Wow. Twelve weeks into this project already, and forty more to go. Putting everything together, the story is almost 1.5K words long. Funny, that can be about two hours work for a single project, but it’s exciting to open the manuscript only once a week to see how the characters are doing. The “no pressure” approach allows them to be themselves. Will see what happens today. I think Mr. Devil wants to have his POV heard. Perhaps I’d switch next week and see what’s on his mind.
Week 12 of 52: Elliott’s POV [story continues right after the previous entry.]
“I’m here, in the flesh, as you requested. Are you going to keep ignoring me or are you just hoping that I choke on this disgusting beer?”
“I’m sorry, father, but that’s what “humans” like to drink. You know, I have to blend in.” Instead of answering the rest of his father’s questions, Elliott snapped his fingers and their mugs got refilled. His father laughed and he couldn’t have resisted joining him. The rightness of it hit him by surprise.
