Hello all you WIPpeteers and welcome to my contribution to this week’s WIPpet Wednesday. The image I’ve used is not quite right as my character Anna is a brunette. Which I could always change I suppose… But I thought it linked in nicely with this week’s excerpt I’m sharing with you which reveals a bit more than last week.
It’s following straight on from last week’s excerpt. To recap Anna is on the train home with her friend Melissa having been up to London together to meet Anna’s agent. As in last week’s piece I shared there’s no dialogue, just Anna reflecting on what’s gone on. In true WIPpet fashion my excerpt relates to today’s date: 17 lines from chapter 7 for the 17th July. Enjoy!
But most of the time her thoughts kept pulling her back to the meal with Peter two nights before. She’d enjoyed meeting him; there was no question of that. He seemed a nice enough bloke – but a love interest? She wasn’t so sure. Was he keen on her? If so Anna didn’t know how she felt about that. He’s my agent, she thought, and surely I need to keep our relationship professional? She was glad she’d brought Melissa along.
It’d been good having her frank perspective on things. Without her she would have floundered even more in the face of those conflicting emotions she’d experienced during the meal. As it was she still felt anxious about what had transpired at the meal with Peter. She found herself analysing her feelings towards him. I really should give it a rest, she thought. I’ve only just met him. It was all so confusing. Why could life never be straightforward? It didn’t seem long at all before the train was pulling in to Warston station.
If you would like to take part in WIPpet Wednesday it’s easy – simply post an excerpt of your most recent work of writing on your blog that relates in some way to the date. So it could be 17 paragraphs from chapter 7 or 7 lines from chapter 17. You can be flexible. Then add your name to this linky. Thanks to K.L. Schwengel for hosting.
