Hi everyone. This is my first WIPpet Wednesday on my new blog. I’m hoping I can get it to work properly, not being used to WordPress. So hoping this works, here are the first six lines of chapter three of my current WIP (it being the 6th March today):
Anna and her friends stopped in their tracks to admire the beauty of Wodefrey Place. The stunning eighteenth century mansion house loomed ahead of them, seeming to tower ever upwards. Tall columns marked the imposing entrance. Standing on top of a hill, the house commanded an estate of more than three hundred acres. It was so quiet there Anna felt as though the house and its grounds had been placed under a spell, and would not wake for another hundred years.
‘Do you think we’ll be allowed in?’ Lizzie asked in a stage whisper, making Melissa burst out laughing.
‘They’d better after all the money we’ve forked out to come here,’ Rachel said.
‘I don’t suppose they’ll have a problem letting me in anyway. I am dressed for the occasion after all,’ Anna deadpanned.
Three pairs of eyes turned to her, scrutinising her outfit. Anna had worn a classic-looking little black dress with a smart coat and kitten heels. Dark sunglasses were propped up on high on her head and her hair was swept back in a chic chignon.
‘You do look like Audrey Hepburn reincarnated,’ Melissa said.
