Weekend Writing Warrior – 12/29/13

Posted on Dec 29, 2013 by Maggie Wells   10 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 more sentences from The Art Lover:

“Like this? Naked?”

“Nude,” she corrected automatically. “We call them nudes.”

She plucked three tubes of paint from the chest before gathering the ones they left scattered on the drop cloth. Kelsy scooped a gob of paint from the dropcloth and slapped it onto her palette. Mitch might have admired the brisk economy of her movements if he wasn’t absolutely terrified by the notion that she thought he would pose for her.

“Arms back over your head, please,” she ordered.

Coming soon!

    I remember drawing nudes in art class in college. I was about 5 years older then the rest of the students. Didn’t bother me a bit, but some of their faces? Fear. It amused me for sure. Great snippet!

    Strictly business for her. All he wants is monkey business. Good eight. Happy New Year.

    She doesn’t *think* he’s posing, she *knows* it. He’ll just have to get with the program.

    Some people are more comfortably with nude bodies than others… I’d be blushing for sure.

    I take it, this is not what he had in mind when he disrobed? Funny stuff! I sure hope he likes the resulting work.
