I’m being kind to myself again by not having an image with this post and therefore not having to scour Google images for ages looking for a suitable photo!!
Anyway onto the task at hand: For this week’s WIPpet Wednesday I’m being kind to you too (slightly kinder than last week anyway) by sharing with you 11 lines from chapter 13 of my current WIP Reunion.
The maths is simple: 11 for the month, 13 for the year. There you go easy peasy. Moving swiftly on, at this point in the story… I might give too much of the plot away by telling you what I was going to tell you!
All I will say is that my MC Anna has been neglecting herself. She’s been brooding about stressful things that have happened to her and she’s really low physically and run down.
A few paragraphs ago from this excerpt she fainted. (Gosh I think I tell people more about myself than about this WIP!!)
And here you have it:
Anna nodded obediently and closed her eyes, sinking back down onto the softness of the pillow. She thought about her eating habits over the past few weeks. When Melissa had been here they’d eaten well every night. Melissa was a great cook. And before that Elliot had prepared her delicious meals. Cooking had never been Anna’s strong point. Since Melissa had left, she’d mainly lived on simple pasta dishes or oven food. Sometimes, especially when stressed, she’d forget to eat.
And she had been stressed lately. What with her run in with Will which had thrown her and made her anxious, Melissa moving out and the pressures of her book needing to be finished, things had been difficult. Anna realised that she’d been neglecting herself and not really eating properly.
To take part in WIPpet Wednesday just post on your blog your recent writing work. Then add your name to this linky. Rule: the amount of your excerpt you share must relate in some way to the date.
Big thanks to K. L. Schwengel for being lovely and hosting all us crazy WIPpeteers. 🙂
