These are my weekly blog memes. Each day has one (Sunday has two).

Monday: Monday’s First Sentence
Tuesday: Teaser Tuesday
Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday
Thursday: First Chapter First Paragraphs Thursday Intros
Friday: Friday’s Page 69
Saturday: Cover Lover Saturday
Sunday: Weekly Quote & Sunday’s TBR Updates

NOTE: Around 2019 I switched around Thursday’s and Tuesday’s posts as the Monday and Tuesday posts were too close alike. So instead of Teaser Thursday it became Teaser Tuesday, and First Chapter First Paragraphs Tuesday Intros became First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros.

“Yeah, well, he’s never going to find out, is he?”
My marker falls out of my hand and down into the space between my bed and the wall. I expect him to say he’s sorry, but he doesn’t say anything at all, and the silence is weird, like he’s waiting for me to call him out for talking like that. But I can’t.

I sit in the corridor with my dog in my lap, singing him to sleep. My throat stings with magic as the words of the spellsong tumble from my lips. The puppy nuzzles closer, sleeping breath caressing the back of my hand as he snores. His russet ears are as soft as velvet, and he’s small enough that his warm body fits in the crook of my knee.
