Arekan: So the scribe is still writing the trash that “pays the mortgage” but since it seems to keep her in coffee and milkshakes, I won’t complain too much, though I’ve heard there a bit of clamor for her to finish the Arekan’s War Series.
[scribe, um Beth:] One reader is hardly a clamor.
Arekan: Well, yeah, seeing you are doing nothing about the series…
Beth: [mutters] I don’t deserve this. Arekan, tell the readers about your email address.
Arekan: Oh yeah. So I had the scribe set up an email address for me which is Arekan@bethturnage.com.
Beth: It’s weird you have an email address.
Arekan: It’s weird you aren’t writing about me.
Beth: Hey, I finished two chapters of Pirate’s Luck and submitted them to Fantasy Writer’s Org monthly challenge.
Arekan: Yeah, yeah, where your five fans found the story scintillating.
Beth: They aren’t fans. They are fellow writers. I can’t help it if they enjoyed the story.
Arekan I didn’t enjoy it at all. How many times will you try to kill me, woman?
Beth: As many times as it takes.
Arekan: To do what?
Beth: Stop you from complaining.
Arekan: That will never happen. Go write. I have laundry to do now since you made me—”
Beth: Ssh! No spoilers.
