Weekend Writing Warriors - WIP New York Minute - #8Sunday


Just signed up for the newest installment of Weekend Writing Warriors. This will take place of the Six Sunday and even better ... now it's EIGHT!  All you have to do is sing up on the linky at the link above (click the banner). Next, post 8 sentences from your WIP. Lastly, visit other participants, coment, and have fun!

Today, I will share from a WIP titled New York Minute. I've had a lot of fun with this one, but it's on hold as I edit other works. What better way then to start at the beginning:

Every time Veronica’s friend concocted some ridiculous scheme on how to meet men, she blackmailed Veronica to partake in it. This particular plan was over-the-top. Chloe should know that Veronica was an on-the-border agoraphobic. In fact, just thinking about meeting men in this way practically gave her hives.
“I can’t believe you’re making me do this,” Veronica groaned.
Chloe looped her hand through Veronica’s elbow to keep her from escaping. “It’ll be fun. Maybe you’ll meet the man of your dreams.”

  2. Oh, the joys of the friend who drags you places you don't want to go. Sounds like the beginning of what will likely become a memorable evening for her. ;)

    And I agree--terrific opening line.

  7. Good start. I recommend putting Chloe's name in the first sentence. I'm looking forward to seeing this develop and hoping Veronica does meet the man of her dreams.

  8. Veronica sounds like a very shy girl, but has that crazy, outgoing friend. Haha. I can definitely relate. I can't wait to see how she'll react when she meets a guy.
