Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. If it’s not one thing it’s another. I’ve been so busy – but busy is good! So here’s something from one of my archived WIP that I’ll hopefully pick up again. It’s a YA thriller with strong romantic elements, working title CREEPER.
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and about 100-150 words starting with the the first paragraph on page 15 or chapter 11. I know I have a few non-writers, so you may also post an excerpt from your current blog post-in-progress. No need for critique, just a little writer love.
Here’s mine :
I sighed and turned the frame face down on the table. Everything around me reminded me of Josh. The gate key even hung on a key chain he’d bought me on our class trip. Annoyed, I snatched the ring off the hook and stomped to the back door. Before the day was over I was bound to throw a tantrum.
Denver barked. “What is it boy?” I asked, stopping with the door handle in my hand. He barked again. I was in no mood for his nagging. “I’m telling you, it’ll just depress you.”
Denver cocked his head to the side and whined. I swear he was worse than my mother—he knew when something was wrong and insisted I spill it before I was allowed to leave the room. I massaged my temple and then stared into those dark brown eyes that belonged more to a human than my canine companion.
“It wasn’t me,” I said. Denver’s unblinking gaze implored me to continue. “I don’t know how it happened. One minute I was having lunch with Candace planning our shopping trip for prom dresses, and the next I had broken up with Josh and was ready to tear him apart.”
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
