Snippet Sunday: Worrying About The Future

Another snippet from our manuscript today, this from Chloe's point of view as she's at home in New York, dealing with the news of her mother's cancer diagnosis.

Thursday evening found Chloe at home, anxious. She needed to talk to Gabriel. She needed him here, with her, but she would not ask him to put his work aside and come back to be with her. Realistically, what could he do that he isn't already doing, other than hold me? Chloe asked herself. He can't change what's happening to Mom. He can't save her. She looked at the clock. He'll be calling soon, thank God, she thought. Just hearing his voice would make me feel better. He'll make me laugh. He always does.


  1. Soon, we'll have the whole book published on the blog!

  2. My wife and I had a long distance courtship. Louisiana to New Jersey.
    Nothing like a great phone conversation.
    Nice 8!

  3. "Realistically, what could he do that he isn't already doing, other than hold me?" Sometimes that's the most important thing. And realism rarely matters in matters of the heart.

  4. Know how she feels. :-) Nice snippet this week.

  5. Those hugs are all so important. Emotional snippet.
