I can't thank everyone enough for all the wonderful advice they offered regarding the snippet I posted last week. Every bit of advice I got was golden and went a long way to improve the overall quality of the snippet. Thanks so much.
This week I'm posting another snippet from my pre-WWII, YA, (wow that's a lot of capital letters),friends to lover WIP, Rendezvous with Destiny. The story is still in the very early stages of first draft and has a million rough edges, but I'm having a great time exploring the time period. When you finish reading this snippet, don't forget to check out the WeWriWa list.
Please pardon the creative editing, I didn't want to end the snippet in the middle of a paragraph.
David ran his fingers over his head. “I’m sorry, there was an emergency in the barn and it took longer than expected.”
“Mmm, I suppose I should be glad you’re not even later.”
Rosika tucked a pale green ribbon between the pages before closing the book before turning her attention to David.
The world went topsy-turvy. Instead of the skinny, freckle faced girl who’d been his best friend for the past eleven years, he seemed to have come face to face with the real life version of Gladys George, the actress he’d admired ever since he and his buddies managed to sneak into the local cinema and catch an afternoon showing of the Maltese Falcon.
Discovering the skinny, freckle faced girl he'd known for more than half his life had somehow morphed into a stunning dame made David's stomach hurt. He didn't want her to be beautiful, he wanted her to be the same girl who'd always been his best friend.
In other news, Chip Eiter invited me to participate in a Paying it Forward blog hop. I'll be posting my contribution tomorrow and one of the things I have to do is tag three writers who are than supposed to create a post and tag three more writers. I love these types of blog hops, but never know who to tag, I hate the idea of bothering people who might not have time to participate. So, I've decided to do this, if you want to take part, use the comment section to let me know, and tomorrow I'll tag you in my post. Questions the Paying it Forward blog hop explores include;
- What am I working on?
- How does my work differ from others of its genre?
- Why do I write what I write?
- How does my writing process work?
