Going Home #pnr #excerpt #NaNoWriMo #WeWriWa #8Sunday

The Weekend Writing Warriors hosts a group of writers who share excerpts of their published works or works-in-progress every Sunday for reader's enjoyment. Please, be sure to check out the other writers in this group. You might find your next great read!

November is National Novel Writing Month. I'm participating in this world-wide event to write the rough draft of a 50,000 word story in 30 days. To help keep me motivated, I decided to share brief excerpts of my work-in-progress every Sunday throughout November. I'm currently a little behind on my word count, but I have high hopes that I'll catch up in the next few days. At least enough to have 8-10 more sentences by next Sunday! :-)

The story I'm writing is a paranormal romance with a shapeshifter hero.

"Beth-Ann, come home. Right away, honey."

"What? Dad, why?"

"It's started." 

That brief phone call was all it took for Beth-Ann Miller to leave her dorm room at campus one morning in early November to drive four hours of interstate and back roads to reach her Tennessee mountain home. The sharp tone of her father's voice haunted her the entire trip. He hadn't explained anything more. Hadn't told her what prompted his sudden and mysterious phone call. Simply ordered her to come home.

  1. Ooh, the excerpt was really intriguing! Can't wait to read more of the story...

  2. What's started! Don't leave us there! Great snippet.

  3. Ooh, that would be a tad unnerving. I wonder what she'll find at home?

  4. Awesome hook, I am intrigued to know more!

  5. Awesome hook, I am intrigued to know more!

  6. Oooh, I wonder what's happening and what is starting. Curious to read more! I'm doing Nano as well but my writing is definitely not shareable without some major edits. LOL

  7. Very intriguing! Love the tension! :D

  8. That snippet piqued my curiosity. Good job.
