Weekend Writing Warriors-Blindsided Snippet 11
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 days after the last snippet, in which Jace picked up his stowaway dog from Ana at her office. Over the next few days Ana keeps thinking about Jace, but she’s growing more and more tense because her car is acting up and she’s hearing voices while driving, but there’s no one there. At work her files are acting up, not saving properly, but without rhyme or reason. Let’s just say she’s getting a little tense even when she’s doing her best not to let it affect her. And then she works late one night. We are in her point of view.
“After another day that resembled a marathon more than a workday and ended way after regular people’s bedtime—the compressed deadlines Book Lovers had were best described as challenging—she walked outside to her car.
Night had fallen, but the lamps scattered across the parking lot made her feel safe enough.
Or they did until light after light went dark.
She pulled her phone out of her pocket and dialed 9-1, ready to hit the final 1 at a moment’s notice.
A sound like footsteps echoed around her. She cursed her need to be healthy and to park at the far end of the lot to get some extra steps into her day. If she made it out of this she’ll join the gym and park right at the entrance.
Ana shoved her bags so they hung from her shoulder, held the phone in her left hand and moved her keys so one poked out between her fingers of her right hand like a dagger. Or rather like something that would hopefully hurt anyone stupid enough to attack her in sensitive places.
The steps behind her grew louder and heavier.”
What works, what doesn’t?
I’ll be around later in the day as I’m spending a lot of time at my new place and preparing things for it.
It was tight, but I still found some time to do research just for you guys;).
Happy Sunday and have a fabulous week!
