12,000 words. I’m sure after editing and rewrites they top that. My lovely wife will be ruthless with the edits and input but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Maybe some snip-its will show up here for your entertainment.

Now on to Michael and Miranda. This story started with 3 simple things from my wife – character age, sex and college course. It started as a verbal, on the fly story while we lay in bed and is now turning into quite the story. If it goes as expected it will probably turn into a two or three book series. This one will be a romantic fantasy. SO keep your eyes peeled! I’ll keep updates coming and maybe a snip-it here and there as well.
