Weekend Writing Warriors - WIP New York Minute #8Sunday

Another week of 8! I will continue with New York Minute
Chloe has dragged Veronica to a Speed Dating event. Veronica is not happy.

Taking a deep breath, she wound her way to her seat which happened to be an intimate table with two bucket seats. She scooted in and picked up the pen that sat next to the cocktail menu and stared at her Speeding Ticket. Ten to twelve dates? She couldn’t even pretend that she was a people-person for two minutes, how would she do this for an hour and a half? She looked in her friend’s direction, and Chloe waved her fingers, crossing her legs to try  to look prim and proper. Funny that they both had to act like someone they weren’t.
When the doors open and the men entered, the room quieted. All the women checked out their potential dates like they were in a meat market. Veronica’s heart drummed in her chest and her palms began to sweat. Just great.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow, she's in for a long session, with that many dates! Interesting story, can't wait to read more.

  2. I love this. Your heroine and mine would get along great! I love putting a non-people person in a situation where she has to be social. Can't wait to read more

  3. Sounds like you've got her in an uncomfortable situation, Melinda. Can't wait to see who she meets!

  4. Fantastic! I was laughing out loud as I read. "Funny that they both had to act like someone they weren't." Greatest line I've read this weekend.

  5. I think she'll end up having fun even if she doesn't connect with anyone. That is, if she'll give it a chance. At least it's only a couple of minutes per guy, not a whole date with these strangers.
