After a brief post-Camp Nano slump, I am finding new inspiration to write. The words are coming, slowly but surely. This time the focus is on quality over quantity. I have to remind myself that a few good words worth keeping is better than a thousand words that will need to be trashed.
In today’s snippet, Matt reflects about the day that he spent with Olivia. She was painting Felker’s Falls, her first real outdoor painting, when he snapped a picture of her.
But he wanted her to see that picture and see how wonderful she is. Of course he doesn’t say stuff like that, it’s too cheesy, and the thought of it gives him goosebumps. That’s why he takes photos.
This is a snippet from my contemporary novel titled Together We Will Live Forever (tentative.) Olivia is a neuroscience grad student and an aspiring artist. Matt works at the art gallery and lives with his daughter, Zelda.
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. Today’s WIPpet Math: Today is August 9th (8/9). There are 198 characters (98 for the date, reversed, and 1 for the difference between.) As you can see, part of the fun is figuring out the math and making it sound intelligent 🙂
Be sure to check out some of the other lovely WIPpet snippets here. Thank you Emily Wrayburn for hosting.
