So unusual ~ Weekend Writing Warriors / #8sunday / 07/31/16

Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday round. Every week writers post 8-to-10 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book.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.

WeWriWa blog

A long, long time ago I shared a few snippets from my Paranormal Romantic Suspense, Karma Visited (only 5) - and we didn't get a full taste of this . Since I am working on a sequel and revisiting the story for myself, I'm sharing more with you and soaking up your comments.

Do you believe in karma? Annie Furman has a gift that allows her, while she sleeps, to visit people in their time of need - but who will be there for her when she needs help? Undersheriff Dave Turner is investigating a series of home invasions and homicides. He has no idea that solving this case will lead him to the woman of his dreams.

Upset after yet another argument with Scott, Annie decides to take a nap — she concentrates on the man she "met" in her dream hoping to find him again.

Creative editing alert!  Here are Nine lines... 

He caught a glimpse of her in the corner of his room, Dave slowly put the book down that he was reading, “it’s been a few days.”
“You can still see me,” she wasn’t sure that he would.
“Yes and hear you,” he pulled his stocking feet off of the ottoman and sat up, “why don’t you come in and sit?”
Annie hesitated before stepping into his full view, “I still don’t know how this is happening and I can’t figure out why you aren’t denying this is happening.”
The cat ran past her and stopped suddenly to hiss.
“Stop it Mauszer,” Dave watched as the cat put his fluffed tail down and slowly walked away. He shrugged, “they say that cats are very sensitive to… the unusual.”
He waited for her to sit on the couch next to the chair, “I’ve been doing some research; I think this has to do with something called astral projection.”

“Do you really believe in that?”

They underestimated me.

Poor traumatized kitty. Love the research, though. Might as well try to figure it out when something weird happens, right?

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Loved that the kitty stopped to hiss. :) I'm glad the two are starting to figure out what is going on. I want to know too.:)

Astral projection would certainly come in handy! I love this concept.
