Snippet Sunday 14-04-13 WWW



Thank you to everyone who visited last week and to those who left comments. Your thoughts are always appreciated.
For today's Sunday Snippet I'm continuing where I left off two weeks ago, a little ways into the beginning of a new WIP (working title Horseshoe 1)  ** Sorry I missed last week.**

Again I don't have names for my characters at this stage hence the 'he' and 'she.'

This week I have joined the Weekend Writing Warriors  again.

“Freemont? Ashworthy?  There is no… what do you call it? real estate agency in town, because there is no town within a hundred mile radius of this property.  Indeed there is no town on this part of my kingdom, so you see you are not only an intruder, but a liar, too.”

His voice rang with an undisputable authority that almost fooled her.  Whatever he was on, the man was flying in delusions of grandeur.

“Real estate agency is the equivalent of the English estate agent,” she began.

“I know not what you are talking about, nor do I know of these people and places you mention. I am expecting guests for the weekend and see no evidence of any preparations for their arrival and comfort. I sent word with my agent—“ he offered her an evil grin of satisfaction, then continued. “My agent, unlike yours is known to me and has worked for my family as did his father and grandfather before him. I am not interested in your mythical agents. Be gone.”

That's it for this week, :-) Thanks for coming by and you'll find lots more free-read snippets at Snippet Sunday  and Weekend Writing Warriors

Well, there's a man who knows his own mind! Love the dialogue!

Violet Hughes said...

Nice snappy tension in this scene. I'm really curious to read more. Sounds like you got a great start on that WIP, Sherry!

Jess Schira said...

I love the flying in delusions of grandeur line. It reveals so much about both characters. Great snippet.

Sarah W said...

My question is, did he time travel or did she?

Can't wait to find out!

Sharon Buchbinder said...

One of these things is not like the other, one is kind of the same...one of them is not going to be happy when he or she finds out the real time! Nice exposition of two strong characters.

Time travel! Great snippet. How's time is it?

Veronica Scott said...

Intriguing, love the dialog, I could go on listening to these two for a long time! Great snippet!

SherryGLoag said...

LOL Gemma, I love his 'attitude' too.

SherryGLoag said...

Thanks Violet, I'm enjoying these two.

SherryGLoag said...

:-) Thanks for your kind words, Jess.

SherryGLoag said...

And isn't that a great question, Sarah W? I never thought to wonder, but had it fixed in my mind. I wonder if... :-)

SherryGLoag said...

Very true Sharon :-)

SherryGLoag said...

:-) Kate, thanks for coming by. Sarah W has got me thinking about that. Until now I thought I knew.

SherryGLoag said...

:-) Thanks Veronica.

Monica Enderle Pierce said...

He's a bit of a bully, eh? She cannot get a word in edgewise!

Siobhan Muir said...

Doesn't he know hell hath no fury like a woman kicked out of her home? Man, he's asking for it. Good snippet, Sherry. :)

charmainegordon author said...

Hmm. Where are we? Very amusing and clever. Good eight.

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Love the banter. And the 'be gone." statement-- Heads will surely fall. lol

Elaine Smith said...

There is plenty of tension in your 8. I am interested and would love to read more.

History Sleuth said...

You got across well that these two have definite communication problems. "He" seems a bit confused about it all.

He's great! Though I agree, someone is in for an awakening of major porportions. Tweeted.

Teresa Cypher said...

Wonderful writing, Sherry! It was an odd mixture of teasing and tension. I loved this:

" I am not interested in your mythical agents. Be gone.”

Haha! Good 8!

Vivien Dean said...

I adore time travel to pieces, so I'm excited about where this might go. Great job sucking me in!

Ryan Derham said...

I love their mutual confusion not knowing they are confused.

Elaine Cantrell said...

Okay, who's the time traveler? I loved this excerpt.

Sherry Gloag said...

LOL Monica, he does seem like that doesn't he? Thanks for coming by.

Sherry Gloag said...

I think he's about to find out Siobhan :-)

Sherry Gloag said...

Charmaine, this story started in an FB writing group (Tuesdays Tales) where we write to a prompt, and it was a picture prompt of snow capped mountains, so I think it's going to be a 'little-known' European country.

Sherry Gloag said...

LOL Karen, I kinda had a chuckle when that came out, too.

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Thanks Elaine Smith. I'm glad you enjoyed this.

Sherry Gloag said...

Thanks Kate. I'm way behind this week, but am still hopeful of getting round as many posts as possible. Thanks for coming by.

Sherry Gloag said...

LOL Ella, I predict many sparks between these two before they are done with each other.

Sherry Gloag said...

:-) Thanks for your kind words Teresa. I'm so behind this week but hope to visit as many SS & WWW folk as possible.

Sherry Gloag said...

Vivien, this is my first venture into time travel and wasn't intended, so not sure how it'll all turn out. I anticipate some interesting times ahead for the lot of us. :-)

Sherry Gloag said...

Ryan, thanks for coming by :-)

Sherry Gloag said...

LOL Elaine C, I'm not telling,:-) but thanks for coming by.
