This is my first time at Weekend Writing Warriors. What a great way for writers to meet and readers to find great stories. I have enjoyed the many snippets from WIP and look forward to what happens next. You will fall in love with the many characters as I am doing.
Below are the first eight sentences from Chapter 1 of my 2013 NaNoWriMo and you’ll have to wait till next week to find out what happens to Iris and Bev.
The flash from the small explosion lit up the night, smoke blanketed the back deck. Iris and Bev jumped back but not before getting a good coating of soot on their faces. It probably wasn’t a good idea to be leaning over the copper pot.
“What the….,” Iris said coughing as she covered her face with her hands.
Bev turned her head away from the concoction in the pot bubbling over and took a deep gasping breath. That was close. She ran her fingers over her face to check for damage.
