First thank you for the gift. I loved it.
This past week I wrote 3,605 words, spent 4 hours Saturday researching ball gowns for the Masquerade Ball short story I’m preparing to write. I asked to join in the Hearts Through History Anthology and they’re asking it involve a masked ball. Found a beautiful dress for the heroine who doesn’t want to go despite her BFF being the hostess. The hero is tagged to escort his twin sisters, he has no desire to attend it either. Looking for clothes for him. I’m setting it in Texas Dec 31, 1898. I hope I can keep it at the required 7500 words and still have a decent story.
