Snippets

Weekend Writing Warriors #54!

Hey there, all you writery people! I’m back from a fan-freaking-tastic weekend in NYC with two of my best pals, Maggie Wells and Kristan Higgins! You can read all about it in my previous post, pics included! But read this first…another snippet from Steeped in Love!

Continuing from where we left off….

He’d vowed to try harder. If he sat here and let her go on dating all these other guys, he’d have no one to blame but himself. It would be tacky and undignified to pin her down in the bowling alley, tempting as it was. Tacky mainly because Al hardly ever cleaned the floors. He knew where she lived, though. He could try the old ‘I just happened to be in the area’ routine. Casual hadn’t worked for him up till now, but he doubted she’d find friendly neighborhood stalking a turn-on. 

Blowing out a frustrated breath, he rubbed the pads of his fingers against his temples. And so what if he did go to all this effort? Would it all be for naught?

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

Life has been so exciting as of late, with my Gilmore Girls fan fest and NYC adventure, but the colder weather is here and suddenly I’m ready to curl up in my PJs and go hardcore into hibernation mode. Six weeks and counting till Christmas vacation! Have a wonderful week ahead, my friends! 🙂

    Hmm. It’ll be interesting to read which approach he uses and how she responds. I love the detail of the tacky floor. It made me smile. Great snippet.

    First, I must tell you I worried about your trip to NY and relieved to know you had a good time and are home safe.
    The snippet is delightful with al;l his pondering.

    I’m glad he’s not giving up and is considering his options, even if none of them seem great right now. Glad you had a good time!

    You’ll never know until you try!! Love his inner dialogue, Julie!

    I can’t wait to see what approach he takes. Hopefully it’ll work out for him!

  6. Amy Braun says:

    I’m glad he’s going to keep trying! 😀

  7. Veronica Scott says:

    He’s sure overthinking the entire situation! And I hope he doesn’t go all ‘neighborhood stalker-y’ LOL. But I sure do love reading about it! Another terrific snippet.

  8. Carol says:

    I don’t know, neighborhood stalker might be endearing, as long as it’s not in a creepy way! He needs to do something, that’s for sure! He needs to look to you for inspiration, because you are certainly a do-er. I think you deserve to go into hibernation mode!

  9. Ed Hoornaert says:

    I like how you’ve shown his hard work and frustration, rather than assuming that just because he’s a guy he has it easy.

  10. Diane Burton says:

    At least he isn’t sitting there like a bump on a log. He’s actually thinking about action. Now he needs to get up and do it. Good snippet.

  11. Kimberly Gould says:

    Don’t give up! I’m sure he’ll find another way.

  12. Hywela Lyn says:

    I love the way he’s considering his otions and not just rushing in – but he almost seems on the verge of giving up – I’m sure he won’t though!
