Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns. How are the NanoWriMo-ers doing? :-) If you're doing Nano this year, and are looking for writing buddies you know, our Jess: Whimsical Quests of a Curious Mind has started a thread on the nanowrimo site. It's here: http://nanowrimo.org/forums/writing-groups-and-clubs/threads/181417
Now, down to business. :-) 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 Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST.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: The MC was vanished without a trace for two years, then returned "without a trace" too. She'd been found in the desert alone after having just given birth. She was investigated for foul play in the disappearance of her newborn.
The book is written in three parts. (1.) Her journal entries in first person, then ( 2.) her "reality" day to day life while she tries to get her life back, written in 3rd, and then(3) her dream sequences also written in 3rd. In today's snippet, Marissa is meeting with her counselor, Rayanne.
After lunch when she returned to collect her journal, Rayanne fixed her a cup of tea. They sat in her office, sipping the orange and clove scented drink. She wasn’t sure which relaxed her more, the tea, or the comfortable room. The décor, in shades of baby blue and peach was perfect for a counselor’s space, completely disarming. On the walls, prints of laundry hanging on a clothesline matched the color scheme. Who’d have thought it? But it worked so well. Tiny shirts and blankets were blowing in a breeze, and clouds dotted a pale blue sky just below the gilded frames.
