Writers know that the weekends are always great. Not only do they finally have a little extra time to work on projects, but it’s also a great chance to connect with other writers through the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop. Anyone is welcome to participate, no matter what genre they write. During the course of the blog hop, you’ll get to read all sorts of published and unpublished 8 sentence snippets, many of which are really, really good.
My contribution comes from my YA historical novel, Rendezvous with Destiny, which is set during 1941. This snippet picks up where my previous post left off. Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Public sales of the chocolate treat didn’t last long. When the United States entered WWII, the company made the decision to send all of the candy they produced to the troops.
