Weekend Writing Warrior – 8/9/15

Posted on Aug 9, 2015 by Maggie Wells   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’ve been writer-lazy this week, and I freely admit it. After the marathon of writing FLIP THIS LOVE, RWA 2015, and a killer week at the day job, I just didn’t have the mojo. But I’ll be back to it this week – starting LOVE & ROCKETS (Coastal Heat #3)! In the meantime, here’s a nice moment from FLIP THIS LOVE:

She paused to take a breath. Swallowing a lifetime full of pride wasn’t exactly easy to do. “I tend to…lash out.”

The gentle hand caressing her cheek helped keep all those embarrassing emotions she had swirling inside her in check. Seconds passed and he didn’t say a word, though she was sure he had some choice ones he could dole out. She was forgiven. It was evident in his tender caress. And when he did speak, the husky timbre of his voice cut straight through to her heart like a buzz saw.

“Who in the world could I want after you, Delaney? Tell me, who?”

    sexy in its simplicity and romantic undertones. I’m having a bit of a lazy weekend myself. I didn’t think I’d be able to do wewriwa so didn’t sign up but I’m having fun reading 🙂

    I love how she knows she’s forgiven before he says it. Every good relationship has some nonverbal communication skills.

    This made me wonder if pride, like revenge, is a meal best eaten cold.
