I am queen of this little corner of my world…
by Cassandra Carr
Up until recently, I was writing either on the couch or a recliner in our living room. You can imagine how good the ergonomics were with either of those locations, but when my daughter was a little younger it was impossible to do anything else. Then she turned three in December 2011 and I decided enough was enough. It was time for a desk.
So I shopped and I shopped and I shopped, since I wanted a nice-looking desk because it would be in the corner of the living room, but I didn’t want to have to pawn the aforementioned first-born to afford one. After that, I shopped some more. Finally, a few weeks ago my hubby and I were actually able to go to an office-supply store by ourselves-do we know how to party or what?- and we found the perfect desk! Not too expensive, pretty good-looking, and big enough to hold all my stuff without looking like a war zone.
So now, here I sit, the queen of my queendom of one, unless you count my toddler as a subject, and personally, I don’t. She’d overthrow me in a heartbeat. And I write. And I listen to Imagination Movers in the background, hoping it won’t creep into my writing.
Hero: “We’re out of condoms!”
Heroine: “It’s an idea emergency!”
*sirens flash, buzzer sounds repeatedly, hero and heroine run around with no particular order to their movements*
If you’ve never seen Imagination Movers, that little skit isn’t nearly as funny. They’ve got some stuff on YouTube, here’s a link. Have at it, just don’t say I didn’t warn you. After all, this stuff is geared toward toddlers, people…
And now, an excerpt from Impact, available now from Ellora’s Cave
EXCERPT: This is the second chapter because the first is kind of a prologue.
