The Hothouse


I was gardening this morning.

I love spending time with my hands in the dirt, watching things grow. It's worth the labor and sweat involved. As I was weeding, I was thinking of the writing project I am working on with Remittance Girl. I don't want to give too much away, but it's botanical in nature (sort of). I'm enjoying the give and take involved in writing with a partner, learning to give up a bit of ego, and appreciate what the process is teaching me. The hardest part so far has been waiting for my "turn". So, today, I decided to work on a little something of my own and dug this out of the soil of imagination. To make it more fun, I set it in a summery greenhouse and gave myself an exact 1,000 word count to work with. It's probably more porno than erotica, but I hope you enjoy it. Leave me a comment to let me know.
