Writer #3: Sorry I’m late. Ohhhh, I love that blouse. It really brings out the color in your eyes.
Writer #2: Thank you. Is everything alright, you look flustered.
Writer #3: Oh sure. My husband was just running late getting home from work to watch the kids.
Writer #1: Oh, I just remembered Talli and DL’s Significant Other blogfest is this Friday. I need to make sure my hubby has written something.
Writer #2: I don’t do blogfest. I refuse to post any of my writing on-line.
Writer #1 and Writer #3 glance at one another.
Writer #1: Um…this is a blogfest where your significant other post something about what it’s like living with a writer in the family. It’s not actually your work being posted.
Writer #3: And it doesn’t have to be your spouse. I’m having my sister do it.
Writer #2: Oh. I don’t think I could get George to do that. That man is a brilliant engineer, but I wouldn’t trust him to write a shopping list.
Writer #1: You could just interview him and post that. The goal is to hear what someone else in your support group has to say, so how you accomplish that is pretty open.
Writer #2: Hmmmmmm. So why are you having your sister do it and not Bob.
Writer #3: Are you kidding? You say the word blog to him and he thinks of an old horror movie. He has no concept of what a blog is and barely tolerates my writing time.
Writer #2: That’s too bad.
Writer #3: Tell me about it. You know that book signing we went to last Tuesday? I had to tell him we were going to a Victoria Secret party to get him to watch the kids.
Writer #1: I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about any of that. Danny is totally supportive of my writing and jumped at the chance to do this blogfest.
Writer #3: Are you sure? Think about it…maybe he agreed to do it too quickly. He could be secretly planning on spewing all sorts of toxic waste about you.
Writer #1: He wouldn’t do that…would he?
Writer #2: I think George understands my commitment, although we’ve never really sat down and talked about it. Now I’m wondering.
Writer #3: How did Talli and DL hook up anyway?
Writer #1: Hook up?
Writer #3: Get your mind out of the gutter, you know what I mean.
Writer #1: I write steamy romances, my mind is always in the gutter.
Writer #3: Well, I write fantasy, does that mean this is just a dream and your really not here?
Writer #2 gets up to leave.
Writer #1: Where are you going?
Writer #2: I’ve just decided that I’m going to convince George to do the blogfest.
Writer #3: And you have to go tell him right now?
Writer #2: No, but it’s going to take some convincing…which means I have to go shopping.
Writer #1: Huh?
Writer #2: I have to go to the grocery store to get items for his favorite meal, then I have to swing by the lingerie store. Bye!
