Okay, so I have admittedly fallen behind schedule. Part of this is due to the fact that the story I was working on last Friday (by hand) is still in my office where I left it after my lunch break. So rather than risk interrupting the flow of the story in progress, I decided I would pick that one back up on Monday and write a new story inspired by the fantastic painting above in the meantime, courtesy of the talented Kristen Wenke. Kristen shared quite a few of her paintings with me, and I had a hard time narrowing it down, but I just couldn't get this one off my mind, so it was no surprise with a much longer story than usual flowed from it. I strongly recommend checking out more of Kristen's work, which you can do here! Thanks, Kristen!
Title: Walking the Tightrope
Muse: Kristen Wenke
Story Word Count: 4389
Total Word Count: 9020
Summary: This story revisits Emma Jakowski (from Bunny Ears for those who are familiar with my work) who is feeling frustrated with the impending birth of Jakowski baby #7. She develops an unexpected desire to become a famous tightrope walker. She decides to take advantage of a family trip to the circus, by running away and trying to join up with the show's start tightrope walker.
What I Like About This Story: I love Emma and have long planned to write more stories about her. This seemed like the perfect, whimsical opportunity to do so. This is also much more upbeat than the previous three stories for this project, and I had a lot of fun writing it.
Okay, off to play catch up on my story/word counts!
