Today’s theme over on #1lineWed is COLD. Since we just had temps on the 60s that are plummeting tonight and tomorrow with a cold front coming through, it’s a good theme. I’m also MIA–mostly–around the intrawebz again. Sprout is back to running a fever though the doctor can’t figure out why. They know it isn’t the flu or strep. So…no daycare and clingy baby means “Jammie” is doin’ the grandmother thing. I did find time last night to dig out some lines, though. 😀
Without further ado, here are some of my lines about being cold–in all it’s many forms.
From an untitled Nightriders novella:
Watching her standing there shaking with cold and shock while a cop questioned her pissed him right the hell off.
From MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS, an early scene between Mac and Hannah, one y’all might remember after Hannah was beaten by the bad guys:
Mac took two bandannas from his pocket and soaked them in the cold water of the stream. Wringing them out, he pressed one gently against her cheek and the other under her tee shirt on her sore ribs. She hated to admit the cool cloths helped. Acknowledging how good those big hands felt on her skin just added insult to injury. She shivered.
And later, when Lightfoot is thinking about a mercenary back-handing Liz:
He went cold at the very thought of another man putting his hands on her.
And finally, from MOON SHOT, the moment Dalton is “introduced” to Hannah… 😉
Warm breath whispered across his skin like a lover’s kiss but the words coupled with cold metal pressed to the base of his skull chilled him to the bone.
“You’ll die before you can squeeze the trigger, motherfucker.”
How cold is your writing? 😉 Share if you’d like! One last note. I’m guest blogging on Mellanie Szereto’s BLOG talking about writing process. The post will be included in her next writing tips book, which is pretty darn cool, as far as I’m concerned! Come check it out. 🙂
