Since we are close to the release, I am coming to you with another excerpt from the book. This is from a Debra chapter and the only background you need is that the story begins the day after Debra has told her husband she’s having an affair. This could mean losing her job as Principal of Morningside Middle School as well as the respect of her daughter, a student there. And if the scandal hits the wires (and there’s a good chance of that since the PTA President hates Debra) it could mean embarrassment for her husband a prominent CPA. The stakes are high and Debra is… just swimming in it. Drama. LOVE IT.
Hi folks! I picked a fun snippet for today from my first #NaNoWriMo project, Same Time Next Week. There’s a bit of language in this one so… read at your own risk! Also please note that this story is fanfiction so if that doesn’t float your boat, it won’t hurt my feelin’s none! Read the full story at the NF archive HERE or my personal archive HERE.
Today’s snippet is from my current…ish serial A Thin Line, a story about two people who’ve known and loved each other nearly their entire lives, but you’d never know it because they bicker constantly. They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. JC and Angie find out how thin that line really is when they’re forced to plan the wedding of their two best friends. Why aren’t I running away, horrified that this man I cannot stand just gave me the best kiss I’ve had in years?
If I wanted Max, I would be with her. What if I want you?”
For Writing Wednesday this week, I am sharing an excerpt from my forthcoming novel, Brunch at Ruby’s. The book hits the digital shelves on 3.24.2015!
This story was written as a gift for the Secret Santa 2011 Challenge at the NF Story Archive. Thought I would revisit it for Christmas! Christmas Eve, 2011 Orlando’s Fashion Square Mall was decked out in its annual holiday finery, beckoning with the sounds and smells of Christmas. Lush green garlands with sparkling lights intertwined between the branches adorned the doorways of each store. An enormous, fully decorated tree stood at the center of the mall, stretching three stories tall. And just loud enough to hum along to, cheery mood-lifting music filtered over hundreds of heads from loudspeakers. You wouldn’t even know it was December- damn near Christmas- if […]
Music is a great writing tool for me.
A fun writing exercise to spark writing/plotting idea.
And this is the point where I entrust years of work to someone to read and pass judgement .
The “project” that I started in 2011 (I think?) that I fought with, wrestled with, had nightmares about, cried over, quit, came back to, completely trashed and started over, was complete. Brunch at Ruby’s is… for all intents and purposes, WRITTEN.
