I am procrastinating. The pivotal scene where Elle meets Brant for the first time needs to be written. It has to be momentous, gripping and heart-racing. The setting is Rome in the year 331 A.D. The Foro Romano is overcrowded with merchants, with impoverished and homeless citizens looking for a handout, and slave traders who ply their trade.
Told from Elle’s perspective, the sight of Brant should cause her to freeze, to miss a heartbeat at his magnificence.
I am sure the words, the images, of that fateful day will come to me. I should just start writing what comes to mind for now. Eventually, it will take shape in a way that will make the meeting one for the ages.
