Welcome to Voice Week :) This is an event I’ve participated in for a few years because it’s a great way to focus on the little things that strengthen your writing. This year I’m working with the overall theme of “I like you” and how that phrase plays out.
I hope you’ll come back each day this week and see what voice I’m playing with. Comment and suggestions are always appreciated! And if you want to read more participants, check out the Voice Week Headquarters
“I like yer spunk, lil’ lady.”
Sandra spun on her heel, fingers closing into a fist. She’d taken on one drunken hand, she could take another. The man tipped his weather beaten Stetson and gestured to the seat beside him. She hesitated a moment then slid onto the stool. He gestured to the bartender and a shot of whiskey slid down the counter. Sandra tossed it back without thinking.
A low whistle escaped the man’s lips. “I been lookin’ for a woman who can hold her own.”
“You found her. How ‘bout another drink?”
