WeWriWa-Take Two

   

#WeWriWa- Take Two

Last week was my first Weekend Warrior Writing challenge. I had such fun and enjoyed all the questions and comments about my snippet. Now it’s that time again so enjoy. If you like what you see or are curious, check out what the others are doing for their snippets at www.wewriwa.com. Below I’ve got another teasing 8.

Dane’s head snapped up.  His cousin’s voice caused the she-wolf’s growl to increase like a freight train with no brakes.  Her eyes flicked over his shoulders, her body going taut.  Don’t do it.  “Easy, sweetheart.”  He kept his voice soft and crooning; hoping against hope that she wouldn’t make a move for his cousin. Tranqued by humans or taken down by a wolf in his human skin. Neither would be a pleasant option for her.

    I think she will make a move. She seems to be that type of person that will go up against whoever or whatever. Nice 8!

    Seems like a massacre is about to happen. I wish you would identify the characters to keep the reader informed. I was confused. Otherwise good eight and thanks.

      Thanks Evelyn that means a lot. I did notice I repeated the phrase “He kept his voice/tone” from last week. I’ll need to play with that since it’s the first time I caught it.

    Nice simile–and I love the tension. You might consider, perhaps, breaking the paragraph up some–it’s pretty dense.
