Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 7

Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.


I’m continuing to share from my current work in progress FPWL. It’s a companion novel to Dirigibles Are Forever and hopefully the beginning of a trilogy. This snippet follows directly after last week’s. Clara and Garrett had a more or less wordless exchange last week-maybe even faced off a little;). We’re in his point of view and the punctuation is just a little creative…

“Garrett turned to Jens. “I believe you have other passengers to look after; I’ll take care of Miss Riesenbeck and anything she may require.”

Relief flashed in the young man’s eyes. He bowed to both of them and practically ran away.

“I don’t know if I should be insulted at the speed of his departure or pat his cheek.”

Garrett laughed. “Neither-I just think you were too much woman for him. He didn’t know how to handle you.”

She raised her eyebrows at him. “And you do?”

What works, what doesn’t?

Toronto has been just a tad nippy this last month (we’ve been hovering around -30C (-22F)), so I’m very excited it’s the first day of March. Spring is-hopefully-not too far off, because this is how I’m feeling right now:

die winter die

Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!

  1. Too much woman indeed! Now I can’t wait to see how Garrett “handles” her. 🙂

    Stay warm!

  2. Oh…I like the whole exchange! Can’t wait to see how he answers that question;)

  3. I love that he ran away! Great interchange. The sparks are already flying. (The flowers are blooming here in Oregon, I’ll send some sunny vibes your way.)

  4. Ooh! Does he know how to handle her? That poor kid who ran away…

  5. This snippet works just fine. I enjoyed it completely.

  6. They flirt well together! I can’t tell if her last line holds an edge or a challenge (probably both?) but they certainly won’t bore each other! 😀

  7. Love her comeback. Also love the poor little dead snowman.

  8. Oh yes, I have every confidence in Garrett…and also in your heroine, so this should be good LOL! Fun snippet!

  9. You ought to work the snowman’s demise in your story. There’s a tale there somewhere, right?
    Off topic:I read that Toronto won’t be hosting a second book fair. Too bad; I enjoyed appearing at last November’s fair.

  10. Well, he thinks he knows how to handle her. But I bet she’ll prove him wrong at least once or twice!

  11. “I just think you were too much woman for him. He didn’t know how to handle you.” She raised her eyebrows at him. “And you do?””
    What a terrific set-up! My goodness, those sparks are going to fly.
