Okay, so I know it's not Teaser Tuesday, but I'm running low on time --it's definitely not because LOST is about to come on TV, and I really want to watch it (despite my continual LOST-ness when watching), promise. *wink, wink*--so I've decided to share a little snippet from my current WIP.
Now, like always, this is rough. (I'm serious. I promise I don't just say that to get nice comments, though I really do love all the nice comments!!)
I wrote this little snippet one day on a whim, and I have no idea if it will even stay in the story. It was more or less a exercise to test out my MCs voice. YAY for writing exercises, aren't they fun?! So much more fun than real exercising, for sure.
So here it is, my small, possibly bogus snippet from Poison Ivy. Enjoy!!
This morning, my car was exactly where I left it last: buried nose deep in mud, teetering tail up in the shallow creek at the end of the vacant, tree lined road that lead to our house.
Not the ideal parking spot. I had an excuse, though—in true teen fashion. I blamed it on “the migraines.” I did have migraines, sometimes. Okay, never. But it’s not like I could tell my parent’s the real reason. Tweeting while driving was a bad idea, believe me, I know that... now. And how could I resist reading a Tweet from my Ian, professing his love for me, to the entire Twitter-verse in one hundred and forty characters or less?
The problem was: I couldn’t. Apparently, self-control was low on my list of redeeming qualities.
Positive the real story wouldn’t appease my parents, I figured my little fib was the best way to go. For everyone. I wouldn’t loose my driving privileges—once my car was hauled out of the creek and de-mudded. And dad wouldn’t have to suffer through hauling his, “little girl,” and her boyfriend to school every morning. Even though the last part would have only been temporary. Ian would have gotten his car back, eventually. Most likely once the dust settled on his newest speeding ticket. Regardless, I planned on sticking to the “migraine” excuse. For my dad’s sake, of course.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!!!
