WipPet Wednesday

I’ve been enjoying the snippets at WIPpet Wednesday, hosted each week at K.L.Schwengel’s blog.

If you’d like to participate, post an excerpt from your WIP on your blog, something that relates to the date in some way. Then add your link above— where you can also read the other excerpts.

This  is my current WIP    -7-1/15 = Chap. 1, 6th page, 15 lines (at least it was in my doc!)

“That’s good to know. Well, thank you for that information. I will be sure to tell Jenny.” Emma made to slide out on her side, when she was pulled back.

     The waitress arrived then with their wine. She poured a bit for Flynn and he sniffed it, then took a sip.He nodded and the waitress poured them each a glass. Flynn took his glass and held it up. “Let’s toast to being true to one’s self.”

     Emma picked up her glass and clinked glasses with him. He watched as she drank a sip. She most definitely was not being true to herself. She put her wine glass down. She really had to leave. This man caused the fluttering to turn to explosions.

     “I wonder, what would you have done if things got say, carried away?”  Flynn put his glass down and then his lips descended on hers, as if in slow motion. His back was to the room and she hoped he blocked the view of his plunder of her lips. At least there was some privacy.

  1. Welcome to WIPpet Wednesday!! 😀 Glad to have you. Nice excerpt, too. Anything that has someone named Flynn wins points. And this “his plunder of her lips” Ooooh…I love that.
