Weekends means Rainbow Snippets-time here on the blog, since I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. According to their description, “it’s a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction—a WIP or a finished work of even 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).”
Today’s snippet is a continuation from last week. Here’s the link if you need to be reminded.
And I know, I know. It’s more than 6 sentences. Sue me 😉
The visitor knocked again, a little harder this time. I groaned, put the book down, and contemplated pretending I wasn’t home. Who was visiting at—I glanced at my watch—nine thirty a Friday night anyway? I’d carefully trained everyone I knew to always call or text before coming over.
Sighing, I ran my fingers through my hair and tucked the unruly strands behind my ears. If the lights hadn’t been on, I would have ducked down in front of the couch with my hands over my ears and ignored whoever was banging on my door. Instead, I got up, marched through my house, and yanked the door open a little more forcefully than strictly necessary.
And just like that, my world came to a halt.
My WIP is coming along nicely, but I have to kick it up a notch because I’ve got a deadline approaching. I have a tentative title for it, Promise me we’ll be okay, but I haven’t decided 100% yet. What do you think? 🙂
