Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns and anyone else who wanders in. Happy August. Yep. August!
Weekend writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published ot unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary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.
Set up: Marissa has spent the last year homeless and delusional. In this week's post, she's moving into a small house owned by a church. The pastor (Pastor Zaylor) and Rayanne, her volunteer counselor, are helping her take this step from the homeless shelter to her new "home", They've just arrived.
*note You might encounter creative punctuation :-)
Thunder boomed and wind drove the first heavy raindrops of a late spring storm against the house, rattling the old single pane windows. Rayanne’s face beamed when she set a box on the table, exposing tissue paper tufts in a kaleidoscope of colors. “Whew! We just beat the rain!” Then, as if hearing Marissa’s unasked question, she added, “This is for you.”
Marissa blushed, and her gray eyes brimmed, threatening to spill over for the umpteenth time today. Hiding her shame behind tears of gratitude wasn’t going to work forever, but the gratitude was as real as the generosity and kindness of these strangers that inspired it.
That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad ? I'd love to hear it and am truly grateful for every bit of criticism, opinion, and shared wisdom. Thank you so much for visiting! Sundays are extra busy for me right now, so it might take me several days to return visits, but I will. Have a great week, all!
