Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! 🙂
So, Inkpen Authoress has started a thing. It’s called chatterbox. Every month, there’s a new “prompt” if I may use the term. In essence, you’ve got to take the word/sentence she’s put up there and write about it using your characters. Did that make sense? Like, if it’s about coffee, you write about the characters drinking/serving/talking over coffee. If that still doesn’t make sense, check out her blog and hopefully that’ll work. 😛
Anyway, I’ll be doing that. This month’s chatterbox topic? Have you guessed? Coffee. 😉
Here’s my snippet using my babies Cael and Aspen and Kody (Cael’s twin brother) and Core and Blade from Desensitized. This is from the second book in the series. It’s written from Aspen’s point of view.
“What do we do between now and then?”
“Take advantage of this time and catch up on sleep.”
“Not you.” Cael pokes my arm. “You are spending time with Kody. And you’re going to be the best of friends.”
He smiles wickedly. “And while you’re working things out, I’m going to catch up on sleep. Now… if you don’t mind…?” Cael makes a shooing motion with his hand, indicating that I should move so he can get out. I cross my arms.
“You’re staying here just in case this doofus decides to break someone’s face again,” I say, nodding in Kody’s direction. “Blade and Core can go to sleep first.”
The two boys perk up at the thought, then slide out of the booth and head upstairs before Cael can stop them. He glares at me.
“Just until you start getting along,” he says, rubbing his eyes.
“You’ll be needing some coffee then,” I say.
“Already had some.”
“You need more. Do they do free refills?”
“I think so. Kody would you mind…?”
The older twin grudgingly complies, scraping three mugs off the table and bringing them to the counter.
I’d love to see your snippets if you decide to choose to join in the chatterbox prompt! If you want to share, go ahead and leave a link to your blog/website (or leave the snippet if you don’t have a blog/website which is totally fine!) and I’ll check it out! 😀 I can’t leave comments, depending on who you are, but I will check it out. 🙂
