The kids are in finally in school!  I had the first two days off and I so wanted to celebrate by writing pages and pages, and mostly I just took naps and more naps.

Oh, well.

I did manage to work a bit on my new projects and managed to choose the next eight from FML.  I’m skipping ahead a bit from last week, because spoilers spoil stuff, but it’s actually not a bad transition:


Three more rescheduled appointments and a vast array of delivered Chinese food later, the tale was told.

“My God,” said Samantha, who had long abandoned her desk to pace up and down the room to listen to selected entries from the data pocket. We’d used Reynard’s recording, audio only, though Samantha assured us that her terminal was secure.

“Gladstone-Klein has had a week to find out that you’re Clyota’s lawyer,” Charlie had said. “I’m surprised they didn’t bug your offices.”

Samantha had frowned. “Routine sweeps found several over the past few days. But I haven’t given it much thought—there are a few high-profile divorces going on and all’s fair in love and property division.”

  1. I like this line: “all’s far in love and property division.” (I think you meant fair). In marketing classes, I say all’s fair in war and marketing! LOL! Looking forward to the next snippet!

    • I did mean ‘fair’—thanks for the catch, Sharon!

      Maybe we should switch—love seems closer to the goal of marketing, and war is defintely closer to property division. 😀

  2. Samantha is such an interesting character and a fun attorney to listen to. I’m glad you got the naps in – resting can do a writer more good than pages and pages and pages done!

    • Thanks, Susan!

      I always feel a little guilty napping instead of writing—but my nose kept hitting the keyboard this week and I finally gave up. 😉
