Rainbow Snippet for July 21st and 22nd


Welcome to another installment of Rainbow Snippets. A friendly and talented bunch of folks writing in the LGBT genre gather here on Facebook every weekend, so please click on the link and check them out.

Today’s tidbit is banter between shapeshifters from this month’s Camp NaNo project. I’m just writing whatever the mood strikes and this angst popped up toward the end of yesterday’s endeavors. I hope you enjoy.

Snippet:

“Don’t push me away. Not unless you want me gone for good.”

“I don’t know what I want. Don’t you get that?”

“Can I just tell you what I want? I think all of you will like it, both the primitive and the…”

“I don’t think I have a civilized side.”

“I was going to say lascivious.”

Do you think I should include a wry grin in a dialog tag with that last line?

  4. That last line made me laugh out loud—good one! I think including 'wry grin' would be overkill, though... The wryness comes across loud and clear, and I think any reader worth their salt will be able to read the grin into the dialogue. My two plugged pennies' worth :)

    Darla, thanks so much for the lovely comment over at The Cynical Sailor for my guest post last month—and so very sorry I'm only replying and visiting now. All sorts of stuff's been going on for me. But I really do appreciate you taking the time to share about Luna and your other two cats, as well as your experience with rescued dogs. Every voice lifted in favor of those lives counts, so—seriously—thank you :)

    Hope your summer's going fabulously so far!
