Weekend Writing Warriors-Blindsided Snippet 10
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 continuing with my WIP Blindsided. This is a few paragraphs after the last snippet in which Ana admired Jace’s form when he came to pick up the dog (I’m changing the name, but haven’t reached that point in the revisions, so for now he’s still Reacher).
Ana is the fiction buyer for a major (made up;) book retailer and suggests a couple of books (she has copies the publishers shared with her) to Jace based on the choice he made for his dog’s name. Reacher joins them when he hears Jace’s voice. We’re still in Ana’s point of view.
For a moment they both just stood there looking at each other. Ana searched for something intelligent and captivating to say, something that would extend their time together, but, as usual in these moments, her mind was utterly blank.
He cleared his throat and lifted the books. “Thanks for the reading material.”
“You’re welcome. Thank you for fixing my car.” She bent down to Reacher. “Thanks for the company.” Reacher wagged his tail and grinned from ear to ear. Ana laughed and shook her head.
What works, what doesn’t?
Tha last three weeks have been a bit insane for me. I bought my very first condo! Everything is moving incredibly quickly (I have a two week closing date) so my brain is mostly mush and I’m feeling somewhat overwhelmed;). I now need to make decorating decisions and start packing as I’m moving by the end of next month. What?!? How the heck did that happen?!
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous week!
