Rainbow Snippet July 10th

Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

I would invite everyone to please come check out the Rainbow Snippets group, click on a link, read and comment on the writing available and get involved yourselves in this awesome exercise. The link to the group can be found HERE

I have to admit I've been a little down this summer, it's too hot for me to spend time in the woods, the bugs are too bad and I've been stuck indoors so much that I'm starting to get upset with and second guess everything I write, so I've pretty much quit writing until the weather cools. That leaves a couple WIPs in limbo, and left me wondering what to share today. It finally dawned on me to share 6 lines from Guitars and Cages 2, which was completed months ago. 

Conner just grumbled and threw a pillow that Asher easily caught. Advancing with the pillow, Asher smacked him with it until Conner grabbed another one to block with. Soon, a full-fledged pillow fight had erupted, attracting Alexia’s attention as she’d passed by, and of course, she hadn’t been able to resist getting in on it too.
Rory stood in the doorway of the bedroom, watching his uncle, aunt, and Conner like they’d each just grown a third head. By the time they were done, they fell into a heap of pillows, pillowcases and feathers, laughing at each other and the mess they’d made.
“You’re gonna be in trouble,” Rory pointed out to them as the last of the feathers drifted down to rest on the floor.
“Not if we get it all cleaned up before Morgan sees,” Asher piped up.
“Not if you get what cleaned up before Morgan sees?” Morgan asked as he poked his head in the door. All of them froze for just a moment, and then each one pointed at each other.
“It was his fault!”

It's taken a lot for them to get to this point in their journey and they still have a long way to go, you can read the beginning of Asher's Story in Guitars and Cages.*Version*=1&*entries*=0


  1. LOL! Fun snippet. Hopefully Morgan's only mad because he missed it.

  2. Adorable! What a fun snippet. The weather here's been miserable as well. The heat makes the wild raspberries shrivel up, sigh. But this scene made me feel cheerful. I should probably go start a pillow fight with my loved ones :)

  3. Uh oh! I love a good pillow fight. :)
