New Manuscript Smell

I’ve broken ground on a new manuscript. It doesn’t have a title yet, but the idea is a modern Pride & Prejudice trapped in a cabin.

Wringing her hands over the rented Civic’s steering wheel, she glared out through the stark white landscape. It’d started muddy and grey, dawn hours off when she left New York. Six hours later, knee deep into Vermont’s snow-capped mountains, the sapphire skies did nothing to evaporate the dread in her heart.
