Welcome to the best blog hop in town where writers post 8-t0 sentences in a snippet and are bombarded with sincere constructive critique. Yes, you heard me, folks, because we all want to help each other improve our writing. So here goes.

Lat week in my story Spreading Her Wings, a family problem is resolved. Wealthy father realizes daughter has plans of her own and agrees to respect her ideas. Ah fiction. Don’t you love it!Intrepid reporter Sally Kirkwood calls her lecherous boss on the way back to River’s Edge. She has an idea for a story to use on his cable television station. Little does she know he still has a thing for her.

excerpt:

Lance Jordan, the smooth talker picked up, his sensual voice reminding her of last spring when they almost got involved and she said no.
“Are you ready to say yes?”
“Let’s talk business, boss, because I just witnessed quite a scene at the Shubert Theatre with a major backer for the new production, his daughter, and the producer with threats and just about everything.I learned that Johnny Epstein’s the producer and he needs a major backer or a conglomerate interested in investing in the show so he’s not beholden to this other backer with the kid.”
“ I’ll call my connections and get back to you, now what’s your angle on an interview?”
“I’m thinking about what goes on backstage, how it hurts the talented kids when a backer pushes a girlfriend or someone close with no talent into the lead.
“And the name of the play is. . .”
“Damned if I know.”

The voice of Lance Jordan could be heard saying, “Damned if I Know is a terrible name for a play.”

Hi Gang,

Things are brighter in our household now. Don ‘s feeling well enough to work so I can get back to Grandest, three cats, and writing. Do you ever feel promotion takes up too much time? I do, Does anyone know mature and other blogs that might like what I write? I’d sure appreciate some direction.

Spreading Her Wings resolves one problem and heads right into another this week.

Last week, with Misty’s help,  Clarabelle, now Claire, reveals she chooses to be a costume designer.

Excerpt:

“Daddy, I love you but I don’t love what you’re doing here.”
He lit a cigar and said,“I’m busy and you’re taking me away from serious business, Clarabelle, so run along back to the stage where you belong.”
Grabbing his jacket, she wouldn’t let him leave and said, “No it’s my life so listen and don’t call me that silly name any more, call me Claire.”
“ I’ve given you everything since your Mother passed on and now you’re complaining?”
“Everything you wanted me to be but how about what I want? I’ve been taking art classes using my own money to be a costume designer and you’re not gonna stop me.”

“I just had to tell you and I don’t want you to invest money just so I could be somebody I’m not meant to be, Daddy, please forgive me.”
“Oh Geez, honey, let’s forgive each other ’cause you know I’m just a big lucky Irisher with no idea how to raise a kid all by myself.”
“Let’s get a copy of the script to read at home and daddy, one of my teachers is a widow . . .”
“Ya think it’s not too soon?”

Welcome to Weekend Writer Warriors, the best constructive critique group a writer could ever join. Always on Sunday, always reliable, and there’s always something to learn.

This week I’m moving on with To Be Continued, my first book published by Vanilla Heart Publishing. As a newbie, I had a lot to learn about writing, my skill as an actor proved to be helpful. Last week I painted the opening scene with a happy Elizabeth Malone waking up after a night of damn good sex with her husband Frank of forty years. Then she finds the letter he’s left her. Gone who knows where, taken his clothes, shipped out in the dead of night. The note said, “It’s not you, it’s me.” And a bit more about divorce papers and the house is hers, blah, blah. With her mother long passed on, she struggles to survive, her racing thoughts attempt to think clearly.

excerpt in eight:

Mom, you were the one who told me to marry Frank; thoughts tumbled over; Beth held her throbbing head, tried to think coherently to no avail with the past and present mixed in a kaleidoscope. Frank loves me ‘cause I’m a winner/ No-nonsense Coach says “Go to college on the scholarship—train for the Olympics, Mom/Frank/Coach pulling me until I almost fell apart. I have no one to turn to except for daughter Susie who idolizes her father; how did everything that seemed so right go so wrong?
Beth shivered and cried out, “I gave up swimming, a chance for Olympic gold, my college scholarship for you, Frank, doesn’t that count for something?” She pulled at the towel wrapped around her, “When did I stop being a winner and become a loser?”  Hurling the towel toward the bed where it landed with a soggy splat, she looked at her nakedness. She lifted small breasts and let go, no bounce; gazed at all her parts in pretty fair shape from swimming and diving for more years than she wanted to remember. She cried out, “Not young enough for you, Frank?” her voice ricocheted around the room and boomeranged back–not young enough–not anything enough–not enough.
