Sidetracked is my 2017 NaNoWriMo novel. For those who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, click here.
Sidetracked turned into something far different from what I had intended. I wanted to write a cozy mystery, but what I got was far from cozy. This moment is, however, really cute, so I decided to share it.
“I promise. With all my heart,” Vanessa said.

“Not you, f*ckwit!” Scott laughed.
“I needed Scotty Snuggles,” Jasper teased.
“Get to work,” Scott replied.
“That’s the problem working with your best friend,” Vanessa said, giving Scott a hug.
