Weekend Writing Warriors-Blindsided WIP Snippet 7
Posted by Tina Christopher
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.
I’m now calling this story Blindsided, but it will be only a working title. There are a number of books already released with this sane title;). This snippet comes a little bit after last week’s. Ana has left Jace’s garage after he (hopefully) fixed her car. As much as she enjoys his presence she doesn’t plan to see him again until she discovers that Reacher, Jace’s dog, has stowed away in her car. Her work has a “take the dog to work” policy, so she takes Reacher inside and phones Jace. We are in Ana’s point of view.
“She turned on her computer and dug out the slightly crinkled invoice and stroked across the wrinkles in an attempt to flatten it. She picked up the receiver and took a deep breath before dialing the number on the invoice.
She had to bite her tongue not to giggle like a demented teenager with a huge crush. “Mr. Deegan?”
“This is Ana Marshall. I was at your garage this morning.”
“I remember.” His impatience practically jumped through the phone.
“I have Reacher,” she blurted out.”
What works, what doesn’t?
For this draft the dog will continue as Reacher.
I’ll be around a little bit later today as I am going to a couple of open houses. I’m looking to buy my first home, so now I need to have a look around and get an idea of what is out there. Exciting and terrifying at the same time:).
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous week! And here is some more research:
