Hi Writers everywhere. We did it. Survival of the fittest conquered the winter storms and spring is here. Crocus planted long ago pushing through fallen crushed leaves to say hello. I smile in response.
Today I share with you my WIP. The story begins in 1948: a journey for a girl and boy where fate and war change their plans for a future life. Titled She Never Said Yes. That’s right, my friends. Not a sequel to She Didn’t Say No. Quite the opposite. I appreciate and respect your comments so jump right in.
Excerpt in eight:
As the only girl flanked by two brothers, I always had to fight for what I wanted so when the most popular boy in high school walked past me today, I knew he had to be my date for the sorority dance coming up soon. Tall, cute with freckles, his smile lit up the third floor hall and something inside me glowed. My organized mind, inherited from Dad, made a plan; catch the guy, Danny Wilson, between classes, introduce myself, ask and see what happens.
The next day between 2nd and third period, wearing my favorite plaid pleated skirt and red cashmere sweater, I raced up to the senior fourth floor home room. There he stood dressed in a reindeer sweater and yellow cords,surrounded by friends. All five feet three inches of me puffed up and pushed my way to stand right in front of him. I tapped on his chest to get attention and when he looked down, he had a surprised look on his freckled face. I spoke fast: “I’m Joy Simon, my sorority is having a dinner dance October 30th and I want you to be my date, okay?”
