Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella, the same author who wrote the Shopaholic series, is about a woman, Emma, who spills her secrets to a man seated next to her on a plane they think is crashing. Turns out he's the owner of the international company where she works, zaniness ensues, and they end up together, of course. Kinsella has a knack for creating characters that I can relate to - they mean well but keep putting their foot in their mouth.
I almost wet myself over one particular line, despite my headache. Emma recently broke off a long-term relationship (who also works at the same company) to pursue the big-wig, and the ex just found out:
Connor's face is slowly turning different colors. "NO," he gulps. He looks as though he's seen a ghost. And not just any old ghost. A really big ghost with clanky chains, going "Whooo!"
Maybe it was my delirium but, good lord, I thought I'd wake up the neighborhood. I couldn't stop laughing!
One other thing: I've been playing around with some settings on my blog - shuffling the links and adding a keywords option - but I'd also like to add a section with important posts to read. I've recently had some new readers and I don't expect them to dig through almost 200(!) posts to find out why I'm here. As readers, is there something in particular you think I should include? I know my first post should be highlighted, but other that that, I'm not sure.
I'd love your input.
One final thing: yesterday I joined an online writing group (THANKS Spyscribbler!) so I might make some progress yet!
