Next on the Slide...

Is there any better feeling then being "next" on the slide, at the coffee shop, in line for cake or ice cream...you get the idea. There is a feeling of nervous excitement when you know you're next. You watch the person in front of you and you wonder if the ride is going to be as fun, the coffee as satisfying, the cake or ice cream as sweet as you've imagined? The person in front of you seems to be taking forever and in your mind you're bouncing with the energy of "I'm next." "I'm next!" "I'M NEXT!!!!!" This is currently the picture in my head. My characters in my novels are all standing on the steps leading to the slide to publication. Arianna is currently on the top step, about to sit down and slide down on the slide for the second time and go out into the world. Arianna's Destiny is almost ready! Almost! ALMOST READY!!! Close enough for Arianna and her crew to sit on the top seat and put legs on the first part of the slide (an awkward feat as she refused to go without her blades). The characters from Breaking Trust are NEXT! They are so excited for Arianna and are completely supportive and completely on board with helping her get ready to slide down. They are also really excited to be next on the slide.
