firstdrafthemingwayHi guys.  I got a lot of writing done over the Thanksgiving holiday.  I thought you might enjoy a snippet of my work in progress.  (PS, I plan on posting a work in progress snippet every Wednesday.  That’s the goal, anyway.)

Here it is, from Anika takes the long way home up soul mountain:

“Joke’s on me,” I say out-loud, swallowing a mouthful of dry pancakes.  What she doesn’t know — and what I’ll never tell her — is that last night’s kiss was my very first one.  My very first fucking kiss, and I’d already been played, already been the butt of someone else’s joke.

It fucking figured.

“I’m so, so sorry, Anika.  God, I’m so sorry.”
