Weekend Writing Warrior – 2/8/15

Posted on Feb 8, 2015 by Maggie Wells   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

Hey all! I’ve been huddled deep in the revision cave working revision on not two, but three manuscripts. I’ve written a new beginning for Full Court Press (the collegiate athletics battle of the sexes story). Here are 8 lines:

“I can’t tell you how proud the entire Wolcott Warrior nation is at this moment…”

The Athletic Director’s words faded to background buzz as Kate Snyder surveyed the crowd assembled in the too-tiny conference room. Never in all her days as a player or a coach had she seen so many media outlets assembled in one spot. Well, maybe when she played in the Olympics, but certainly not on home turf. Women’s athletics didn’t get the big coverage. Granted, she didn’t see Musberger or Costas in the crowd, but National Sports Network had sent their golden boy, Greg Chambers. Something was up. Something juicer than a NCAA title.

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

    I’m in the revision stage on three stories, too. I thought it would be hard but it is actually easier than one at a time. It keeps me motivated.
    I’m intrigued by your snippet

    Normally I have no need of books about sports in my life ever – but since this is you of course I’ll read it and I’m sure I’ll love it! Definitely want to hear more about the golden boy!
