Do do do doooo! We did it! I have officially reached 7500 words in Onnie's adventure. Today has just been a fantastic day of progress; 7500 words, the first round of edits implemented and updated AND I have gotten to write TWICE this week.
I am so excited and I just love this project, who knew doing what you love to do could give you such an emotional high.
Well as always I have updated "Onnie's Story So Far..." with the latest chunk of new material from tonight. Make sure to check it out and if you can, reread the first part of chapter one. I made some content revisions along with grammatical ones as well.
Thanks for all of the support everyone!
Onnie made her way to the register and slid her bag under the counter flipping through the day’s inventory log in the process. Apparently they had two stock deliveries a few hours earlier; three cases of the Tor publisher new releases and a single book from source listed as AB. Frowning, Onnie closed the log and walked around the counter and made her way over to the corner with the wing backed chairs. Rounding the corner she smiled seeing her grandfather tucked into the largest of the chairs with a steaming cup of tea in his hands.
“Why hello my beautiful granddaughter, how are you this evening?”
“I’m fine grandpa,” she kissed his cheek, “how’er you?"
“Oh nothing to complain about. Felt like getting out of the house for a bit though, Rebecca suggested dinner here with my girls would make for a pleasant evening.”
Onnie smiled and looked to Rebecca who had emerged from between the shelves carrying her serving set.
“Tea Dear? You mustn't catch a chill after your run.” Rebecca placed the tea tray on the overstuffed ottoman and poured Onnie a cup of tea and handed it to her.
“Thanks.” Onnie said warmly. “Do you need help with dinner?”
“No, thank you. You stay here and keep your grandfather company. That’s help enough.”
With that she pat the old man on the shoulder and left the sitting area.
“You went for a run my dear? I didn’t know you ran.”
“Yeah, I haven’t had a chance since the move, but I was talking to mom and it reminded me of an area I wanted to explore near my appartment.”
“We have some lovely trails in the area, and if I remember correctly we even have a book or two in here that has maps and the history of the trails. Ask Rebecca, she’ll point you in the right place to look for it.”
“Thanks! That sounds like fun, i’ll make sure to ask her.”
