Fire in my belly

“Sheila, warm your feet by the radiator”, said Evelyn. “Thanks Ev, my cotton socks soaked up a bunch of ditch water.” Evelyn takes the sobbing socks out of the room in a bucket. “Slip out of those pants before you catch your death.” Sheila rolls the faded jeans into a puddle on the slate floor. “Jeez, these pants are steaming.” “Well, you did break through the ice covering the ditch”, Evelyn calls from the mud room. Sheila answers. “I wanted to get a closer look at that momma deer and her baby.” “Fawn, Sheila, its called a fawn.” “Ok, whatever. Think we could both get a warm eggnog and brandy to help us recuperate?” Sheila answers. “You mean, can I get us both a holiday nog? Yeah, sure, I could use some fire in my belly.”

    I love the phrase ‘sobbing socks’. It’s very original and makes me feel that the socks are so much more than wet.

      Thanks. I think it could be foreshadowing a later part of the discussion. I just needed to mess around with dialogue. I have loads of dialogue to start editing.

        I’ve found that dialogue is a little easier to edit than descriptive parts. The way a person talks gives you a little more breathing room because nobody really speaks in perfect grammar. At least, that’s how I look at it.
