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 the month of September, we will be reading excerpts from The Shelter Director, Jen's story in the Loving Her series.
Shy, quiet, humble – Jen is the kind of person that would give you the shirt off her back and then ask you what else you need. She may not be a movie star, but she’ll treat you like one. She works diligently to help save cats. She sacrifices her life and stability to accommodate her partner. She gives until it hurts, and her reward is a devastating diagnosis. What will her life become?
Background on the snippet: Jen is on the phone with her father. He just told her that her mother was dying of stomach cancer. This snippet has been edited to fit 8 sentences.
“Yes, we just found out today. She’s been in the hospital for days, now - she isn’t getting any better.” Gary stopped as he choked on his words; “How soon can you get here, Jenny?” Never before had Jen heard such desperation in her father’s voice.
“I don’t know, but I’ll go now.”
The other end of the phone was silent.
“Please get here, Jenny,” Gary hung up.
I hope you liked it!
