Weekend Writing Warriors – Magic Milkshakes 5

September 21, 2014

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

I’m continuing on with another snippet from a short story draft I wrote back in June, mostly after I got back from the Young Gunns workshop in Kansas. It was based on a story idea I shared back in the A-Z April challenge: Magic Milkshakes. This is still Danielle talking with her friend Irene.

“I can’t seem to concentrate on the homework,” Danielle admitted.

“Me neither, which is why I think I’ll drop by the party after all. Don’t stress about the milkshake thing–It’s not that big a deal, I was just curious.”

“Aren’t you going to even ask me to come along?”

“You want me to ask you–to blow off a night of studying and come to a party with me? A party that you already refused an invite on from a pretty cute boy?”

“Well, I’m allowed to change my mind, aren’t I? I just said I wasn’t able to concentrate on studying.”

“I don’t see why you’re so upset about these milkshakes.” Danielle’s best friend Irene pushed her geography textbook away across the library table. “If anybody’s got a legitimate beef about them, it’s me. I mean, I only wanted a taste, and she practically wrestled me away from the table. Speaking of which, I thought we said next time you were going to bring some away ‘to go.'”

“Um, yeah. Once I had a taste, I guess I forgot. I’m really sorry.”

“I told him that I had a lot of studying to get through, and counter-offered with a study date at the library. Mister Matthew Brown declined that offer, Big surprise.”

“Are you still going to the library?”

“Yeah, I guess, if that’s okay.”

“Certainly.”

“I’ll be back by eleven.”

“I can always trust on you to do the responsible thing.” Mom shook her head slightly as she left the room.

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Well, I’m in Toronto this weekend for Fan Expo, and the power of scheduled posts brings you this snippet from last Monday! I’m continuing on with a snippet from a short story draft I wrote back in June, mostly after I got back from the Young Gunns workshop in Kansas. It was based on a story idea I shared back in the A-Z April challenge: Magic Milkshakes.

Snippet 1

Track season was over, so she didn’t need to worry about sticking to her peak hurdling weight–for a little while.

“Thanks Mom.” She inhaled another hit of chocolate and cream.

“So, any big plans for tonight?”

“Just hitting the books.”

“You didn’t hear from Matt?”

“Actually, not that it’s any of your business, but yes, Matt called. He invited me to come along to some crazy party at one of his friends’ house.”

Ninja Spotlight: Patti Nielson

July 3, 2012

Hi everybody – it’s Spotlight time, and I’m glad to present an interview with Patti Nielson:
Are you ready if there is a zombie apocalypse?
Most definitely. I’ve got a good supply of toilet paper, and lots of peanut butter, so I’ll be good to go. Although I might have to re-evaluate my supply of knives and flame throwers.

Are you allergic to anything, and if so, what?
No allergies, but I think it would be good for my waist to be allergic to chocolate.

If you had one day left to live, what’s one thing you’d want to spend that time on?
I would definitely want to spend time on my family watching the perfect sunset from the top of a mountain.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and have concocted stories since I was little. It was kind of secret hobby, but slowly I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and letting people read my words. I write YA and MG fantasy, since I grew up loving those kinds of books. When I’m not trying to knock out words on my laptop, I’m either figuring out which how to manage which way my three kids need to go, working part time at a Foresenic Engineering firm, or on the soccer pitch trying to score. I hope to be playing until I’m an old lady, but I think my body might have other ideas. Good thing you don’t have to be able to run to write a book
