Weekend Writing Warriors – Measuring Alien Love on a Kitchen Scale 5

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

This week, I’m continuing with the sample chapters of my unfinished Nano. Gordon is surprised to be out to dinner with a beautiful girl and her alien sweetie, and he just asked a slightly rude question about the alien!


“Yes, I’m male, and I’m thirty-seven cycles old, which would be perhaps thirty-four Earth years,” Doomah said. “Is there any other statistical information you need?”

“No, that just about does it, thank you. Umm, your turn to ask questions, I guess; either of you.”

“Well–would it be unforgivable if I asked you about your mother first?” Vanessa asked.

“Not if you let me tell you about her my own way,” I said. “It’s weird to grow up with a mom who’s a celebrity chef.  I wasn’t around for her rise to fame, of course, but I’ve seen most of it on the video archives.”

  1. Oh this is interesting with a touch of humor, my favorite type of story. You’ve tempted this reader to ask for more.

    I like that they are getting to know each other’s backgrounds and talking so freely.

    Hmm. this gets more and more interesting each week. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes.


  4. I find myself wondering what Doomah will make of Gordon’s past, since he gave only statistical info. An interesting situation you’ve established, great snippet!


  5. Is this where the kitchen scale comes in?


  6. Kate Warren says:

    I like that fact that Doomah knows about how many earth years his age would be.


  7. caitlinstern says:

    I love how Doomah responded to that. “Any other statistical information you need?” So calm. 🙂

    Bet the question about his mom is one he gets a lot. He’s probably rehearsed a story by now.


  8. Suzanna says:

    Oh, I can feel the awkward oozing off! I’m looking forward to more!


  9. It must be difficult to know what to ask to Alien. So awkward!


  10. Definitely an odd experience to grow up with a celebrity parent.
