I’m back! Did you miss me? I’m finally back writing again – and I’m going to finish the short story I did in ‘Dirty Doms’ which is now going to be called ‘Sparks.’ So, here’s a little snippet of where Lois is right now 🙂

Lois

Two months later I found myself sitting behind a spotless glass desk in a prestigious London office, dressed in an immaculate black suit and bored out of my mind with paper work. Miss Sharkey (appropriately named – or should that have been Snarkey?) had decided to keep an eye on me before she agreed to clear me for field duty, and I had to admit that I was as close as I’d ever been to having my sturdy rod of control snapped in half. Filing in chronological order should have been declared a modern day torture method. Seriously, I’d take waterboarding over the past three weeks of hell I’d been forced to endure. The inactivity was killing me, the coffee sucked, and the work was mind-numbingly boring. Faxing, copying, redirecting telephone calls, typing, spreadsheets, and more of the same came my way daily. The eight-hour workday suddenly morphed into a suffocating prison sentence with seemingly no end in sight. I couldn’t help but wonder if they were actively trying to court my resignation. There was no way I could take much more of this. How did people do this everyday?

That’s all for this week folks, but there’s much more to read over at WIPITUP Wednesday 😉
