When I get together with writing friends over coffee we talk about our work. I love these gatherings. They inspire me.
I’m going to try to emulate that experience here on Saturdays. I’m asking participants to share their favorite lines from their writing this week and/or their readings. For brevity sake I ask that pieces be 1 to 5 lines. You can add buy links and your website, if you wish, at the end.
My favorite line(s) from my readings this week:
In this line Franki Amato the feisty, detective heroine in Traci Andrighetti’s, Limoncello Yellow…, is describing coming home to her apartment in New Orleans. The book is hilarious btw.
“My bordello-style apartment constantly reminded me that I wasn’t having sex, and the cemetery reminded that I was going to die. Now I definitely needed a drink.”
Some favorite lines from my writing:
“Inspector Peterson from the Vancouver Police Department strode through the front door, took one look around and headed straight towards her. Gravel voice. Of course it would be him. Of all the policemen in this fine town, and of all the Italian restaurants . . . His eyes cut through the distance between them like razor blades, bringing the memory of the last time she dealt with him back to her with the clarity of a hammer blow between the eyes. He stopped a foot in front of her and nailed her with his cop glare. “Why do men get murdered around you?” (ending of the first paragraph)
Your turn. I can’t wait to read your lines. Everyone’s welcome.
