Fractured Toes & Opening Scenes

I opened a blank document this morning and was all set to type DRUID II at the top... when suddenly the most perfect title popped into my head! It's a play on HIS FORBIDDEN PRINCESS and I don't know whether it will fly or not but at the moment it captures exactly the feel I'm searching for. Not only that but I managed a whole page! And after all my angsting on trying to figure out what the hero was up to in the opening scene, it's my heroine who walked onto the page. *Typical*

Anyway, back to that one page. The reason I didn't do any more is because last night my son, for reasons known only to himself, decided to use the family room as a skating rink, bent his big toe under and then fell, crushing said toe with his entire body weight. So most of today was taken up with the doctor and getting x-rays (he fractured the top section of his toe) and now he's on crutches. What fun!

OW! OW! OW! I fractured my toe when I was about ten - falling off a horse - and right now I can remember exactly what it felt like. Much sympathy for everyone.

Ouchie, I've broken my big toe twice, once wearing flip flops and tripped up a kerb and two years ago when I fell over a laundry basket, and it's very owie

Wow...sounds extremely painful...the toe, not the writing. I knew the writing would be good once you got started!

I said a title would come soon. That's great.
lol.. had to laugh when you said your heroine marched onto the page. Love the sound of that. lol

As for your son, yes, ouch! Broken bits can surely hurt, although I have never broken a bone, as yet. :)

Christina,
don't you just love it when the words flow!
Your son will do anything for a bit of attention, won't he (wink wink!)

Thanks for the sympathy everyone, I've never fractured or broken a bone either although those flip flops can be lethal! And Mel that's so funny because he has a Year 10 river cruise Friday night and we've been joking some people will do anything to get out of dancing!!

Ouch, hope he's in a little less pain, Christina! And I hear you about flip flops... ;)
