Weekend Writing Warriors: 05/19/13 Speed Date: A Wickedly Good Wine


Welcome back to the Weekend Writing Warriors again. I’m so enjoying seeing my old friends and finding new authors.


Once again I’m taking my 8 from my new WIP, Speed Date.  I’ve skipped ahead in this scene:  Roberta is at Gabriel’s apartment for dinner, although she’s only just met him.  In this scene, he’s just handed her a glass of wine.

I sniffed the bouquet—this was a wickedly good wine—but instead of sipping, I couldn’t stop myself from glancing to see if he had tasted his yet.

“I promise you it’s not poisoned.  Nor does it have any sort of drug to induce you to have wild passionate sex with me tonight.”  His tone was amused, but something in his eyes suggested he would not turn down such an offer should I care to make one.  Which was flattering.  At thirty-two, I had not had many such invitations.  Cautiously I took a sip.

“I wait until the second date to bring those drugs out.”

Thanks so much for coming by!  I’ll be back next week with 8 more, but for the summer, until I’ve finished the several manuscripts I’m working on, I’m taking a semi-hiatus by alternating weeks between WWW and Sweet Saturday Samples.  I guess a vacation is always a good thing. 🙂
