Weekend Writing Warriors – 3/10/13

Hello and welcome to another week of Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m sharing another eight from my novel in progress. I apologize to those on Hump Day Hook – work has kept from participating and commenting on everyone. I’ll try and get back on it as soon as I can.

Set-up: Cammy explains how she got drunk, which caused her to miss dinner with Ryan and his brother. Cammy is the first to speak.

“After work, a couple of peeps wanted to sit at the beach and drink some beers,” she confided, sending another text.
 “But you knew we were gonna meet at the diner at six, right?”
“Yeah, but I needed to blow off some steam, had a rough mornin’.”
“Rough morning?”
“Had nightmares the night before and felt like shit the next day,” she clarified. “Thought one beer wouldn’t hurt, but one beer turned to two, then three, lost count after that.”
“And you didn’t even have the courtesy to call and tell me this?”
She shrugged and sighed, her eyes half-lidded as she shoved her phone into her bag.

 

I know what you’re thinking: Ryan should run. Perhaps he should, but he isn’t able to since he knows the real Cammy is still there. Click on the link for the complete list of participating authors and check their snippets out.

Six Sunday 10/28/12

Welcome to another round of Six Sunday, the place where writers gather to share snippets of published and unpublished work. I would like to thank all those who commented on my last post. Special thank goes to Siobhan Muir, Elin Gregory and Monica Enderle Pierce for their help and suggestions – Thanks so much ladies! Anyways, we continue from the last line of my previous six. Cammy, knowing that Ryan doesn’t trust her, gives Ryan something that her late mother gave to her while she was alive. Hope you like and Happy Halloween! So here it is:

“Hold out your hand,” she said as she pulled a silver ring off her middle finger. Holding one hand out for her, he swallowed multiple times as he stared at the ring sandwiched between her two fingers. The only thing he could think was, “What’s she doin’ now?”

“My mom gave this to me long time ago, wantcha to have it,” she slipped the ring onto Ryan’s finger. His mouth gaped open and his body froze as he stared at her in disbelief. Being a touching distance from receiving something so sentimental clouded his sturdy gaze.

Visit Six Sunday for more snippets from great writers.
