blog fest for some time. I didn't think I would have time to participate, so I just blew it off. At lunch today, I started reading some of the other posts. I then thought, I can do this. I might be a little late, but, heck it's never too late for romance. So here is an excerpt of romance from one of my works in progress. It's middle grade, so it's not too steamy. In fact, it's not even romantic, but this is how these two kids first meet. It's all I've got--and I wanted to join the fun. It's actually the first few lines of my WIP Literary Loom. I'm hoping to send out querys soon to find and agent.
Josh scanned the unfamiliar classroom. There was only one empty seat—the front row, off to one side. It was next to a strange looking girl. Her desk was scooted apart from the others—or maybe the others did the scooting away.
Her mousy brown hair grew from her head like it was angry, or at least never saw the likes of one of those iron thingys girls used to mess with their hair.
Josh’s pontoon feet suddenly didn’t feel so large. Maybe he wouldn’t be the weirdest kid at this school after all.
