Weekend Writing Warriors, read this weeks snippet. #8SUNDAY


Hello friends.  I’m so excited to read what everyone wrote this weekend.  I’m such a nerd, but you make my weekends.  🙂  I love spending my Saturday nights preparing my posts (seriously)  Today was a long day and the weather is warm in Chicago-land-> meaning above freezing.  We are currently above 38, which is exciting in January.  Spring is almost here!  Can you imagine the imaginary back-flips that I have been doing?

Oh really quick, check this out:

It’s a paper copy of my column.  So exciting!!!  You can check any of my future columns out in Reflejos Newspaper and they “up’d” me from bi-weekly to weekly.  Yay,  Here’s the link.

Now let’s get down to business and see what’s going on in this scene that I’ve been sharing with you, I think I’m going to skip ahead next week to get you more of the story.

*****************************************************************************************

“You heard me Lilly.” Antonio said, “I think it’s best if you go, before you create any more embarrassment for my family.”

“Embarrassment?” I asked.

Antonio wasn’t listening. Instead he was going through the bag and pulling out clothes that I instantly recognized as the clothes that I had left my fathers house with before we were married. My bottom lip began to quiver.  He threw me my old house robe, but I didn’t reach out to catch in time and it and it landed at my feet.

And that’s it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  Visit my Weekend Writing Warrior friends here.

  3. He is such a crazy, selfish, s.o.b.! I wish she had the courage to go back to the USA… I never imagined the story would take this nasty of a turn. Poor Liliana…

  5. So happy for you that the column went weekly already! I felt sorry for your heroine in today’s scene, so uncomfortable ( but that’s because you depicted it so well). Excellent 8!

    First off, congrats not only on your column, but on being made a weekly columnist! That’s great! Congratulations!

    This was a great 8. It’s very intriguing. The emotions are palpable; the scene played out perfectly in my mind. It leaves me wanting more. Very well done!

    Would it be terribly rude of me to call Antonio a world-class B***tard? Wow, I really do feel for Liliana, but it does sound like she would be better off without him. Great snippet.
