Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 11

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 the beginning of a trilogy. I’ve had two characters walk onto the page and inform me they are the heroes in the next book, so I guess there will be three of them. Now I just need to figure out their stories and who their heroine is;).

This snippet is immediately after last week’s, which ended with Garrett taking Clara on a tour of the dirigible. They’s been flirting quite furiously;). We’re still in Garrett’s point of view and last week’s snippet ended with him saying “Let’s start with the basics and work ourselves up to the more advanced destinations.”

“She raised a brow at him. Fire heated her eyes, giving the grey a green shimmer. “Maybe I’m not interested in the boring basics. Maybe I want to go straight to the more advanced…destinations.”

The slight pause fanned the flames racing through him, raising his awareness to new heights. “Maybe I prefer a somewhat slower pace.” He opened the door on his left. “This is the dining room.”

What works, what doesn’t?

I have a plan for today! Get up early (that happened already;), make my rounds with the WeWriWa, go to my exercise class  and then I will write the final 7 scenes in this book! Fingers crossed I can make it. Things always turn out longer than I plan, but hopefully I can at least get the bones on the page.

Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!

  1. Dang. That escalated quickly….ROFL. She’s a bit of a sparky one, isn’t she? Love it!

    One suggestion, the first sentence in the second paragraph I THINK has an extra word.

    “The slight before pause fanned the flames racing through him” — I believe either “before” should be removed, or else the sentence should be reworded to better specify the pause before the phrase. However, I think just leaving it out would work better.

    Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

  2. Wow,she is so incredibly forward, but I guess he’s going to make her work for it. If the dining room is unoccupied, it could easily become an advanced . . . destination, with it’s convenient tables. 🙂 Love the chemistry between these two.

  3. She’s direct. I wonder if the dining room will please her? Nice eight!

  4. I like that he’s not going to be bowled over by her and I suspect she’ll like that too. Great job of continuing to ratchet up the tension.

  5. You have a busy day ahead. Cheering you on your last 7 scenes. The flirting in this is perfect and makes me smile 🙂

  6. Aw, playing hard to get, is he? Love the dynamic between them:)

  7. I bet she has plenty of interesting destinations in mind. He’s holding his own, but I don’t think he will be able to keep control for long…

  8. Very nice dance going on between them. Thank you!

  9. She is forward and I got the feeling, no matter how attracted, he disapproved. Maybe he should clear his throat before showing her into the next room. Definitely a suggestive and intriguing snippet.

  10. Oh, these two are GREAT together. But I’m looking forward to the more advanced destinations LOL. Excellent excerpt!
