Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior round. Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.
Last week Justin confronted Layne with his bombshell announcement. When the boy appears behind his mother, she yells at him and demands that he lock himself in his bedroom, meanwhile she attempts to prevent Justin from barging in. Layne’s son is named Dennis. (btw, a reference to nosy neighbors was edited out last week)
...and now the eight:
She slowly turned her head to look at a photograph of Dennis that was sitting on the top of her television set and made the comparison to the man standing in front of her.
Suddenly she screamed at him and began to beat at his chest with her clenched fists, "Get out, get out of here, get the hell out of my home!"
"Layne, calm down," Justin tried to defend himself from her blows; he grabbed at her hands and tried to hold the struggling woman away from him.
He heard a door open.
"Should I call the police, Layne," Mrs. Addamson called across the hallway from the protection of her own doorway.
Justin wanted to see the boy again, he wanted this beautiful lunatic to stop attacking him, he didn't want to have to call his lawyer to get him out of jail. "I'll be back," Justin turned on his heel and left. Mrs. Addamson slammed her door as he entered the hallway.
