“Coat Me In Clay”: #WeWriWa – #8Sunday

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’ Eight Sentence Sunday!

It’s simple and fun. Sign the linky list with your name, blog url and email address on Mondays, 8:00 AM EST. Each week, the list remains open until Saturday, 11:59 PM. Then on Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished. Visit other participants and offer opinions, critiques, support. Writers hanging out with writers, a good time with a great group of people.

It’s a chance to share a small snippet -exactly eight sentences – of my current writing. I’m sharing one last excerpt from my April CampNaNoWriMo project, Transitions: Kifo Island Chronicles, Volume One.  The Kifo Island series takes place at a resort that’s a little like hospice  meets Fantasy Island  Transitions chronicles the intersecting and changing lives of Barry, Terrance, and Corinne.

This snippet immediately follows last week’s WIPpet Wednesday  post, “That Simple”. Corinne is debating what to do about Barry, when he walks into her pottery studio…

But then he strode across the room, and pulled her up and into his arms, kissing her and crying at the same time – or was it her who was clutching at him, kissing and crying? Hadn’t her hands been in the slip bucket -?

Oh, hell, Barry, I’m getting drippy clay all over you -”

I don’t give a damn. I love you, Corinne. Coat me in clay, I don’t care. I can’t wait one more second to hold you, to be with you – “

You don’t mean -?”

Well, what does Barry mean? Is it what Corinne wants to hear? What does she want to hear?

No, I’m not telling you, because that would ruin the fun, but I’ll have 8 sentences from something else next week – and yes, it’s likely to raise a whole new set of questions! =D

While you wait, you can go visit other #8Sunday posts,which might just offer more answers (but probably will only leave you with more delicious unanswered questions!

What does Enterprise have to do with this post? Well, maybe not much, but, well, it’s Trip and T’Pol…and I’m gearing up to write some Warp 5 fan fiction next month…besides, it’s cute, and it fits this poised-on-the-edge-of-who-knows-what snippet…


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. Why, thank you. It was one of those scenes that was vivid and whole in my mind. I can even see the way the watery mess drips down his back, and the little clump sticking between his hair and collar. =)

    1. I will confess to having had a rather intense crush on Mr. Swayze during my late teens and early twenties. I will further confess to having been a Whoopi Goldberg fan even longer than that.

      Would it surprise you to know that seeing that movie in the theatre was one of my birthday gifts that summer?

      I haven’t been quite the same since…. =)

    1. Well, yeah…but there’s a lot of ground that needs to be covered, first…and both of them know that.

      Hopefully, their love will be enough, in the end…but of course. I’m not telling…not yet.

      Glad you enjoyed the snippet, and that the love part shines through.

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
