Last night I was trying desperately to get to 1K, but I kept falling asleep. Tonight, I go to look at the last bit I wrote so I can start again. Here is what I have:

==
She opened her mouth to ask, then closed it again. Though Hallie was usually the one who asked even when it didn't make sense to laugh, even when the table looked like something from an old circus.

"Keep your ears open," Hallie said to Maker. "I don't know what's going on," she continued. "I don't know if it involves the living or the dead or anything in between. But I know that one person's died already and whoever's involved it can't be good.

Maker gave her a bow. If questioned, it would have claimed that it wasn't a bow, that it wasn't asking anything, because it didn't, it never asked. It either did what it wanted or followed Hallie or some nearby luch or roae
==

Yeah, I have no idea.

Awesome example of Kelly Link's night-time Logic.
 
These luch and roae are creeping me out and I hope they don't hurt Maker.
 
I don't actually even know why they're having this conversation. Though I am interested in the table that looks like something from an old circus.
 
This makes me want to write a story titled "Some Nearby Luch Or Roae".
 
If you need a reader/crit at some point, I'd be happy to. I don't know who or what anyone is, but it doesn't matter. I'm hooked. (It reminds me of one of chance's short stories for some reason, and what you've got is nothing like it. So go figure.)
 
I love this!!! Also, I am thrilled that Maker is in book 3. Also also, I think I had luch and roae for lunch...
 
+Jenn Reese Was it any good? And, yes, Maker is in book 3. So far just hanging out, but I'm sure a plot will emerge soon.

And, +Marsha Sisolak I will definitely keep you in mind, though when I am awake and writing stuff comes out different :)
