Hi all. I felt frustrated today because yesterday I spent ages on my computer, writing and updating my blog, but it didn’t occur to me to prepare my post for today’s WIPpet Wednesday. Hence I have less time, or at least I feel like I do. Anyway, unlike last week today’s selection for my WIPpet Wednesday contribution was easy to find. I don’t think I’ve shared it with you before.
Apologies if you recognise it but I just don’t have the energy to trawl through my previous posts. I’m still knackered from yesterday morning’s exercise class. It’s called body pump and – well you basically pump your body for an hour with different weights, often using a barbell. You get the idea. It’s very intensive, but it’s good for me. And I’m actually starting to enjoy it now. 🙂
Anyway back to today’s post. I’ve chosen 5 lines from chapter 6 – seeing that ties in nicely with today’s date. At this point in The Inheritance, Emma has left for London and Kate is still on the farm in Cornwall working hard. She’s brooding about herself and her father and what will become of them in the future…
It was six pm and Kate was still hard at work. Harvest time was one of the busiest periods she and her father had on the farm. She was busy lugging bales of hay from the wagon attached to the tractor into the barn. Her father often told her not to carry too much, that she’d hurt her back, but Kate ignored him. She liked to feel weary at the end of the day; it sent her straight to sleep at night and meant she wasn’t lying awake worrying about her future and her father.
If you would like to take part in WIPpet Wednesday, simply post on your blog an excerpt from your current WIP which correlates somehow with the date, so it being the 5th June today I chose 5 lines from chapter 6. You can be flexible. Once you’ve done that, add your name to this linky. Many thanks as always to K.L. Schwengel for hosting.
