Weekend Writing Warriors: Sunday 14 December 2014 (NaNo 2014 WIP Romance with Rayguns)

“I’d really like to be much clearer on your cousin’s intentions in adopting Arna.”

“Martisset’s a reasonable person. I think you’ll like her.”

“Well, you seem to have a bit of a crush on her.”

“Proof positive she’s very much your sort. Though she was quite clear that she was spoken for, these decades, so no worries that she’s going to try to cut me out and run off with you.”

Taryn laughed aloud. “Every time I think I know where this conversation’s going, you take a hairpin turn.”


From NaNo 2014, untitled romance with rayguns. In which Taryn and Hernan, my romantic leads, talk about Hernan’s cousin Martisset, who has rescued 12-year-old Arna from a shipwreck.

Weekend Writing Warriors offers a selection of eight-sentence excerpts from many different writers. For the full selection, see here.

    Great dialogue!

  2. Now that was a fun scene! Taryn described it perfectly, as far as the conversation taking twists and turns. Loved the excerpt!

  3. Frank Fisher says:

    That was hilarious dialogue. Why does there always have to be someone that turns a simple conversation upside down? Nice 8!

  4. *snickers* This reads like pretty much any conversation between me and my friends on pretty much anyday: full of twists and turns that you cannot predict. Lovely snippet! Thanks for sharing!
