8 Sentence Sunday #10

Posted Apr 7 2013, 7:30 am in , , , ,

I just turned in the copy edits for A Good Time and I had a great time reading through this book again. I’ve been away from it for months (with the exception of the weekly posts here), and I had to read it cover to cover. Again. I really like Griffin. Anyway, here’s another 8 from A Good Time. Griffin and Indy shared a fun time together, but after she woke in Griffin’s bed, Indy gathers her things and sneaks out without waking him. Hours later, he shows up at her house, ticked off.

                     “Why are you here?” she asked again.

                     “I rolled over in bed, expecting to find a warm, naked body, and found nothing. When you didn’t pop out of the bathroom, I went to look for you and found this.” He tossed her crumpled note on the kitchen table.

                     She shook her head to clear it. “You’re pissed because I borrowed a sweatshirt?” How petty was this guy? She stripped it off and threw it at him.

    I’m really digging Indy in all these snippets – she’s so clear about what she wants! Great excerpt, Shannyn.

  2. Ella Quinn says:

    Something tells me it’s not about the sweatshirt. Great excerpt. I tweeted.

  3. I think she’s missing the bigger picture of what he’s upset about, maybe on purpose. Terrific snippet!

  4. Sarah W says:

    Willfully obtuse or genuinely confused? Can’t wait to find out! 🙂

  5. Yes, you’re all on target. She’s little obtuse and genuinely confused. In general, she’s never quite sure what to make of Griffin.

  6. Bet he’s not there for the sweatshirt.

  7. Nan says:

    She missed it, didn’t she? Great snippet! Hope he can convince her they’re good together because they are!

  8. Oh, something tells me there’s more to it than a borrowed sweatshirt! Great snippet.

  9. Why do I have the feeling it’s not about the sweater? Great snippet!

    Interesting characters. Love a girl with sass.

    Oh man, Griffin is going to have his work cut out for him, Indy doesn’t know what to do with a guy who appreciates her for herself! It’s going to be fun to watch it all unfold 🙂
