Weekend Writing Warrior – 3/29/15

Here are eight more from  my work in progress, Play Dates. It’s a contemporary romance about a woman whose little niece helps her snag the man of her dreams.


“You know, you have to pick your battles,” he said with a rueful shake of his head. “I fought it to start, but then you realize it just doesn’t matter. I mean, girls play with trucks and Legos and stuff, right?”

“Was that supposed to somehow sound less sexist?”

He had the good grace to wince. “In my head it sounded better.” Rocking back on his heels, he shot her a sidelong glance and dropped his voice to a conspiratorial whisper. “I haven’t done this in a while.”


That’s all I have for now. Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warrior posts here.

Happy Sunday!

  1. Aw, he sounds sweet! At least he realises when his words don’t come out as they should!

  2. There is nothing more attractive than a man who’s honest. Fabulous excerpt, Maggie! Can’t wait for more! 🙂

  3. You can almost hear his pulse speed up and feel him sweat it a little bit. Love a guy who’s got such great potential!

  4. At least he’s trying, right? And lots of people put their foot in their mouth when they’re nervous.
