Weekend Writing Warriors, April 7


Chello, fellow fans of the written word! Hope you’re having a great Sunday. I’m excerpting from my WIP, a contemporary romance called The Mason Dixon Line. Not a lot of set-up here, except that this is told from the heroine’s point of view and she’s ticked at our hero:

He’d embarrassed her and he knew it. What’s more, he enjoyed it. He was so damn superior, with his moral rectitude and his above-it-all views about teachers. And cell phones. And shopping. And cable TV and texting. He probably disapproved of sunshine and rain, but he hadn’t gotten around to saying so yet. Now he had the gall to imply she was loose, which she wasn’t — most of the time.

Whoa, I don’t think these two are going to work it out, do you?

For more WeWriWa fun, go here.

About Linda Morris

Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat, and a joke or two thrown in. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.

    I like it! Opposites attract.
    If they don’t make it, you’ve got a story.
    If they DO make it, you’ve got an even better story.
    Sounds like a match made in heaven to me! LOL

  3. I disagree with rain on days that I want to go out! 🙂 I liked the touch at the end with “most of the time”.


  4. I suspect they’ll hit the sheets in no time flat – she’s got the emotional energy in full swing – sexual tension here we come!

  10. He probably disapproved of sunshine and rain… ROFL This is great, lots of tension between these two.


  11. Claire says:

    Eh…they’re just winding the springs a little so the release of all that tension will be that much more spectacular. Wind away!


  12. Oh, I think they’ll work it out all right…right into the bedroom. I see fireworks in their future. 😉 Terrific snippet. Sounds like fab conflict!


  13. Time for her to get out the handcuffs…
