Snippet Sunday #11 Afterwards


Weekend Writers

Ugh–I forgot to sign up for Weekend Writing Warriors, though I’m still posting. Don’t want to let the tradition die. 🙂 And of course, #SnippetSunday on Facebook is still going strong. From Swashbuckler, my WIP, this week’s snippet happens a bit after where we left off last Sunday. Rodger (hero) hasn’t called Rachel (heroine) after their incredible night together. As always, your comments and feedback and appreciated!!!

Rachel’s stomach clenched in familiar disappointment. Was there something wrong with her? She didn’t go out often, but she couldn’t remember the last time she’d had a second date with a man.

Logic tried to intervene, reminding Rachel she’d known Rodger was a one-night stand.  And hadn’t she wanted it that way? Hadn’t she secretly hoped to have a wild fling with Rodger Conrad?

Logic didn’t have a chance and was chucked out the metaphorical window. Emotions ruled the heart, after all. There was a small part of her, a very small part hoping last night was the first of something more to come.  It was the same small part that still believed in princesses and fairies and happy-ever-after. 

Here’s a link to the blurb for Swashbuckler >

  1. Oh, nice. The only thing that tripped me up was “metaphorical”. I think it would be stronger without that word, and we will understand that it’s not a physical window.

    Nice job. I love what you’re doing with the inner monologue.

  2. This excerpt reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:

    “Love has reasons which reason cannot understand.” — Blaise Pascal

    But in this case, is it really love?

    Nice snippet!

  3. Awww…this made my heart sink a little. Great job of showing that inner wrestle between logic and emotion. I could totally feel her angst.
