Draft 1 COMPLETE!

  • Goal was 100,000 words.
  • Rang in at 100,913.
  • Fifteen writing days, averaging 6,700 words per day.

My shoulders tell me that next time I’d better dial it back to 5,000 per day, do yoga every day, or use dictation software part of the time!

Teaser:

“Mrs. Gable is really nice. I’m glad she offered you a place to live.”

“Me too.”

“You think it will work out there?”

“How do I know?” Dakota challenged. “I don’t usually stay anywhere for very long. People promise to take care of you… and then they don’t.”

 

Synopsis:

Parker’s mother always said he jumped into things without thinking first, and that’s exactly what he did when he saw Dakota, cold and hungry, fending for herself on the city streets. How could he ignore the pain and fear in her dark eyes? Dakota was eager to go to school and she made friends quickly, eager to make up for a dismal childhood full of deprivation and abuse by enjoying every moment she could.

But there was something wrong with Dakota. It wasn’t just the hollowness in her eyes or her traumatic past. Others sensed it too and warned Parker not to get too close to Dakota. But despite his questions, Parker just can’t help falling for her.

Dakota holds her secrets close and Parker is worried that if he pushes too hard for answers, she’ll just run away.

 

Tell me what you think!
