Weekend Writing Warrior – 12/22/13

Posted on Dec 22, 2013 by Maggie Wells   16 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’m working on a re-release of a short story I wrote for the Passionate Exhibitions anthology. Here are 8 sentences from The Art Lover:

“About time you showed up.”

A woman. The intruder was a woman and she’d been expecting him. Irked by the presumptuous amusement in her tone, he stepped into the open doorway and almost swallowed his tongue.

Alarm bells clamored in his head the moment recognition clicked. Kelsy Tecato. Artist in Residence and painter of hard-on-inducing nudes here live and in person, standing in the Templeton Museum after hours as if she owned the place.

Naked as the day she was born.

Coming soon!
