Happy Sunday! It’s the best day of the week because today my fellow writing warriors and I get to share eight to ten sentences from what we’ve been writing. Check out the official site at http://www.wewriwa.com and enjoy reading the various posts.
In November I shared weekly snippets from my NaNoWriMo novel, Blood Moon. Now that December is here and Blood Moon is undergoing extensive rewrites (ugh), I’m going to switch gears and share some bits of the story I was working on in October. The first draft isn’t quite finished but so far, it’s been a fun story to tell.
What could be worse than a break-up? Zombies…
Amy snatched the chocolate bars from my grip as if not even chocolate could put everything right in the world again.
“I don’t know why you’re so surprised,” I said with a sulk, “It’s not like this hasn’t been a long time coming. Edgar and I were never right for each other.”
“Edgar pushed you to face a side of yourself that you didn’t want to see.”
She stopped when she saw the look of horror in my eyes. It wasn’t in Amy’s nature to be so desperate and cruel. Why did she care so much if I broke up with Edgar or any other guy for that matter?
“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that,” she said. Then, much to my relief, she dropped the candy bars into my cart and shoved her hands deep into her pockets.
As always, I look forward to your feedback as I continue writing my story. Now, be sure to hop over to http://www.wewriwa.com and check out my fellow authors and I will see you again next week!

Wait– do you mean chocolate doesn’t make everything right in the world? lol Enjoyed the snippet. 🙂
Well… It is a work of fiction, after all. 😜 Thanks for reading!
Interesting excerpt…I love zombie stories and I love chocolate so I’m happy!
Wow, something chocolate can’t put right. That’s bad!
ROTFL — “as if not even chocolate could put everything right in the world again”
Man oh man, does this have me asking questions….why is Amy so upset if Edgar broke up with our narrator? Weird unrequited love thing? And with whom? Or is there something else at work? I wanna knooooooowww!
