Sunday Snapshot

Hey everyone, it's time for a Sunday Snapshot! We haven't done this in a while so I'm really looking forward to reading your contributions. Post the last paragraph or several lines of dialogue that you wrote. It doesn't have to be perfect. It doesn't even have to be good. It just has to be yours.

Here's mine. It's pretty bad first draft but perhaps it will encourage y'all to share, too. I really do like getting a little peek at all the different things you are writing.

    George's mum paced around him in a wide circle. Narrowed eyed, she ran her hand over the bag. She was obviously eager to make sure the alterations she'd made were effective. She tugged on the straps on more time and then she hit his shoulder. George took it to mean he was free to go to school.

  3. Hi Michelle,
    I am really looking forward to finally reading your sequel one day! I love the idea of Arathor having a little girl, and how Tiana gets to be a grandmother.

    Elaine, that was great! I love the action and the way that the mother and son relate to each other.


I apologize for the word verification. I hate it, but the spammers made me do it.
