Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors


Welcome to Snippet Sunday, and I hope some of Weekend Writing Warriors will find me here too. I missed the deadline to add my link because I was trimming my dog's nails, and I hit the quick. He was bleeding like crazy, which of course rattled his Mom and Dad big time. Anyway, my snippet is from The Captain and the Cheerleader. Last week I shared part of the opening scene, and we learned that Susan (heroine) and her friends are sitting in the teacher's lounge on Friday afternoon when a new teacher comes into the room. No one likes her very much. When you finish here you can find more excerpts at:

I forgot to say that I'm having a release party on FB on Tuesday at 7:00 PM CST which is 8:00 PM EST.  Here's the link, and I hope some of you have time to stop by.

Here's a blurb and excerpt.

Blurb:

Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

Excerpt:


Several people rolled their eyes. “Oh, I don’t think that’s the problem at all.” Susan smiled her most serene smile at her irritating colleague. “You just don’t know how to attract a man like Kurt.”


“And you do?” Robin’s eyebrows shot straight up. “If that’s true why haven’t you already gone out with him? Don’t tell me you wouldn’t be interested. He’s hot.”

“Until recently I was involved with someone else; I had no desire to see Kurt or any other man socially.”

Why do I get the feeling that last line of her reply is an excuse for "I tried, he rejected me so I gotta find another way"?

I like the tension between these two, and the snappy dialogue. Great snippet.

Go cats, go. Women can be so awful. On the other hand, friends can be just wonderful, especially guy friends. Nice snippet, Elaine

Caitlin Stern said...

Yeah, Robin deserves to go down. Not sure this guy deserves to be bet on, but I can see the impulse to do so.

Nice snippet! Women can be catty at times, and you caught that very well.
