Stutter Creek #WeekendWritingWarriors Snippet

Welcome back for another look at Stutter Creek, coming June 1st.  We are up to Chapter Two.  Feel free to scroll down and poke around to read previous snippets if you missed them.  =)



Beth melted into the shelter of his embrace. Her damp, sun-warmed skin met his and she sighed. She wore a red bikini top and her own stringy-hemmed cutoffs.
Slowly, she raised her face. The top of her head barely grazed his shoulder. She had to stand on her tip-toes even though he was leaning down—then their lips met, and the brilliant rays of sunlight falling through the pines illuminated his face like that of a saint in a stained-glass window. “Saint John,” she laughed.
He laughed with her.
Beth shook her head to clear the memories. 




Okay, folks, that's all for this week.  Now skip on over to the wewriwa.com website and check out some AWESOME authors!  Until next week...cheers!

  4. Great descriptive narrative. This seems to be the Sunday for them! But I really enjoy reading an author who has strong narrative skills. Dialogue is great but I think background setting it critical as well. IMHO. Great snippet.
