Excerpt from my writing this week:
He takes a gulp of water, and raises an eyebrow over the top of the bottle. “You know that your mother had nothing to do with your being taken to Facility One or Rob’s death.”
“And that fixes everything?” I scoff into my own drink. “I was seven years old the first time I realised that she had a drink problem. Dad had been trying to shelter me from it, but Shana turned up at my school drunk and accused one of the teachers of making ‘sex’ eyes at my Dad. The other kids teased me about it for months. That was just one of the many ways Shana Leason ruined my childhood. It only got worse from there. I don’t want to talk about that woman anymore. Can we go for a walk? I need to be doing something.”
This week was not as productive as the last. On Tuesday I fell short, but I kind of justified this to myself with the extra words I managed during the rest of the week. I know that’s not the name of the game, but tomorrow is a new week, and with it I hope to experience some new motivation.
