Do other authors experience this? With All My Tomorrows being in the spotlight recently, I decided to pull it out the other night just before bed; and I swear it was as if I had not even written it! I found myself really getting into it (not like I didn't know what was going to happen).
So, even if you've already read All My Tomorrows, I hope you will enjoy this little excerpt....
Alice turned to leave the dance floor and stopped just short of walking into Peter. Before she understood what was happening, he had taken her hands and tugged her toward him.
“Where’s Winnie?” she asked.
He furrowed his brow and peered at her through squinted eyes. “Why would she be here?”
He stepped forward as she resisted. “I’ve been dancing – I’m all sweaty.” She was, too. Her blouse clung to her chest, and her scalp was drenched.
“So am I.” He traced her face with his eyes and pulled her into his arms.
Her arms were trapped against his damp chest, so she had no choice but to circle them around his neck; but that only brought their bodies closer. They barely moved, their feet somehow turning them in a sluggish rotation, reminding her of slow dancing in high school. A tingly numbness enveloped her. She surrendered to it and laid her head against his shoulder, and he tightened his hold.....
Oooooh...and I just love what happens next!
