I'm getting Urban Cowboy vibes. Are you writing something with John Travolta in it?

 

EDIT

Love the woman with the pink cowboy hat. That'd be a prompt I might be interested in tackling. hint hint

It's more the age and the lyrics.  It would be weird if I'd try to write about cowboys.  I leave that to @Headstall.

Nah... You can write anything you set your mind to. I have faith. :P

Oh, good! I love stories where someone stomps on somebody else. Looking forward to mayhem!

If it’s her it will be MAYHEM, no, @Mrsgnomie ?

Y'all act like @Carlos Hazday doesn't have some crazy crap going down in his stories. Like he didn't leave everyone dangling from a cliff for two years...

More like 3, but what's 365 days amongst friends? And I'm sure it was worth it. I mean, my MC ended up covered in blood after the gun went off. Did I mention I enjoy violence in stories?

Forgive me for mischief-making but I smell blood.  Mrs G v KBois and now Carlos H v Mrs G, perhaps.

I would never behead someone or two in my stories, at least not in this one. :no:

(Reads conversation of blood and violence, walks slowly way...) :lmao: 

I am contemplating something different for a story involving a boy and a hairy monster in the woods since we are in camping season. However, I'm trying to figure out how to organize this plot still. Would be fun to offer it as an anniversary story.

I had a thought that became an inkling of an idea. Isn't that how it often begins? We'll see if the idea bears fruit or not.:unsure:

I know, I know hurry it up and don't be like the White Rabbit.;)

Well, I just finished the story...don't know how folks will take it as I don't usually write in this particular genre and it's quite a departure from how modern authors write in this genre. Let's see what reader reactions are.

Well it looks like I need an editor to help with my story. I put out a request a couple of days ago but up to now there has been no response but there is still plenty of time, so fingers crossed 🤞

I’m happy to help out if you want to send it my way.

Yes, I've been waiting for about a week now for an editor as well, there's time still for hope. I am glad @Mrsgnomie is helping you out :)

I hope you are successful in finding an editor, unfortunately editing is not one of my strengths or I'd help. I'm lucky that an author as good as Mrsgnomie has offered to help me, I hope you are as fortunate too.
