Wednesday Words: Sun

wurkn-on-mai-plan-for-word-domination-caleb-pupI’m late. I normally set up a post the day/night before. Sadly, I’m fighting a sinus infection. I hate being sick! My brain didn’t engage yesterday and I was in bed right after dinner. Oh, who am I kidding. I had dinner–clam chowder and toast–in bed. But I’m up today. Sort of. Today’s theme for #1lineWed is SUN. While these snippets are from previously published works, they’re also a WIP because I’m setting up MOONSTRUCK: LIES. Revisions, additions, and fun stuffs! Anyway, LIES encompasses HUNTER’S MOON (Jacey and Nate) and WOLF MOON (Sean and Annie). Here ya go…

This line pretty much sums up Jacey’s life after meeting Nate and I didn’t realize that until now. 😆 Meme time!

The sun peaked over the horizon and the murky landscape materialized into a fantasyscape of light and shadows painted with a watercolor brush. Jacey gripped the back of the seat in front of her and peered forward. There could be no looking back now.

There’s nothing like an Oklahoma sunset. Or dawn for that matter. 😉

Jacey slipped out the front door. She handed one of the mugs she carried to Nate and then settled next to him on the porch swing. A salmon-colored disk hanging on the horizon, the sun painted the clouds with amethyst, vermilion, cobalt, and shades of peach. She didn’t say anything for long minutes, until the sun slipped behind the tree line and the atmosphere took on a purple haze. The air cooled appreciatively with the promise of an early autumn.

Sean is everyone’s favorite charming “bad boy.” Anyone who’s ridden down a country road will know how this snippet feels.

Sean laughed and revved up the engine again. He now knew how to play the Wolf Pack biker gang. He had an “in.” Easing the clutch, he accelerated and the powerful motorcycle leaped into action. This was what he loved about being on a bike. Wind teased his scalp and skin with wispy fingers. The sun speckled the road through the overhead branches and the black ribbon of highway stretched in front of him, beguiling him with a siren’s call to freedom.

How about y’all? Any sun in your lives or writing at the moment?

  1. :blink blink: Sun? I think there was some outside today. I was in the editing cave all day. Still not done, but the end is near. My eyes are tiny balls of sand.

    More awesome snippets! Yay. I don’t have anything to offer in return today. Maybe once I get this done I’ll be more sociable.

Got something to say?
