Weekend Writing Warriors #150!

Happy holidays, my fellow warriors! After I write this post, I'll be packing up and hitting the road to enjoy Christmas with my family. :) But for you, my warrior family, I leave this gift: a new excerpt from Adventures in Online Dating! 

Here's the blurb:  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: 

His pace quickened and she tottered on her heels to keep up with him. “Where you off to in such a hurry?”
            “Gonna call it quits a bit early today. I have something more important to do.”
            Was that more innuendo? “Did you know that you can drive away while an officer’s writing you a parking ticket? I mean, like, if they haven’t actually done the deed and put the ticket on your windshield, and if they don’t get it written by the time you drive off, they’re SOL...which is actually kind of funny if you think about it because....”
            “So why didn’t you try it?” he interrupted her, thank God. 

            She took a deep breath and stopped moving, forcing him to jerk to a stop as well. “It was more fun trying to convince you not to write it.”

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

I wish you all a wonderful, magical holiday season filled with all your favourite things! I'm so grateful to each and every one of you for continuing to support my writing and visiting my blog every week. May 2016 be a fruitful year for all of us! :)

  3. Love, love love this snippet. . .the way she runs on talking and I hope there's something good here.
    For all of us, success,health, and happiness in the coming year. If you need a flower girl, I'm in.

  4. I love the way the characters are so vivid, their personalities portrayed perfectly through the dialogue. This is a great pair! Hope they get together in the end. Merry Christmas!

  5. This is one of my favorite snippets so far. Their dialogue doesn't feel forced at all. It's just a completely natural extension of their interactions thus far. Loving it!

  6. Very funny! Enjoyed the snippet and I hope you enjoy every moment of Christmas with the family. :-)

  7. Their conversation is so interesting, with the twists and turns it's taking! Great snippet...

  8. Hah! She's being funny.
    Though I had heard if they've started the ticket, it's yours--and they'll just mail it to you.
