Since meeting Kate I’ve found all this cool stuff to do with my blog. Like change the blog title. And contemplate the malice of Muses. And WIPpet Wednesday, hosted by K.L. Schwengel. It’s where you share an excerpt from your current WIP that’s somehow related to the day, so since it’s 7/16, I’ll share 7 lines of chapter 16.
(Okay, it’s actually 10 lines in Scrivener so the excerpt will actually end on a satisfying note. I’m too picky.)
Here’s the linkup if you want to join!

“What do you mean, art will die out?”
“Anyone can play a record when they want to hear a song. We’re the ones who wait till it desires to come. Then, when the song finally comes to us…” He made a subtle gesture with his hand, letting go of an invisible load Allie pictured vanishing into thin air. “We give it to someone else.”
