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 to 10 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
The new story so far has no title and no blurb. This snippet is continuing right after last week’s. We are in Ana’s point of view and she’s thinking over what had happened that morning. Well, mostly she’s thinking about the hunky mechanic;). Last week ended with “And those green eyes-Ana sighed.”
“They would stay with her for some time. His face had given little away, but his eyes had carried so much pain and darkness. The same darkness that enveloped him like a cloak.
Like recognized like. The thought should have disturbed her, but for a moment she felt a link to this man she’d only exchanged a couple of sentences with. And short sentences at that.
She chuckled. She had a feeling he was one of those monosyllabic men. Not a problem for her. She could talk for the both of them.
Ana exhaled-not that she would see him again.”
What works, what doesn’t?
I’m on my way to New York for Romance Writers of America National Conference today, so it’ll be a bit later before I can make my rounds. Fingers crossed the hotel internet will be working;). I’m excited about the conference. It’s only the second time I’m going and I’ve seen a bunch of panels I’m looking forward to. And one of my heroes is there: Nalini Singh! I’m hoping to get a book signed and she’s also doing a talk. I’ll be a bit of a fangirl…
This week my inspiration went a slightly different route…
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous week!
Lots of little hints at what’s ahead. Wonderful snippet, Tina, right on down to her sigh.
Enjoy your conference. I hope you get your book signed. 🙂
Thanks, Teresa. I’m glad it’s coming together.
I like Ana’s self-awareness here. She knows he might be bad news, but he intrigues her anyway. And the strong silent types are perfect if you’re a talker. 🙂
Lol, thanks, Christina.
