Lucy’s first assignment for Getaway Travel Magazine sends her packing to Paris where she will explore four major places the French city has to offer along with her best friends. Michael is a writer, publishing horror short stories and poems. Jenny teaches college courses and is looking to take a much-needed trip to explore what she is most passionate about – history and adventure.

 

A story about friendship, traveling, and finding yourself.

Lucy, Michael, and Jenny are heading to The American Library in Paris as I continue to write Chapter 7, and Lucy does some research for her Eiffel Tower article!

WIP Milestone âœ¨ðŸ“š "Where Will We Go?" is coming along amazingly and I'm so excited to see how much I'm growing while writing it. - May 6, 2020

His eyes get big, “Yes, Lucy, tell us what you’ve learned since getting to Paris.”

 

The first line of today's writing session. We are back at the Eiffel Tower, but Aaron is joining the gang via Facetime. What can Lucy tell him about the beautiful France landmark?

Nothing like a walk in the cemetery on a Sunday morning for my characters.

​

They have just finished their walkthrough of the Cimetière du Père Lachaise Cemetery and are about to venture into Montparnasse Cemetery

​

Join if you dare?

"The Genius (Angel) of External Sleep" guards the hundreds of glamorous and intellectual Parisians who rest in the tombstones and grave plots spanning miles each way. Beautiful colorful flowers decorate the grass beneath the stone statue.

Cimitière du Montparnasse Cemetery is the final destination on the agenda for Chapter 7.

Wanna come along?

Hitting my personal chapter goal a day early!! Feeling pretty accomplished right now!! ðŸ˜

I never thought I would write a sequel, but here I am eight chapters in (7 written during this pandemic) and a whole lot ahead of me!!

2020 isn't all that bad after all, it just depends on how you look at the year. 

The collection holds some of the most famous artworks in the artistic community including one of Leonardo da Vinci's most talked about paintings. The Mona Lisa is heavily guarded and protected, but still just as enchanting as ever.

- The Louvre. ðŸ–Œï¸

Lucy's middle name is revealed! :)

When I am trying to make a point or am mad at someone, I usually include their middle names. I take after my mom in that way, I guess you could say. I can't tell you how many times someone has said, "Emily Nicole!" to me and my ears instantly perk up.

It is only fitting that her best friend would be the one to reveal her middle name.

Plus you find out some background about Lucy's Mom, Lindsey. When Lucy was born on August 2, 1995, Mrs. Berry was obsessed with the book, Matilda. (This was before the hit movie came out in July 1996). Lucy gets her movie/book references from her mom.

A nice chill day in the park, what could be better?

- Parc Monceau in Paris, France.

'My jaw falls open and I am speechless. This mall is huge. Tall and narrow clear glass windows line the curves in the building's elegant structure. Crowds of people are walking everywhere as we get out of the taxi.'

Chapter 11 is off to a great start! Let's see what all shopping this Paris mall has to offer as my characters adventure this huge unique building.
