Where Love blossoms…

Tom heals the rift with his mother…Weekend Writing Warriors…#8sunday…9/14/2014


Hey All! I’m back again doing the #8sunday with the wonderful  Weekend Writing Warriors!  I really loved reading the other snippets! This week’s excerpt from my debut novella The Trouble with Playing Cupid shows the scene when Tom and December discuss his phone call with his estranged mother.

“I think so. I think I’m still in shock though. My mother was always this elusive figure in my life and now she wants to be part of it. I didn’t think I’d be so forgiving, you know? But everyone deserves a second chance right?”

“Yes they do. Well nearly everyone. But yes your mom certainly does.”

  1. It’s nice that December is encouraging him to give him mom a second chance. It’s even more promising that Tom is willing to be open to the idea.

  2. Makes me wonder what kept mom out of his life?

  3. Forgive but not forget. A mother does hold a special place but does she deserve total forgiveness? Wonderful dialogue. It breaks my heart.

  4. Interesting plot twist. I can’t wait to meet the mother and see what affect she has on Tom. Very nice snippet.

  5. Hmm, from reading the comments, forgiveness is a double edged sword… Good 8, Tamara. I’m curious why she stayed so much out of his life until now.

  6. It’s always sad when mother and child don’t reate – happy that he is giving her a second chance, hope he will be happy that he did. Very natural dialogue. Good 8.

  7. Your dialogue is so natural. Nice 8.
