This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

Today's WeWriWa comes from The Cop, Donna's story in the Loving Her series.

Donna White is one tough cop. Behind the badge, though, is a very sweet, sad, sensitive soul. Truly a woman alone, Donna is simply trying to navigate her way through life. Who is Donna? She is dedicated, determined, distinctive and deep. Donna’s rich and touching story is second in the Loving Her series.






Donna knelt down in front of the grave, placing the bouquet of flowers gently down in front of the headstone. “Happy Father’s Day, Dad.” She said quietly. “This sucks, ya know. Father’s Day without you. What’s the point?” Her voice began to tremble. “I mean, what’s a girl supposed to do on Father’s Day without her father?”


Happy reading!

Very poignant scene, well done. I'm curious how long her dad is gone.

So touching and well written. Thanks, Lauren.

Touching scene in only eight. It tells us a lot about her and her relationship with her father in so few words. Nicely done!
