Weekend Writing Warriors 2/24/2013

All right, time for my Sunday snippet. This time I'm going back to the very first scene. Catie has just arrived in town and met with the head vampire's second in command and been given the basic rules of the city. After he left, she was accosted by a man who seemed intent to rape her.

That was all she needed to hear. If he had wanted money she would have given him a couple hundred dollars and sent him on his way. A rapist was another story. It was time to teach him that he wasn't the only predator walking the streets at night. She grabbed his wrist and twisted it, making him drop the knife. "You picked the wrong person to mess with." Keeping a firm grip on his wrist, she whirled around and slammed him into the wall. She extended her fangs and lowered her head to his neck. 

From here on out I'll be going in order, though not consecutive. I'll probably go by scenes, giving a snippet from a different scene each week. Check out the rest of the participants in the Weekend Writing Warriors here

This is where I would normally tell you to check back on Wednesday for my weekly ramble. But, I will be posting Monday with the saga of my computer issues. So, come back on Monday to hear about why my posts may not be at my usual times for a while.

Edited to add: Attention fellow wewriwa-ers. Due to the computer issues I'll be talking about tomorrow, while I WILL be reading your posts, I am currently unable to comment. Hopefully I will have found  way to fix that by next week. But for now, know that I AM reading, just having some browser issues keeping me from being able to comment.


  1. "It was time to teach him that he wasn't the only predator walking the streets at night."


    Nice snippet--full of action. It certainly drew emotion out of me. :-)

  2. Great snippet! You set your scene so well, I was right there. Nice!

  3. Sweet! Love it when the tables turn!

  4. If anyone deserves a vampire attack, it's definitely that scumbag! Nice work, Jenny.

  5. I'm a huge fan of strong heroine types. At first I wondered why she was so much stronger, but then the last line.. just perfect. I love anything involving vamps. I can't wait to read more.
