Ibis lost his voice yesterday so now we're communicating by hand signals. His favorite? The Sammy Sosa chest-thump kiss-kiss thing. So sweet.
I'm not sure how his day as a receptionist will go, seeing as the main thing he does is answer the phone and talk to guests, but I suppose he'll figure it out.
This actually ties into my writing. Yesterday I got started on one of the few scenes I have left to write - a bar fight. While fight scenes are new for me, I added the extra challenge of not having the MC involved in the fight. Instead, he was standing nearby, talking to two other people. I had to find a way to keep the action of the fight going while also showing the conversation. There were lots of hand gestures.
I still have a little more to write to finish the scene but I'm glad I got past the initial hesitation I had to writing it. Hopefully the rest will keep flowing!
btw, my dad's bag arrived yesterday, so he's all set now.
