So, I started a romance a while back and picked it back up. It's a New Adult Romance, 1st person from the guy's perspective, called "The Bro Code" Here's the opening paragraph. I'm almost to 9000 words. It'll probably be a novella. What do you think?

29 July, from Bramasole


As readers of See You in the Piazza know, Bramasole has been under intense renovation for almost two years. I think it cost me two books. Ed has flown over so often that flight attendants recognize him and even a customs officer at the Rome airport. Serious work! Much of it...

I saw a woman walking topless in downtown Kitchener today. I was in the passenger seat of my parents’ car, my father was driving and my mother was in the back, and my mother said, “what’s that woman doing not wearing a shirt? Or a bra?” And I happened to look, and got a bit of an eyeful. If I’d a...

A lot of writers I follow blithely spout how this story is going to run 70 thousand words, or 100 or 120, as if they can somehow see the eventual number of pages laid out before them in a crystal ball or something.
