Weekend Writing Warriors #166!

Hello, all you beautiful people! Happy Sunday! I've got just a few more posts from Adventures in Online Dating to share, so without further ado, let's get to it!

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: 
“As much as I’d love to whip out my Jackie Chan moves on this loser, I’d rather not end up in the slammer too, but I have an idea.”
            The sound of angels singing couldn’t have been any sweeter. “Let’s hear it.”
            Sam quickly explained his plan, both of them keeping an eye out for the ex-con. “He works in this area, so it shouldn’t take him long to get here.”
            “If this is successful, you are getting the biggest tip imaginable”
            He smiled. “I’ve got something else in mind.”
            “Oh?” she asked flirtatiously. “What might that be?”

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

I have one week left of teaching, then exams, and then I'm off for the summer! Boy, do I ever need this break. I'm gonna spend lots of time with my family, the BF, and my friends. Whatever spare time I have left I'll be using to write, write, and write some more! I hope to finish another project that's in the works by the end of the summer. Now, the only thing missing is our summer-like weather. Wishing all of you a beautiful, sunshiny week ahead! :)

  1. Yes indeed, Sam- what do you have in mind? ;-) Can't wait to see what he comes up with!

  2. Enjoyed the excerpt - I like Sam, although I still remember the clown guy...hope your summer will be a happy one.

  3. Heh, heh, it Sam, work it! You always gotta look out for those guys behind the counter!

    Summer has arrived here with a vengeance! Enjoy your well-earned break, dear girl. I hope the writing gods smile down upon you!

  4. What a delightful snippet! I'm particularly fond of the first sentence. Wishing you a fantastic summer.

  5. Sam sounds interesting... Great snippet! Have a great summer!

  6. I bet I know what he's thinking for a reward--a date with anything other than coffee!

  7. I love any writing that references icons I love. Go Jackie Chan!

  8. I am hooked, Evelyn. One: what is the plan? Two: what is the price?
    Can't wait for your next snippet!

  9. Love this story that you've paced for months. Be well and happy, dear friend.
