I asked my pal Laurie whether she wanted 5 things or 5 lines for this week’s Monday Mayhem post. She asked for a sneak peek at something I’m working on. So, because her wish is my command, I am sharing 5 lines from a story that I currently have out on submission called Jump Into Love. Meet Lang….
A few strange women had flitted in and out of Langley Sheppard’s life in the last few months, but not one of them had a bizarre fixation on chewing gum like tonight’s winner. Squinting through the sleet-spattered windshield, he attempted to peer into the harsh glare spilling from the glass storefront of the T-N-T mini-mart, hoping to catch sight of his date. The multitude of neon signs crowding the spotless expanse lit the puddles of slush in carnival colors. The store’s owner, Max Merida, believed in the laws of plenty. Plenty of light, plenty of cheesy merchandise crammed onto narrow counters, and plenty of mark-up built into every price. Apparently,his date believed in having plenty of gum.
Okay, so I threw in a bonus line. I just wanted to finish the thought.
So how about you? Got any big goings on this week?
