My excerpt today is from my current WIP. It's totally unedited and has no name. If you see anything give a holler. We're picking up about where we left off last Sunday. Rhett has just told his wife Alex that he had an affair with another woman, and she had his child. I punctuated strangely so I could use more text. In the places where I have a semicolon, I really have periods.
She blinked. A small line appeared between her eyebrows as she processed his unbelievable answer. “I’m sorry, but I must have misheard you; who did you say he is?”
He set his jaw. “You heard me; I’m the boy’s father.”
“Oh.” For a moment no one moved or spoke, but her eyes cut to his face, and she scrambled to her feet with none of the grace he’d always loved about her. She was breathing way too fast.
If you have time I'd love for you to scroll down and see yesterday's post.
