Weekend Writing Warriors – 3/24/13



Hello and welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. As you can clearly see, I’ve redone my website since the old design was an eyesore for me. It took me half a day and a little help from some friends, but I did it. This week, I continue from my last 8, where a new girl comes into the scene to explain more about Cammy. Actually, she’s Ryan’s coworker at the bookstore and her thing against Cammy was introduced in a previous chapter. Hope you enjoy! On another note, I’m looking to host some bloggers. I’m particularly interested in hosting YA authors on Thursdays or Fridays, since these are my free spaces. If would be interested, send me a line in your comments, or click on the “Contact Me” menu on my site. Anyways, here’s my 8:

Ryan whipped himself around and saw Beth. He nearly jerked back since it was the first time seeing her in casual clothes. He grabbed the back of his neck and squeezed it hard.

“What are you talkin’ about? How the hell do you even know her anyway?”  

She let out a long, low sigh and stared at him with droopy eyes. “Just get away from her before she ruins your life too.”

She turned and walked away, her sandals squeaking against the floor.

  1. Another great snippet Frank, l love the squeaking sandals! I also like what you’ve done with your blog, it looks great!

  2. Oooooh, a warning from an old flame!! How exciting! Love your new page, too!

    Very mysterious! You did a great job using action to convey his surprise. Great 8, Frank!

  4. Carrie Crain

    Nice descriptions with droopy eyes and squeaky sandals. Sounds like Beth knows quite a bit!

  5. I have a feeling he won’t listen to her though. A fascinating story, terrific snippet!

  6. I sense some definite bitterness from Beth. I’d like to know what Cammy has done to get in her bad books. Something tells me Ryan won’t listen to her, which makes him a great MC 🙂

    Thanks for the mention, Frank 🙂

    I’m up for guesting on your blog at some point, if you’ll have me!

    • For now Ryan won’t listen to her, but definitely wants to know what’s up. I’m happy to have mentioned you, something I should do from time to time. I’d love to host you; I’m looking to host someone on Thursdays or Fridays. Send me your details by clicking the Contact Me button on my website.

  7. Wonder if she has anything helpful to say? And thanks for the mention.

    Actually, Beth sounds more poisonous than Cammy. Great snippet, Frank. And thanks so much for the mention! 🙂

    • Good guess about her. Glad to mention you, you are one of my fav authors on Weekend Writing Warriors.

  9. “…before she ruins your life too.” That line and the single word “too” are so powerful in this scene and filled with dramatic expectation. Well done!

  10. Advice from an ex never bodes well.

  11. Love the mystery and the detail. Beth sounds like she has a serious grudge against Cammy. Ryan better tread carefully.

    Site looks nice too, Frank. :o)

  12. “Just get away from her before she ruins your life too.” LOL. That just make me even more curious about Cammy, as I’m sure it does for Ryan.

  13. “before she ruins your life, too”? That “too” makes it all kinds of mysterious. I wonder whose life she’s already ruined. Very intriguing.
