Inspired by Laura Stanfill’s “Line of the Week” post, where she asks writers to post a line or a paragraph from something they had written during the past week.
This is a paragraph from my second book, a (historical) horror called Possessed (for now):
Adeline spun around, her full skirt swaying like a ship’s sail. Gabriel jumped down from the tree, landing awkwardly, and ran to catch up with her. She gawked at him once he reached her side.
“I’m sorry, all right? Most girls back home aren’t interested in climbing trees or exploring. If you don’t mind, I would like to start over again.”
Adeline crossed her arms as a hint of a smile formed on her girlishly pretty face.
Feel free to share something from what you have written this week.
