Archery, cupid, and a stack of broken arrows

I got back into it! Arrows aplenty into the target, bit more sighting in with my ikea allen key, and a groovy pvc pipe quiver.


Okay, it might be a bit ugly, but I can reach my arrows a lot easier now, and it only took 10 minutes to make. Just screwed an endcap on, drilled a hole near the top and popped a clip through. I will have to spray paint it sometime.

In my writing tonight I’ve been wrestling with some cupid-style archery instead, as in: how to get characters together gradually, in a non-vomit inducing way (how good was that segue? No?).
I tried to get some flirt going, and some teasing at one another, but thankfully I found a way to end it before things got too awkward: make them pass out drunk. Alcohol: solving all of life’s problems! Including writing ones…

I’m sure I should be reading some good advice on this kind of writing. Can anyone recommend a good reference? Tips?

Best regards,
