Weekend Writing Warriors #86!

Happy, happy Sunday, my friends! Welcome back to another weekend of writing and warrior-ing! You all look fabulous in your battle attire. I'll be sharing another excerpt from Adventures in Online Dating, but first, here's a blurb!

After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you! :-D

And here's an excerpt, skipping ahead a little bit (and yes, I was a bit playful with my punctuation): 

With a few more clicks Joe was revealed, in all his bare-chested glory. “Be nice,” Sydney warned.
            Grace cocked her head to the side. “I’m sorry, I may be more tipsy than I think I am, but is he not wearing a shirt?”
            “Yeah, I know it’s kinda lame, but do you see his body?”
            “Oh, hello, pecs; lovely to see you; abs of steel, so kind of you to make an appearance; chiseled jaw and perfectly sculpted biceps, I’ll be dreaming of you tonight....”
            Sydney burst with laughter. “You’re drunk.”
            “Let’s see more, let’s see more!”

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors! 

I'm off to a surprise 91st birthday celebration for my grandma today! We've rounded up the troops, we've ordered the cakes (yes, multiple cakes), and Mother Nature has done her part with the beautiful sunshine and spectacular fall colours. Can't wait to see her face when she sees her whole family gathered on the lawn to celebrate. Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead! :)

  1. Always a way with words, Evelyn, you get the first smile of the morning from me. I love the hello pecs line.

  2. Love your character Grace's description of him. Very clever way of letting the reader know what he looks like. Have fun at the party. I'm sure your grandma will be thrilled!

  3. Ha! Funny snippet, yes...let's see more!

  4. Oh yessss, let's see more of this guy LOL. Great 8!

  5. LOL...drunk ladies ogling shirtless pictures online. They are too funny.

    Have fun at the party.

  6. Ha, how drunk do you have to be to question whether or not some dude is shirtless?! These gals crack me up!

    Sounds like it's going to be a great birthday just from the mention of multiple cakes! (My mom's 91st is next Monday, but haven't thought about the cake yet!) Give your grandma an extra birthday hug from me, and have a great time!

  7. This snippet was awesome! I can remember my days of the drunken talk. Very cute snippet. I think I need a margarita. ;)

  8. LOL, another fabulous snippet;). Great sense of humour and very true.
    I hope you have a wonderful day with your grandmother and your family.

  9. Sounds like Joe might make the final cut. Hope to see more of him soon! Fun snippet.

  10. Aw, give Grandma a big hug. Hope you all have a wonderful day. I can just picture these two ogling the computer screen. Fun snippet!

  11. He might be lovely, but it sounds like he thinks much of himself--after all, he put a shirtless picture of himself on the dating site. That being said, they should go on a beach date, so she can see him in a swimsuit!
