Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/22/15

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Maggie Wells   8 Comments | Posted in Blog

One last dose of Full Court Press. Next week, I hope to have fresh new words to share!

“I’d be happy to offer any advice you might need.” She pitched her voice loud enough for their audience to hear. “You know where to find my office, right? Straight down the hall past the four NCAA championship trophies and turn right at Naismith awards.”

Turning her brilliant smile on the rapt reporters, she gave a jaunty wave and bounded up the steps, her long legs eating up concrete with the same gusto she’d exerted in smashing his ego.

“Oh, and if you reach the case with my old jerseys and the Olympic team photo, you’ve gone too far, but you’ll find your way eventually.” She nodded to the reporters and the Athletic Director then homed in on him once more. “Welcome to Wolcott, Coach.”

That’s it for this week! Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warrior posts!

    She sounds very sassy! Full of spunk. And unlike Lou Grant, I love spunk! Great intro to the character.

    She’s bouncing off the walls with energy. I’d follow her anywhere. Terrific eight.

    That’s a different and very effective method for name-dropping! I like it, and the character. Excellent snippet!

    Ouch. Someone just received their just desserts! At least he won’t get lost if he does look for her, right?

    I really liked this! My first time on weekend writing warriors, and this was a fun piece to start with. I love how much personality and attitude you convey in just 8 sentences!

    Whoa! She sure knows how to take someone down a peg or ten. And all said with a smile too. Quite the woman there.
