Weekend Writing Warriors is an awesome blog site that allows writers to showcase their published and/or unpublished work to the blogosphere by sharing an 8-sentence excerpt. It’s a great chance to get feedback on drafts or to find new readers for published stories. If you’d like to participate or find new authors, please visit the WeWriWa’s website on Sunday, October 26th.
Sequoia’s involved in a celebrity scandal, and she just finished reading a magazine article slut shaming her. She’s on her way to the airport with her best friend and co-star, Kenley. Here’s my excerpt:
“This will all blow over in a couple of months. Your friends and family have your back no matter what. They definitely went too far with calling you a whore in the title. I have a feeling many women will boycott that; influential, high executives, popular actresses–we won’t stand for that. Gossip Reel should be ashamed of themselves, a bunch of women setting us back. Men use that derogatory term against women, women shouldn’t use it on each other.”
“Do you really think some people will boycott?” [Sequoia asked.]
Kenley held Sequoia’s hand, keeping her other one on the 10 position of the steering wheel. “Absolutely, I’m first on the list.”
