Snippet Dec 10

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.  Today's snippet is from the same WIP as last weeks, this conversation takes place between Danny and Jax at the theater, after Jax has been helping with sets for awhile. 

“That’s what a production is all about,” Danny replied, a small smile crossing his face. “It’s not a division of actors and tech crew, it’s everyone trying to work together to make a performance happen.”

“That’s cool. What you guys do here is pretty awesome. Never would have imagined so much went into it.”

“What we do here.”


“You said, ‘you guys,’ but you forgot to include yourself,” Danny pointed out.

“Some screws and bolts aren’t the same as what goes on out there.”

“Don’t do that.”

Jax frowned and studied Danny, confused by the sudden look of fury on his face. “Do what?”

“Undervalue what you’ve done to help.” Danny snapped. “And don’t think none of us have noticed the way you never seem to take a break, not for a snack, not for lunch, you just guzzle water and that protein stuff you carry with you.”
