Ciao, amici. The random word generator gave me some really good options this week. I settled on the word PATHETIC.
Without further ado, here’s a snippet from the novel.
Despite desperately clinging to what little pride she had left, tears welled in her eyes and trailed down her face.
She told herself it was a reflex response to the pain, but she knew better. It was the abject humiliation and pathetic weakness that had her in tears.
General consensus was to stick with the short teasers rather than the long excerpts, so that’s what I’ve done. And will continue to do.
I hope this one piqued your curiosity. I’d love to hear your thoughts. And to know what you’re currently working on. Do you have a “pathetic” quote you can share? Or maybe another awesome line or two. Let’s talk about it.
