Break Writing #1

So for those of you that may not know, I have recently returned to the work force, doing an hourly job (working overnights, of course, so my schedule is going to get even weirder) while I pay for my schooling. My shifts are always nine hours long, with an hour off for lunch. During orientation, I brought a notebook and spent the entire lunch break penning away or checking Twitter on my phone (because I'm OCD like that). I have decided that, pending major homework assignments, I am going to try and write at least one paragraph on each of my sitting-down breaks, and I'll share as I go along (unless it's a major, major spoiler, like the time Sarah goes and--oh, whoops, almost gave away Fates's greatest secret (I see you snapping your fingers over there, Ayefah)!).

So here it is, a snippet from my writing from my first day on the job. And you'll be happy to know, it's Fates. Hit the break for it:

"I highly doubt Sarah is going to turn LA into a nuclear wasteland just because of me."

"Whatever helps you sleep at night, Bar--Cousin Sascha."

"I can't believe my name gave us away," Chuck said, his brow wrinkling. "I mean, didn't it ever occur to them that I could've changed my name or taken Rosa's when I apparently married her?"

"What the hell are you blathering about?"

"I don't know, anything to distract me from the fact that...and my girlfriend might be on the phone getting nuclear codes to come save the day?"
The ... was a spoiler I didn't want to share.


Have a nice day!

    As someone that had to work their way through college, I feel your pain. This time in your life is a sacrifice for your greater good and believe me it is well worth in the end.

    Good luck balancing out your daily schedule,and as an avid reader of all your stories, I appreciate you taking time to write some amount each day.

  3. I had the same goal, when I was working a dead end job. Writing during breaks is lame, because you can never really finish a thought before it's time to go back to work. It drove me crazy!

  4. It's always great to read some Fates. Thanks!
