Snippet Sunday: Stormy Weather

We thought we would go with something a little different today with dialogue between Chloe and a minor character (this may be the only time she appears) while Chloe's distracted.

         "I picked a lousy time to stop smoking." Staff writer Kelly Raynaud looked as if she were on the verge of a meltdown as she appeared in the doorway. "I'm this close to taking hostages on the observation deck at the Empire State Building." 
         "Welcome to the club," Chloe said with unmasked sarcasm. "What's your excuse?"  
         Kelly waved her phone as if she might throw it at any moment. "I scheduled a phone interview with Stella McCartney for yesterday so I could make deadline. Now I can't get a call through to London because some storm took out the phone lines."


  1. Some people get cranky when it rains....

  2. I can feel the frustration in the scene. Great snippet.

  3. I can see her standing there. great 8!

  4. That's very frustrated indeed. This girl needs to do some yoga.

  5. I would like to take a hatchet to Windows 8. Good writing, though.
