Writespiration #85 – Snippets Of You

Sacha has asked us to do this for this week’s Writespiration challenge.

1 – The title of your current WIP – if you’re working on more than one, just choose the one you like the title of best. Or if you like, make a title up.
2 – A 150 word snippet from your current WIP. If it is part of a series, feel free to post links to amazon for the first book (only) in the series and I will add it for people to have a look.


So here goes… one of my WIP’s, a new one, could be a collection of short stories, could be a stand alone long story…

Venus on Earth

That’s the supposed titles… the working title as it is called.

And the 150 (151!) word snippet…

All pretty usual for this place.
Then you get Venus House.
Intriguing name, isn’t it?
It’s one of the townhouses on my road, right opposite my own rented space. A beautifully kept house, and as far as I knew, it was owned by the lady who lived there. There had been no converting, but I think she rented rooms out to students.  Well, I had seen a number of young women who had stayed there for a while, before moving on, and a little time went by before another face became a familiar one.
Thing is, there were also quite a lot of visitors to this place.  They could be family or friends, I know, but it seemed strange that they only came most evenings…
Oh, I wondered plenty about this house. It was intriguing. And one day I got to find out a lot more about the tenants and owner…

    Cracking entry, I am, like Hugh, dead curious about the house. REALLY want to know more Ritu, you smashed the hook. 😀
