If you're here, making Sunday rounds for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, please scroll down the page past this post. My "W" post actually is titled "W is for Weekend Writing Warriors". :-)
Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns, and anyone else who wanders in. Can you believe it--April is all but done!
Are you doing the A to Z Challenge? If so, please leave a comment so I know to visit you! :-) The homestretch has arrived. Three letters to go.
Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
Set up. I've continued where I left off last week. Tayden just told the Port operator (against Drave's will) that he can sit at their table. Drave just either cautiously or rudely ignored the Port man's handshake gesture.
Taking his seat, the operator removed his hat, a simple, wide brimmed affair. He set it on his lap, then turned toward where the server neared, bumping and jostling though tight spaces. Short on height but generous on girth, her broad smile squeezed dimples into her cheeks. She slapped a customer’s shoulder, and scolded, “Keep yer hands to yerself!” Stopping a table away, she raised her voice to be heard above the low, chattering drone. "What're ya having tonight?" The she put her hand up to her ear like she was trying to capture the Port man's answer.
“I’ll have the fish stew and some hard-crust bread--it's the local river fish, right?”
That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad? I'd love to hear it.
Thank you so much for reading this. Have a good week!
