Teaser Tuesday #2

This every other week schedule seems to be working out quite well. The past couple of weeks have been pretty productive in terms of writing--maybe not as productive as for some others, but for me, it's a good start. I found myself having to go back in and add my new favorite character, Hailey, into the beginning of the story. It's amazing to me how much this random character has influenced so much of the story so far.

So, today, I'm teasing a snip from a scene with Hailey. The girls are helping to build a house for a family in need. It's lunchtime, so they've headed out back to eat with the other volunteers.

As usual, this is the first draft and completely unedited. I'll take the snip down sometime this week.


Thanks for the comment, guys!!

"But, I guess maintaining a constant smile and flirtatious giggle while the boys stand around talking about sports would take a lot out of any girl." - This one made me chuckle. Same as the hyperventilating hyenas yay for alliterative assonance :D I liked how this piece breaks up the standard bully-scene/"in"-crowd vs. the outsider pattern. Good luck with the rest of the draft :)

Woohoo, Go Hailey! Looking forward to reading a bit more. Love that she's truly herself and is not concerned with the hierarchy.

Very nice. And I see why you like Hailey.

Hailey = great. I'm curious to know why she's with them if she's got low social standing-- very intriguing.
