Weekend Writing Warriors is an awesome blog hop that shares writers/authors work to the blogosphere. Every Sunday, they share an 8-sentence excerpt of a published or unpublished piece. If you’d like to join or have a fun read over the weekend, please visit WeWriWa’s website on Sunday, September, 7th.
I really appreciate all the feedback I’ve received on my rough draft. You guys are keeping me motivated to continue editing 🙂 . For a while there, I had given up on it, working on something else instead. Thanks again for your help! Here’s a continuation from the previous weeks:
“Do you think so?”
“You never know, you just never know; maybe Melody or Sequoia would?”
“She keeps in touch with Plaid, right?”
Perry ran his hands through his hair in a frustrated way. He didn’t know how to answer that question, and it ripped his heart out. Was Sequoia still screwing Plaid; had she communicated with him in Australia? Instead of answering, he remained quiet, looking back towards the TV to avoid the issue.
I’m starting to think I should have began this blog hop in earlier chapters. I chose this one because I was stuck on something and wanted to see if I was going in the right direction. Let me tell some backstory because these new characters may be confusing since you guys have gotten to understand Colin, Perry, and Cody.
Perry, Colin, and Sequoia star in a popular movie franchise. At the beginning, Sequoia was caught by paparazzi kissing a co-star on her sister’s top-rated TV show. The co-star is named Plaid, and in a magazine interview he had expressed his Hollywood crush was Sequoia (before they ever even met). That’s why paparazzi is really milking the drama for all its worth. The media and public believe Plaid and Sequoia only kissed, but Sequoia told Perry the truth (she hooked up with Plaid more than once). He decided to keep her secret (he likes dealing with things in private).
Anyway, the scandal happened right before the promotional tour of their movie, so they are forced to work together. Plaid wasn’t taking the bait of badmouthing Sequoia to the press, so the press took matters into their own hands and baited her ex from years ago to throw her name in the mud (Cody’s hidden agenda–his new TV show will be premiering soon. Any publicity is good publicity).
Hope this helps 🙂
Oh and Melody is a troublemaker who stars in the popular franchise with Colin, Perry, and Sequoia. She has a crush on Perry, so is very jealous of Sequoia (she loves that Sequoia messed up and hopes that she can take her spot in Perry’s heart).
