Chapter Nine of Bandit, the next ten words from Twilight, Bet Me

Entry: I’m not going to take up too much time today because I need to focus on my writing. I wish I could say that there’s something exciting going on in my life right now but I can’t. Well, maybe that I’m on chapter nine of my new rewritten novel Bandit.

Oh and that I’m reading again. I just read an old book I bought from a book giveaway at Columbia College Chicago. It’s called Bet Me by Jennifer Cruise. I won’t go too much into detail about it right now because of how late it is but it’s basically a single-title romance and a women’s fiction book all rolled into one. The romance starts when one of the main characters (Calvin Morrisey) goes out on a date with a woman in a checked suit (Minerva Dobbs) on a bet for ten thousand dollars. After they go through with the date, Calvin and Minerva vow to stay away from each other until unusual circumstances forces them back into each other’s company. In the end, they realize that no matter how hard they try, they just can’t stay away from each other.

The reason why I say it’s a women’s fiction book is because the story doesn’t just center on Calvin and Minerva, it centers around their friends as well. Minerva’s friends ends up hooking up with Calvin’s friends which gives the book a very entertaining and enthusiastic read for people who want more out of the romance than just the hero and heroine. I love this book so much that I’m thinking about doing a couple of journal entries on what I observed throughout the book in terms of romance, dialogue, the sexual tension between the hero and heroine, the whole nine yards. But first, Twilight.

Which reminds me: Here are the next ten words from Twilight. Enjoy:

26. Appraising - to make an official valuation of; set a price or value on, especially by authority of law or agreement of interested parties. To estimate the amount, quality, or worth of; Judge.

27. Chivalrously - Having the qualities of the ideal knight; gallant, courteous, generous, brave etc. pertaining to the feudal system of chivalry.

28. Peripheral - of or pertaining to a periphery. Distant from the center; hence, distal; external.

29. Gratingly - (1) A grate. An optical device for the dispersion of light waves and the production of spectra, visually consisting of a series of very fine parallel grooves cut in the surface of polished metal or glass, sometimes of a suitably mounted crystal. (2) Harsh in sound; rasping; irritating - the act of rasping.

30. Providentially - Exercising foresight; economical; anticipating and making ready for future wants or emergencies.

I’ll probably do another journal entry before the end of the month. Until then, Buenos Noches.
