A blog I follow announced last week an online meme among writers and readers called, “That’s what he said Thursday”. What an awesome idea!
I decided not only to tip my hat to C.S. Wilde for sharing this idea with her readers, but also for acknowledging Carianne from Cuppa ‘n Critiques who led me to the blog Chapter Break — the apparent originator of this delightful challenge!
Because these days I’m mostly editing, and also rewriting a work of non-fiction, I thought I’d turn to someone whose work I’m currently reading: Megan Haskell.
Haskell is the author of “Sanyare: The Last Descendant”. In the scene quoted above, the protagonist, Rie, just arrived in the Shadow Realm to find the truth about the assassination attempt on her life. She just met Braegan, a vampire who has offered to help her find her way around town. If he hadn’t been so damn good-looking, she might have turned him down on the spot, but instead she gets a little closer than she should!
Join the fun! It’s Easy!!
