Weekend Writing Warriors – Measuring Alien Love on a Kitchen Scale 1

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Thanks for all the great comments on ‘Return to Civilization!’ But I’m going to switch to one of the rough drafts that I was working on in Nano this year. This is from the scene where Gordon, my MC, is meeting Vanessa for dinner; he met her at the Earthling chamber of commerce a few scenes earlier.


“Hey, Gordon, you’re here already!”

I looked up to see Vanessa, dressed in a bright red dress with a miniskirt hem, long sleeves, and a high collar, with little cut-outs around the shoulder. She had her hair gathered up into a poufy tail behind her head. “Um, yeah, I wanted to get here early to scout out the place by myself,” I admitted, and checked the chrono on the table menu. “You thought you’d be the first to get here early?”

She chuckled. “Yeah, I guess so. Gordon Wyatt, I’d like you to meet Doomah.”

  1. Doomah? Intriguing with the description of a pretty girl and then. . .What happens next? Good eight.


  2. Hmmm…who is Doomah? And why did she bring Doomah along? I love the description of her hair. Good 8! 🙂


  3. Doomah’s got me intrigued as well, great description of the heroine and what she’s wearing! Excellent excerpt…

    Great character description, could be an awkward moment?

    Why does everyone want to get there early? Simple nervousness, or sinister plans? o.O

    Certainly sounds as if she had to think of a plausible reason for getting there early – makes me wonder why she has this Doomah with her. Very intriguing.

    I, too, was like, “Who is Doomah??” So i guess I must wait to find out. 🙂
