Weekend Writing Warrior – 12/6/15

Posted on Dec 6, 2015 by Maggie Wells   12 Comments | Posted in Blog

Whoa! December already? Sheesh. Where did this year go? For those of you still reading along, here are some more tidbits from  LOVE AND ROCKETS (Coastal Heat #3) Coming in October 2016!


Luckily, Grace was still more little girl than teenager. She ducked her head and pressed it into the crook of Darla’s neck, seeking comfort in the same place she’d found it since the day she came into the world. Darla brushed the heavy dark curls away from her baby’s face and sighed. “I’m sorry, baby.”
“So embarrassing,” Grace mumbled, but to Darla’s relief, her daughter relaxed into the caress.

“I’m your mom. Embarrassing you is in the job description.”

“You excel at it.”

Resting her cheek atop Gracie’s head, Darla smiled. “I’ve always been an overachiever. No one can screw up as big as your mama, kiddo.”

    Oh, my heart. I adore this scene. So real, and you can feel the love between them. I just wanna hug them! 😀

    Such a sweet moment- Darla is really great at connecting with her not-so-little girl.

    Putting on my moderator hat, I have to mention that you have 11 sentences here and our limit is 10. Normally we delete links from our linky list if somebody goes over 10, but you’re usually good about counting so we’ll leave you a reminder this week without deleting. 🙂

      Sorry, Christina! I’m usually so careful about counting. I’ll double check my future posts to be sure. Thanks!

    I really enjoyed this little snippet between mother and daughter – sweet, with a little gentle humour

    You never quite outgrow your mom–or needing her comfort every now and then.

    You’ve already made it so obvious that Darla is a great mom and that there’s so much true affection between her and her daughter. Can’t wait to learn more about their lives.
