It’s the weekend, so you know it’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors, when authors share an 8-line snippet from their work (or a work in progress). I had so fun last weekend I knew I had to share another 8 lines this weekend.
Below is an except from A Heart’s Promise. In this story, Trish’s friendliness has gotten her into a pickle, and as she is trying to figure out what to do, a new rancher in the area, Dalton, notices her and asks if she’s okay.
She crossed her arms in mock indignity. “I’m pretty sure eavesdropping on ladies’ thoughts will get you kicked out of the White Hat Club.”
He shrugged. “Their meetings are pretty boring.”
“I know, right? It’s all ‘I saved this damsel, I saved that kitten’—we’ve heard it all before. Where’s the excitement?”
“In the Black Hat Club, naturally,” he said.
So is Dalton really a member of the Black Hat Club? You’ll have to check out A Heart’s Promise. Come back next weekend for another 8-line snippet.
