Snippets

Weekend Writing Warriors #100!

Good morning, all you fabulous people! Since today is the last day of March (and how the heck did that happen?), let’s keep marching forward with another excerpt from Learning to Love! 🙂

Continuing from where we left off…

Rebecca blinked. “Uh…”

Towanda swept the remaining cards into a box, then she sat in the seat opposite Rebecca’s. “The truth hurts sometimes.”

“Ohhhh, so they don’t actually bite…?”

The older woman guffawed. “You’re not a believer, are you?”

“Well, I mean, I…no. Not exactly.” She shrugged, feeling as though confessing such a thing was sacrilege in Towanda’s purple tent.

Here’s the blurb:

Rebecca Ledgerwood is a Physical Education teacher who’s ready to invest some sweat equity into a lasting romance. On a whim, she has her palm read before summer vacation ends, and she’s told she’s an old soul who’ll find happiness with a younger man.

William Whitney leaves an unfulfilling career to pursue teaching and gets placed at Rebecca’s school for his Physical Education practicum. He’s desperate to make a difference, convinced that the choices he made in the past contributed to his younger sister’s death. Kendal High School is nothing like the prep school he attended as a teenager, but he’s determined to make the most of his time there, especially if it makes Rebecca notice him.

Though they come from vastly different backgrounds, there’s an undeniable chemistry that sparks between the two. They resist, as they must, until his practicum ends, but when he’s offered a teaching position at his former prep school, will he take the easy way out, or fight for what’s right in front of him?

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

It’s currently after one (in the morning! *gasp*) as I’m typing this, and for very good reason. I’ve been out on date #2 WITH THE SAME GUY at a karaoke bar, singing songs, making new friends, dancing, drinking, eating chicken wings, and loving life! Hope April is full of wonderful things for all of you! Till next week, my friends! 🙂

    I hope you aren’t too busy living the romance (two whole dates!) to keep us posted on your story. Selfish of me, I know.

    Always having fun, meeting people. You are a rascal, my friend. Enjoy your life. Good things are coming.

  3. Veronica Scott says:

    Enjoyed the excerpt as always! This tarot card excursion has been fun…

  4. Botanist says:

    She seems a bit distracted by this diversion into the tent.

  5. Kate Hill says:

    I like when a non-believer has no choice but to become one. Enjoyed the excerpt.

    #100!!!!!! Wow, congratulations! Quite the milestone there! 100 weekends of entertaining us with snippets. Thanks for your weekly updates – always a reason to smile!

    Ha, I’ve been in Rebecca’s shoes before. Sometimes it’s hard to not roll your eyes out loud when you are such a skeptic and the other person is a true believer.

    So tell us the most important part of the date: what songs did you sing? 😉

    1. Julie Evelyn Joyce says:

      LOL it’s way more than 100, believe it or not. That’s just 100 since I started posting them on this blog. I’ve been participating in the WWW since my days of writing as Evelyn Jules. 🙂 More importantly, though, thank YOU for being here through it all. Your support means the world to me!

      Sadly, the karaoke bar was so packed that we only got to sing one song each. I chose Black Horse and the Cherry Tree by KT Tunstall, and he sang Home For a Rest by Spirit of the West. I also filmed him singing it. 😀

  7. The Real Cie says:

    For my own part, I’d rather roll on a bed of rusty nails than become romantically involved. Hopefully, April will involve preparations for moving, which isn’t exactly fun but it will be good in the long run!
    I enjoy reading Tarot cards, and I actually have a fairly good level of accuracy. It’s stunning to me how many people act like the room is going to burst into flames when I enter after they find out that I can read cards.
