Rainbow Snippets Jan 14-15


Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQIA authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

In this group, you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQIA. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes; anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be six sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.”

Welcome to another Saturday filled with Rainbow Snippets!

The link below will take you to the public Facebook group where you find both new and established authors posting bits from their WIPs and new releases:

I’ve been working on Lawrence & Curtis’ story daily, giving myself 2k a day goals and making them. The other night my little novella that could, told me they wanted to be a novel. I look forward to where these guys are taking me.

Hope you enjoy a little further along from last week.

Lawrence could feel Curtis’s fingers massaging the spot that made him grin with pleasure. Out of high school that’s good, out of college too. Maybe he’s got a good job at an IT company or a bookstore, but god please don’t let him be a barista.  “Oh.. Oh, there… yes. Cur… Curt, that… “ Lawrence was worried he wouldn’t be able to work it again after last night, but something about this guy mouth and hands and face and everything. His legs stretched and tightened, his toes curled, his breath came out in ragged gasps.

Lawrence doesn’t want him to be a barista, eh? Hmm, how about…a mechanic? 😉

Hope he’s happier with a mechanic than he would be with a barista! 😉
Love that he’s “grinning with pleasure”. <3

I love discovering a story has hidden depths & won’t let you go until you’ve explored them. My 30k novella Muscling Through was originally just a 9k short story. 🙂

I love the intensity of the sex contrasted with Lawrence’s wandering thoughts.

Characters have a mind of their own, I think. Sometimes I like what they have to say; other times, not so much. I hope they cooperate for you in writing their story.

I love the heat of the sex contrasting with his thoughts, especially whatever it is he has against baristas.

What’s wrong with being a barista? I love the way his thoughts were interrupted…

Funny how his thoughts wander, but then it’s too good to think any more 😀

I’m surprised he still has time to think. And what’s wrong with a barista? 😉
