The one word that epitomizes Pure Dumb Luck is fun. Definitely. 100%. Fun.
And I definitely made that decision consciously.
The first two novels I wrote in 2019 were emotionally heavy. One was a nightmare to write from conception to the last word. I desperately wanted/needed to enjoy the process of writing again.
Woody and Eddie are the epitome of a Rom-Com. While writing, I definitely visualized the entire story as a movie. Pure Dumb Luck—coming to a theatre near you—I wish.
Sadly, we’ll have to settle for the written word.
It was lines like this that had me laughing constantly.
“What’s a blowjob on the baseball scale of sex?” Woody followed Eddie down the trail. They had four more miles to go before they hit their first campsite of the hike. “Third?”
“Two balls and a strike .”
There are so many moments in the novella that had me chuckling (and wondering if my editor would make me rewrite them.)
She didn’t, thankfully.
I might’ve had to fight her to keep my precious moments of silly humour together.
Do you love a good Rom-Com?
