Weekend Writing Warriors #126!

Greetings and salutations, fellow readers, writers, and friends! Happy Sunday! I'll be sharing another excerpt from Adventures in Online Dating today, so, without further ado, read on! 

Here's the 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, continuing from where we left off: 

A smile deepened the lines bracketing his mouth. “Beautiful name for a beautiful woman.”
            She dove for her mug so she could hide the giddy-swoony-girly grin that was threatening to split her face behind the ceramic. When she schooled her features to a less freakish level, she murmured a polite, “Thank you.”
            “So where’d you pick him up, that Joe fella?”
            Sydney sighed. “Online dating--he was my first, and most likely my last. I’m not so sure it’s for me.”
            “And the world of online daters collectively mourns the loss of their greatest acquisition.”
            “Where were you before I registered for the site and paid more than my month’s supply of coffee?” 

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

Well, today I'm off to my first family reunion of the summer. So excited to spend some quality time with my family, enjoy fabulous food, and revel in the festivities. But really, the main reason for my excitement is the fact that I get to squeeze my baby nephew! :D I'll be sure to give him an extra kiss or two (hundred) for all of you! Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead! :)

  7. I was thinking the same thing, wondering if ol' Garrett hangs out at the coffeehouse on a regular basis, waiting to swoop in and scoop up damsels in distress. But he sure says the right things, I'll give him that! He and Sydney certainly seem to be hitting it off.

    Hope you had a blast with the family!
