Weekend Writing Warriors Excerpt #9

Weekend Writing Warriors is an awesome blog hop that allows published and unpublished writers to share their 8-sentence excerpts online. Followers can leave comments as feedback, critique, and/or encouragement and motivation. I’m happy that History Sleuth invited me to participate a little over two months ago because it’s been really fun so far. For any writers who would like to join every Sunday or would like to read the talented writers’ works, please visit the WeWriWa’s website on Sunday, August 17th.

I’ve been sharing my snippet on my story about three celebrities caught in a cheating scandal. Right now, Perry and Colin are at the bar, upset with today’s events during their promotional tour. If you need to catch up, here’s Snippet #1 and Snippet #2.

Here’s my 8-sentence excerpt as a continuation of the chapter:

The incident only happened a few hours ago. “Well, thanks for having my back; I really appreciate it.”

“No problem, bro.”

Perry sighed, thinking about that dreadful interview. He had promised himself that he would never discuss Sequoia’s kiss with the public, but he hadn’t anticipated that the media would force his hand. First, they were trying to start rumors about Sequoia and Colin, then they sprang Cody on him; Perry studied his friend. Would he ever make a move on Sequoia? Had he ever?

Keep smiling,

  1. enjoyed the 8. This whole series of snippets have me questioning where is Sequoia. I would imagine she is also upset and embarrassed by today’s events. Also it sounds like Perry really isn’t into dating Sequoia, but apparently Colin has some hidden feelings about her. I wonder if she knows.

    • Hey Meka,

      Sequoia’s scene was actually in the last chapter, right after the interview. Her best friend and another female co-star were trying to cheer her up.

      Keep smiling,

  2. Hmmm, and that’s how rumors start…

    Very intrigued. I went back and read snippets 1 & 2 – what was the embarrassing incident? If the media has him paranoid, it’s no wonder he is allowing his imagination to wander.

    • Hey Chelle,

      The embarrassing incident happened in the limo ride on the way to the interview. Since Colin, Perry, and Sequoia are the leads of the movie, they have to always promote together. Colin and Perry got in a fight because Colin was being rude to Sequoia.

      The media definitely has Perry paranoid 🙂

      Keep smiling,
