Home Game

With less than 15 hours on the clock she’s down by 21,172 words.  She intercepts the pen and raises across the page.  There’s a clear path to the goal and OH NO! Technical Foul due to toddlers happy fingers.  She takes a 15,922 word penalty, bringing the current score to 37,094.

It’s a good thing she came to the game prepared with long handed copy, but the set back is gonna hurt.  She shakes it off and moves to fill the pages once more.

As the clock ticks down and we move into the 4th quarter nothing stands in this writer’s way.  It’s a clear shot to victory!

But what’s that on the 50 yard line?  Looks like one hell of a plot snag.  That’s gonna slow her down, and the players in center field are going flat, she’d better add some dimension or they are going to cost her the game.  And can that hill really be her climatic ending?  Unless she can make a mountain out of a mole hill, it’s sure to disappoint.

She’s got some major hurdles to clear and time is running out.  Can she defeat the opposition and score those game winning words before the finial buzzer sounds?

Only Time Will Tell!!
