Weekend Writing Warrior – 10/6/13

Today’s post comes for V is for Vindicated – one of my two contributions to Love Letters Volume 6: Cowboy’s Command (October 21st from Carina Press).



His limp was more pronounced than she expected, but she didn’t let her dismay show. The last thing he’d ever accept from her was pity. Each slow, uneven step he took tied her stomach in knots. Lines etched by months of pain and endurance became starkly visible as he approached, each one a startling contrast to his youth and vitality.

It seemed a lifetime passed before the toes of his boots scuffed hers. He stared at his hand as if it had seceded from the union, giving his head a bewildered shake as he raised it. Warmth and affection shot those gunmetal eyes through with silver. “You always were the damnedest girl.”

  1. Great amount of description worked into the action–so much about the characters in a few sentences. And the phrase about his hand ‘seceding’ captures his reluctant attraction wonderfully–and made me smile.
