Weekend Writing Warrior – 9/28/14

Posted on Sep 28, 2014 by Maggie Wells   9 Comments | Posted in Blog

Had a great time at the Diamond State Romance Authors writing retreat last weekend. Clocked over 8k in three days, and now I am within striking distance of finishing the first draft of Full Court Press! Here are another eight:

Poor Brittany glanced down at the tablet in her lap, obviously trying to find the spot in her notes where she lost the thread. Kate almost felt sorry for the young reporter. Like she did when she pounded a Division II school in the preseason using only her second stringers. True champions showed mercy for the teams they outmatched, but she wasn’t about to trade courtesy baskets with a journalist who so clearly had an agenda of her own.

They’d set up this interview for one reason and one reason only. To give someone with a bigger audience than Jim Davenport the scoop. It was time to stop playing cat and mouse with the poor girl. It was just too bad she’d chosen Kate’s man as a stepping stone.

Thanks for reading! Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warriors postings this week. 🙂

    Dynamic inner thoughts for Kate. I’d hate to be on the receiving side. Super eight!

    Kate doesn’t sound like the kind of woman I’d want to go up against. Great characterization

    Intriguing last line and nice flow to the writing.

    She’s a tough cookie and that poor journalist is way overmatched. Great excerpt!

    Having ambition doesn’t necessarily mean you can live up to your hopes, as Brittany is finding out. No pity for her learning experience from Kate!
