WeWriWa The Model

It's time for another WeWriWa!

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!  :)

For this month, I am giving you snippets of Stephania's story in the Loving Her series, The Model.

She's exotic. She's beautiful. She's talented. She's unique. She's Stephania. A young successful model who started from nothing, she has experienced all the ups and downs of life. Never one to be kept down, she persists through life's trials and reaches for the fairytale ending she has always hoped for. Stephania's emotional journey is the fourth story in the Loving Her series.

Background on the snippet: Stephania is sixteen years old and working full-time to help support her family after her father's death. A customer at The Taco Shop gave Stephania her business card and told her to call.

This snippet has been edited to fit 8 sentences.

Steph stared at the business card under the dim light of the lamp in her room: Joanne Wilcox –
Wilcox Talent Agency, representing models, actors and singers in the greater Philadelphia area
since 1975. Why would she have given her this card? Steph wasn’t a model, an actress, or a singer.
This woman must be delusional. What would it hurt to actually
call her? Steph wouldn’t actually lose anything, right? Maybe she would just give this woman a call.

Hope you liked it! Happy reading!
