Note: Strong language

Sunday, December 31st, 11:47pm
Andrea (and Edward)


Andrea sits at the window. Edward takes the seat beside her.

Andrea: I can’t believe I’m stuck on this fucking bus at (looks at her cell phone) thirteen minutes to twelve on New Year’s Eve.

Edward: You’re not alone. I should be out drinking.

Andrea: Tell me about it.

Edward: I could take you out somewhere …

Andrea: I beg your pardon?

Edward smiles, showing his plastic fangs.

Andrea: Oh my God, are you kidding me?

Edward: No. Wanna ditch the bus? I could really go for a drink.

Andrea: Let’s go.


Next stop: Monday, January 1st, 5:00pm

Reminder for The Escapist Coloring Club Prompt and Happy New Year

As January 1st quickly approaches here (happy new Year to those whose clocks have already changed!), I just wanted to remind anyone who is interested that my other new prompt begins tomorrow for The Escapist Coloring Club. I’ve designed a badge in paint – it’s nothing to write home about, but it’s something. I’ll likely change it eventually to make it more fancy.

The prompt post will go up tomorrow with the rules, which will be slightly different as the prompt is, so far, only once a month. If you’d like to start preparing your posts today, I’ll be asking for one full shot of your colouring project, and at least one closeup of a part you’re particularly proud of, if there are any. Don’t forget, your prompt photo can be your own colouring, your kids’, or even your significant other’s if you’d like. The prompt will go live at 9:30am (-5 GMT), and entries will be welcomed all week, so don’t stress over it! The entire point of this prompt is to give yourself time to relax.

With that, I wish everyone a healthy, joyous, and prosperous new year. Cheers to 2018!
