Welcome to the inaugural post for Weekend Writing Warriors! Thanks to Teresa Cypher for organizing the group for all the Six Sentence Sunday orphans. Also thanks to Karysa Faire for making a Facebook group where we can meet up and share links.
I'm continuing with snippets from Shades of Blue, my coming-of-age/YA/mystery WIP, and I get to share eight sentences now instead of six. Yippee! (You can catch up on the earlier excerpts here) This week you get to meet Sam's step-sister, affectionately known at school as "Backseat Britney." JoJo goes to Sam's house to get him and Britney answers the door.
“Is Sam here?” I said as politely as I could manage.
“He’s busy right now,” Britney replied, flipping her long black hair off her shoulder and leaning in the doorway to block my path.
“Just tell him I’m here, okay?” I felt my temper rising and started counting backward from a hundred--Sam’s latest anger-management suggestion.
“I said he’s busy, little girl,” Britney said. “Go play with your dolls or something.”
I stopped counting and said, “Hey, I heard Ford wants to hire you for their commercials to say their back seats are better than Chevy’s. Maybe they’ll pay you enough to buy yourself a brain.”
Wow, my heroines sure do have a smart mouths, huh? Wonder where they get that from. ;-)
You can buy my other books here, and please also check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors and the Six Sentence Sunday refugees. Something for everyone among these talented writers!
