Weekend Writing Warriors #114!

Hello, my friends! Happy Sunday to you! I get the impression that most of you prefer Charlie the clown to Joe the online gamer. Well, give the guy a chance. ;) You may still hate him, but there will be other choices to make once we near the end of this scene. So without further ado, let's hop to it!

Here's the blurb for Adventures in Online Dating: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you! :-D

And here's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 

“Pretty much.” He laughed—an incredibly obnoxious laugh—and for the first time he took a drink from his own mug of death. “I play a lot of shooter games, but I don’t just gank everyone I see.”
            “Excuse me?”
            Another arrogant laugh and another flex of bicep.
            “Go around and kill,” he explained.
            She blinked. “You kill people?”
            “Thousands of ‘em.”

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

So last Sunday I met my new baby nephew for the first time. My friends, it was bliss. I held that tiny little guy in my arms for close to two hours, and I spent the entire time flipping back and forth between laughing and crying or doing both simultaneously. I might be slightly biased, but I've never seen a cuter baby in all my life. He's absolutely perfect and I am one seriously proud (and emotional) auntie. Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead! :)

  1. Move on, girl, and fast or call the cops.Kinky eight.

  2. Oh dear, move on quickly, this guy's a jerk who still thinks he's 12!

  3. Wow, this guy might require more house-training than he's worth. �� Might be worth keeping around for entertainment value for at least a few weeks.

    Glad you got to properly schnoogle the nephew. Babies are the best!

  4. He's not doing so well... Bragging about (even virtual) kills on a first date? Classy. o_O

  5. Arrogant and obnoxious does not bode well for this 'clown,' I believe! Congrats on the beautiful baby nephew - I bet you are one adorable auntie!

  6. I think if she's not a gamer into ganking, she should give this guy a pass and go back to the clown, who I still adore. Fun snippet though!

  7. Now this is a man who know how to impress a lady!

  8. He missed the 'social charm' queue altogether. Ew!

  9. I'm not sure why I find the gamer funny. Poor thing is lacking in social skills and is probably a nice guy. Just not for her.

  10. Since I know some semi-serious gamers I understand the lingo... not that I'd want to hear about kills on a first date, lol. She's going to have to think seriously about this. Mazel Tov on your little nephew.
