Weekend Writing Warriors #160!

Greetings, friends and warriors! Welcome back! I'll be sharing a few final excerpts from Adventures in Online Dating, so enjoy 'em while they last!

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:

“C’mon,” he said, his hand still on her arm. “We’ll grab a seat at the corner table. It’s more private.”
            She obediently did as he said, wondering just how bold and blunt the man would be in a more secluded setting. Sydney took a seat, expecting him to sit across from her like most guys would do on a first date. But not this guy. Instead, he dragged his chair to within inches of hers, crowding her in a way that strangely felt more inviting than invasive.
            “Hey, you know what?” he asked as he tucked a tendril of hair behind her ear. “You are the sexiest woman I’ve seen in thirteen years.”
            How...specific. 

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


Last Sunday I had the pleasure of attending my baby nephew's first birthday party, during which time I witnessed enough baby hugs to make my ovaries burst. Cuteness overload! Also, since there were so many babies on the premises, it was essentially a germ factory. I'm surprised I only managed to catch a cold once the festivities concluded, but it was worth it just to be there to help my sweet boy celebrate being on this Earth for a whole year. Besides the cold, I'm feeling much better these days, both emotionally and physically. Again, I can't thank you all enough for the support you've given me these past several weeks. I finally have a Sunday off so I'll be making the rounds today! Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead! :)

  1. I don't like this guy. No way! Run for the hills, girl.

    Ovary overload? Hysterical Tick tock tick tock, my friend. BTW, your mom will never leave you. Mine has been gone many many years and she's still with me.

  6. Oh wow...I'm uncomfortable just reading it. lol. I want to push away his chair. And there's that creepy 13 year thing???

    I can't believe your nephew is a year old. I think I remember you gushing about him when he was born. Hugs, Evelyn. One day at a time. :-)

  7. Hmm, wonder if this level of forwardness comes with a matching sense of expectation and entitlement? Creep alert!

  8. How specific, indeed. I'm guessing he's the touchy-feely ex-con?

    1. That's a very astute guess, Ed. I think you may be on to something. ;)

  9. That is very weirdly specific. And there are very few good reasons for him to have, I'm guessing, not seen any (or many) woman for so long...

  10. That is a very specific time-frame, which just ups the creepiness to eleven, thought Sydney seems into it. So, good for her, I guess :-) Happy late birthday to your nephew.
