When I sit down to a blank page and conquer it, I feel like a warrior.
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop where several authors converge to share snippets of their current work. I’m excited to have discovered this blog hop and to be participating in it for the first time, especially while knee deep in NaNoWriMo, because it’s a wonderful way to share what’s growing on the page. If you are interested in participating or checking it out, visit the official page at http://www.wewriwa.com.
My ten sentences come from my project tentatively titled “Blood Moon, a paranormal romance. Hunter is determined to get his life back to ‘normal’. His roommate Jake is the only one who can help him. What he doesn’t realize is that he’s about to meet the woman who will turn it all upside down again.
Jake sat at the breakfast table eating a jelly doughnut, white powdered sugar all over the front of him. With a sigh, Hunter grabbed the roll of paper towels and tossed them over at Jake before pouring himself a cup of the steaming, hot liquid.
“I swear you are a two year-old trapped in the body of a thirty year-old.”
Jake grinned showing off the doughnut stuck between his teeth and Hunter shook his head.
“Any news?” Hunter asked as he grabbed one of the chocolate glaze donuts and settled into the seat across from Jake. Jake leaned back and brushed his hands together sending a shower of powdered sugar fall down across his lap. Hunter resisted the urge to reach over and clean him up.
“Yes, we’ve managed to track him into the eastern hills. I’m planning to scope out the area later tonight.”
“I’m coming with you.”
“You’re staying here,” Jake corrected, “Need I remind you what happened last time you insisted on tagging along?”
I look forward to your thoughts.
Now be sure to hop over to http://www.wewriwa.com and follow the links to the other author blogs. Happy reading!

Welcome to the blog, Stephanie. You’ve made the doughnut into a third character in this scene. Also, you’ve given me the urge to made a late run to Dunkin Doughnuts, darn you!
lol Sorry about that. But hey, eating a doughnut is not a bad way to pass a Sunday afternoon. 😉 Thank you for the welcome! I didn’t manage to get through the other blogs yesterday but I’m looking forward to reading all the posts today. What an awesome idea this blog hop is!
I like the sense you get of Hunter’s personality. Love the responsible, caregiver type.
Thank you 🙂 I hope my main character feels the same way when she meets him!
Ooh, now I’m wondering what did happen the last time to warrant Hunter having to stay in. Great snippet!
Thank you! 🙂 It seems that wherever Hunter goes, trouble follows. hee hee

Good character building, Stephanie. I particularly like the two year old caught in the thirty year old body. Nicely done. And welcome to the warriors. 🙂
