Weekend Writing Warrior – 11/10/13

Posted on Nov 10, 2013 by Maggie Wells   10 Comments | Posted in Blog

Here’s a bit more from Going Deep:

““You were so snotty to me all through school.”

“I was scared shitless of you.”

“You were condescending and rude,” she retorted.

“Still am.” A wry smile twisted his lips. “And by the time I outgrew being scared, you were way out of my reach.” He framed her face with his hands, his palms cradling her cheeks and his long fingers stroking the tender lobes of her ears. “But you’re not now.”

    Well ok, they got that out of the way! Fun snippet, like the way the scene melted into tenderness on his part…

    Funny how we mask our true feelings. Now she knows how he felt all those years ago. Great eight.

    Awww, that was romantic! You got across well in your writing how slanted we view things and people when we’re in high school.

    Fabulous 8 – I like a guy who can admit to being a little intimidated.

    Why is she no longer out of reach? Is he saying she’s fallen some? 😛

    Nice back and forth conversation–it’s amazing how people can misunderstand each other…

    I wonder if telling her that he can get her now is going to work…
