Weekend Writing Warriors Excerpt #25

The Weekend Writing Warriors is an awesome site that allows writers to share their 8-sentence excerpt, published or unpublished, to the blogosphere. If you’d like to join the fun or would love to read wonderful talent, then please check out the WeWriWa website on Sunday. Here’s the link: http://www.wewriwa.com

Here’s my excerpt:

They hadn’t seen each other or talked on the phone since the executive meeting.

Would he avoid her, could he even look at her, how would her Hollywood family treat her? Naturally, they’d probably pick sides; who was she kidding–they’d definitely pick sides. Of course, they’d be around Perry most of the time, especially if he acted like a wounded puppy.

Echo, she didn’t even get to say good-bye or even got a say in what kennel he’d be staying in. No matter what happened between Sequoia and Perry, they’d have to come to terms that they were parents to Echo. They’d have to plan a visitation schedule. Even though she was in the wrong, she wasn’t willing to give up on their dog that easily.

Keep smiling,

    • Thanks Veronica! I’ve never owned a pet (even as a child) so I’m making stuff up as I go. I think of how attached my cousins are to their dog.

      Keep smiling,

  1. Yeah, very powerful stuff. I can really feel her love for the dog, and I think it’s interesting that she’s thinking in terms of compromise–I guess she isn’t empowered enough to think she can get sole custody perhaps? Thanks for sharing, great to meet you.

    • Hey KelworthFiles,

      It’s nice to meet you too. Thanks for liking my snippet. I never even thought of sole custody of a dog. That could add even more tension (if Perry keeps Echo from Sequoia). Much to think about 🙂

      Keep smiling,

  2. Things are gonna get sticky. It is always hard when there’s a break up especially when you have common friends between the two. 😦
