Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
Here's my teaser for today:

There is an unwritten rule of writing that the number of trips to the refrigerator a writer makes is in inverse proportion to how well a manuscript is going. When the fingers are flying over the keyboard and the brain is fuly immersed in the scene being created, food is completely unimportant.



(Pg 70, The Accidental Bestseller by Wendy Wax)

  1. That is so true! Even when it's only a review the person is trying to write. LOL

    Nice! I see this book is on its rounds, I'll look forward to hearing about it! Wendy I feel the same way! Sometimes it just flows, and sometimes everything that comes out is crap. Sometimes you just have to step away and have a sandwich!
