Hello fellow WIPpeteers! How’s your week been? Mine’s been interesting, lots of new developments including looking in to doing some proofreading for fellow authors… Anyway back to today. The excerpt that I’m sharing today is from my WIP which has the working title of ‘Reunion’. I’m sharing the opening 12 lines, it being the 12th June today. I have a feeling I shared the opening of this before BUT – and it’s a big but – I’ve been tweaking it, trying to make it grab the reader more from the beginning. Please let me know what you think. BTW big shout out to my good friend Kate Frost who’s publishing her novel The Butterfly Storm today. Yay for Kate!
‘That’s the last of them.’
Anna couldn’t answer. Her eyes were full of tears which obstinately refused to go away. Melissa looked at her with concern.
‘Are you OK, Anna?’
Anna shrugged by way of reply. Then gulping, she somehow found her voice. ‘I’m so glad you’re staying,’ she whispered. ‘It’s been pretty awful really.’
Melissa put an arm around her shoulder and squeezed. ‘Well it’s all in the past now. It’s a new start for both of us.’
If you would like to take part in WIPpet Wednesday, all you have to do is post an excerpt from your blog which relates somehow to the date, so it being the 12th June I’ve shared 12 lines. Or it could be 12 paragraphs. Or 12 words. You could even get clever and take 12 lines from chapter 6! Go on, get creative. 🙂 Then add your link to this linky. Thanks as always to K.L. Schwengel for hosting.
