Share Time Thursday – Why? I Was feeling Saucy


Greetings Everyone!

If you look to your left you will see my pride and joy, Zeus. He helps me with my writing… okay he rubs on my fingers so I can’t type, but he thinks he’s helping. He also “helps” me read too ;o)

Okay. Truth. I have no idea what to blog about and I didn’t want to have a week with just one post. I have to keep trying to be more regular with my posts, so I thought I’d share some writing today, so y’all could get an idea of what I’m about…err, what my writing’s about ;o) As if that’s hard to figure out… Muh ha ha

So this is what I wrote last night. It’s a scene where the MC Snow and Vaughn are on a date, sort of… I’m not looking for critique’s unless you want to. Mostly just wanted to have share time today ;o)

So, here ya go.

I grabbed a green crayon out of the miniature ridged plastic glass and tried to draw a flower on the paper tablecloth with our server’s name scrawled across it.

A large sign that said Pizzalicious blinked in neon red. I was convinced the joint was owned by a couple of hillbillies. A fake stained glass ghetto light hung over the table looking like a bug could fall from it at any time.

I shifted in the yellow faux leather booth, making plastic farting noises with my legs. “Where’d you find this place?”

“A friend told me about it.”

I picked up the ratty menu and scanned it. “You know what this place needs?”

He turned his menu over. “What?”

“Boxed Wine. Oh wait.” I pointed to the menu. “Look it’s already here. Yay for us.”

He cocked his head to the side, clicking his tongue on the roof of his mouth. “Is there anything you do like here?”

“I like this crayon.”

Please keep in mind this is total first draft mode. I’m revising and needed some new scenes. It might get cut, who knows, but thought I would share!

I have 150 followers! Wow – you guys are great!

I’ll see you tomorrow for the Friday Featured Blog ;o) Enjoy your Thursday!

  1. My cat is Gypsy — Gypsy, the warrior princess. She demanded her avatar on my blog be a tiger. If you left-click your cursor over her avatar, she will purr. But careful. She has a tendency to pounce on your cursor and eat it. Warrior Princesses!

    I have put another post on my blog : WHAT STAR TO STEER BY, inspired by the John Masefield poem. I hope you like it. It even has a video of Poe’s “A Dream Within A Dream.” What service!

    Thanks for your kind comments, Roland

  2. Cute pic, and you made me hungry for pizza even though the place you described doesn’t sound too wholesome.

  3. I think I’ve been there, on a date no less. LOL. Except I wasn’t allowed to order anything but breadsticks and I had to share!

    I think it’s great to see tidbits of your work. You’re voice is really strong. These little peeks are always so exciting.

  4. Roland – Gypsy! I love it. Will definitely check it out! Thank you ;o)

    Medeia – Thanks, he’s sort of famous, was on author Janet Evanovich’s website once ;o) Yeah, Luckily, this place is all in my mind, however I did go to a Chinese restaurant and something fell on my head… Gah. Horrible time! Thanks!

    Heidi – LOL- oh no! Dang, no pizza even? That sucks. I do love the breadsticks though.

    Thank you for reading ;o) I agree, I love to read other people’s stuff ;o)
