Hello Hump Day everyone!
WIPpet Wednesdays is a blog hop where writers can share a snippet from their WIP (Work in Progress). The only stipulation is that the excerpt is somehow related to the date. In this case, I am posting 6 paragraphs from chapter 14 (for June 14th)
My current project is a new-adult contemporary novella titled Together We Will Live Forever (tentative.) It tells the story of Olivia, a neuroscience grad student and an aspiring artist, and Matt, a single father who works at an art gallery. This scene takes place in a park:
Olivia’s mouth curled up into an amused smile. “Don’t tell me, you’re scared of dogs?”
Matt felt warmth rush to his face. Charlie wasn’t just a dog. He was a huge dog with veiny legs that reminded him of spiders. He shuttered. “No,” he grumbled.
Olivia made a sound, something between a snort and a laugh. “Look at him. He’s so hungry that he would eat anything. And you know what he enjoys feeding on the most?”
He swallowed. “What?”
Matt’s eyes widened. He glanced at the dog, who plucked mouthfuls of grass from the earth, tearing them apart with his teeth, swishing them around in his jaw until they were nothing but mush, before swallowing the clump whole, then repeating the process. Matt’s armpits were wet, his mouth dry.
Interested in reading more? Here is a snippet from last week.
