Snip, snip! It’s Snippet Sunday!

Posted 31 July, 2011 by DLWhite in Snips&Shorts, Writers Write 1 Comment

I guess I’m staying with that title for now. I decided, since I am writing the sequel to this story right now, to post a snippet of it today. Mostly since I haven’t really gotten that far on the sequel and I think I will be able to post a snip from that one next week.

This is from Rescue Me, Originally posted August 8, 2010:

He gave her a devilish half grin and rolled to his side. “So there’s a part in that movie, which we‘re probably missing right now, where Edward climbs the trellis outside Vivian’s place, like the Prince in her story. And when he gets to the Princess, he asks her, what happens after he climbs the tower and rescues her?”

“She rescues him right back.”

He smiled, stroking her cheek with the tips of his fingers. “I didn’t want to be here by myself, so I went out last night. I was in a room full of people but I was alone, and I was coming back to a house where I’d be alone.  I probably wouldn’t have made it home, but then you came and rescued me. And I know you’re leaving town and all, but– ”

Barely audible, Gabby said, “You could rescue me right back.”

He laughed aloud, scooting closer to her. “That’s exactly what I was thinking I would do.”

You can find the entire story posted at my archive here or at the NF archive here.



#FridayReads, the Long Lost Participant Edition

#FridayReads, the Long Lost Participant Edition

 Haven’t done this in awhile. Back when I had my breakdown I stopped doing everything, including reading. I committed to reading 50 books this year and I am behind by about four books, so I am back in the saddle. Just finished: Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones – incredibly compelling read. The first part sets the scene… part two sort of blew the top off of my head.  I just kept turning pages to find out what else was going to happen, while biting my nails and trying not to blink. Fantastic book, my fave from Ms. Jones, though I did really enjoy The Untelling.  Recently started: Snowy Night Seduction  by Arianna Hart– Just started […]



WIP Wednesday, all late and such

WIP Wednesday, all late and such

Yeah. I meant to post yesterday but what had happened was… Sometimes I just don’t have much to say, or I have too much to say and I don’t feel like typing it out. There’s only so many times I can say ‘I”m working on two things and they are going okay and also I’m pretty sure that I suck as a writer but then again I think I’m pretty good.” It gets hard to even remember that week after week. So, I don’t blog to blog, I blog when I have something to say. Finding something to say is the problem.  So, on WIP Wednesdays we talk about progress […]



Write On… this week in writing 7/25

Write On… this week in writing 7/25

Good Monday morning to you all (and by all I mean the three or four people that read this blog)! Last week was alternately busy and slackerrific. I started my new story for the archive, due in August. Got about 5500 words in, which is pretty good.  This story is a sequel to one that I wrote for the same challenge last year and only hit around 6500 words. I’m not getting how the sequel is going to be longer… but perhaps because it covers one more night. I don’t know if I should revamp it for the sequel to cover the same span of time, or keep going like […]



Snippet Sunday: Rescue Me II

Snippet Sunday: Rescue Me II

So, I mentioned a few days ago that I would no longer be participating in the official Six Sentence Sunday. I also mentioned that I would continue to post snippets and teasers, so I’m continuing the Sunday posts, just not for the #SixSunday Crew. I need a new name for this feature. Calling it Snippet Sunday for now. Suggestions? Anywhoozle, on to my sentences for today! They’re from the project I’m currently working on for Awesome August, a summer writing challenge at the NF archive. It is a sequel to the story I wrote last year, a cute little ditty that’s reminiscent of Pretty Woman. Enjoy, and please check out last […]



Write On… this week in writing

Write On… this week in writing

Good Monday morning, everyone! Checking bright and… well… checking in. I want to thank everyone who stopped by the blog yesterday to read and comment on my Sunday Six post. I’m finding that I love all of my stories for different reasons and sharing them is fun. However, yesterday marked my last day of participation in the Sunday Six. I really have to evaluate what I want to get out of each community that I join. I am looking for a camaraderie among writers, an opportunity to share my work and hear people’s thoughts about it and also bring new readers to my stories and to my blog. Part of that is […]




Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop: Writer’s Flashback (in which I facepalm)

Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop: Writer’s Flashback (in which I facepalm)

This month the Fellow Writer’s Blog Hop topic is Writer’s Flashback. To take a look at something written maybe several months to years ago and share how our writing has evolved since then. Oh. Gawd. I have been writing since I was a teenager, but I don’t have any of that material. I took a long, LONG hiatus from writing and only picked it back up a few years ago in the form of Fanfiction. *cough* NSYNC fanfiction*cough* The first story that I wrote was really, really bad. It was never posted anywhere and I abandoned it pretty early on. It was reincarnated as my longest. story. evar and I […]
