Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 13

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. This snippet comes a little bit after last week’s. Garrett is taking Clara on the tour she’d asked for, but the tension between them is growing hotter and hotter. For the first time in her career Clara is struggling to focus on a mission. Just before this snippet she’s forcing herself back to the task and asking Garrett to see the cargo hold. We are in her point of view.

His brows rose; his eyes filled with a hint of suspicion. “Why would you want to look at a bunch of boxes stacked on skids?”

She waved him off, “I don’t want to look at the individual boxes, silly. I want to see how you managed to squish all the cargo into the bay and I want to see it all in one place.” She smiled. “Remember, it’s all about the size for me.”

His suspicion didn’t ease completely- a darkness filled his green eyes for a second but then cleared out again and his lips twitched as if to cover for his mental misstep. “There are plenty of things aboard the Bismarck which have a girth impressive enough to warrant your admiration.”

What works, what doesn’t?

Today is another insane day (what happened to Sunday’s being lovely and relaxing), so it may be evening or even tomorrow before I make it around. The sun is finally shining in Toronto! I cannot tell you how excited I am about this. This last winter has been endless and horrible, so not having to wear 13 layers is wonderful.

Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!

  1. Loving all the double entendres! That last sentence especially made me lol. Good stuff as usual!

  2. Yes, this tension is indeed growing hotter. I like the name Bismarck for a ship. Great snippet. Glad things are warming up in T.O. That’s where I’m from originally, but I haven’t been home for nine months.

  3. LOL! I think he’s right to be suspicious.

  4. Oh, but they are being naughty with the innuendoes! Fun Snippet!

  5. I don’t think that last line counts as innuendo–I think “blatant invitation” might be a better word. Not that I’m complaining at all! 😀

    I certainly hope the other passengers will be able to see through all the UST. 🙂

  6. And more fun sexual innuendo between them! Excellent excerpt as always…

  7. As I’ve noticed before, you’re a master…uh, mistress…of double entendre.

  8. Haha! I guess he told her. 😉 Snappy dialogue. Wonderful snippet!

  9. Ahh… I think she’s using her feminine wiles to distract him and it’s working. :D.

  10. Dialogue superb and naughty. Really, kids.

  11. Hah! I don’t think she’s getting her way on this one. He’s distracted, but not enough to stop thinking. She might have to try harder.

  12. Size matters. Lol.

  13. Steamy snippet, I especially liked this line ‘twisting the heat inside him.’ So sexy!
