Weekend Writing Warriors – Measuring Alien Love on a Kitchen Scale 8

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’s telling them a bit of his family history…

“I went to a chef’s college in Paris once I graduated from secondary school,” I continued. “That’s where I met Tommy; he was one year ahead of me. I studied there for two years, and there was a charity cook-off the summer after that. Tommy and I both participated. He got runner-up, and I didn’t place nearly as well. Mom and I got into a big fight afterwards; she and Dad both came to watch the quarter-finals, but I’d washed out before they arrived. I stormed off to the airport with nothing but a computer tablet and credit chip, took the first flight I could get a seat on, signed up for university without even caring where I’d landed. A few weeks later, some movers showed up with all of my stuff from Paris.”

  1. Getting to university is a very smart way to run away.


  2. Interesting life this person has had so far. Great snippet!

    At least they sent his furniture to him, I guess… There’s something rather cold about only showing up for the quarter-finals, as if he wasn’t worth it if he didn’t get that far–nice detail, it suggests so much.

    Gordon has made some interesting life choices so far…seems a bit impulsive.
