#WIPpet Wednesday - Goth of Christmas Past - Single Again #amwriting #lgbtqia



WIPpet numbers for 29th November, 2017:
11 sentences from Goth of Christmas Past


WIPpet Context:
I haven’t ditched Tabula Rasa, but I am taking a break from it to write for NaNoWriMo. Thus, I’m snipping from my very new (and rough) WIP Goth of Christmas Past, still on target and one day to go!

The pictured cover is NOT the cover, which is finished, but I’m keeping it to myself for now. :)


In this snippet, Jay and Krissi are at the park, sitting on swings, and Krissi is swinging.

* * * * *
[Jay] “It’s Christmas. Why aren’t you bouncing around like you’ve got springs on your shoes. Actually…they’d be kind of cool.”

“Until you fall flat on your face,” Krissi grumbled on her next pass. She was moving fast enough that Jay listened for a doppler shift. He decided it would be better not to respond; he’d only say something sarcastic, and if he managed something more sincere, she’d think it was sarcasm anyway.

“So…I’m single again.”

“Are you?” He hadn’t known she was seeing anyone, nor whether she’d told him and he’d not been listening. He didn’t think so; he always listened to her. It was kind of hard not to.

  1. Ooh... things are NOT happy between these two. Friends, yes, but definitely some underlying bad feelings.
