#RainbowSnippets 10/14/2017 – Mike & Wes

I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. From their description: “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!).” Pretty cool, eh? Don’t forget to “Like” my Facebook page and/or my Facebook profile while you’re over there checking out this fantastic group!

This is from my WIP, an as yet unnamed story featuring Mike & Wes. The story is a from-the-ground-up rewrite of A Dream Come True, which was published back in February of 2009 at Torquere Press. The main themes of the story remain the same, and a number of familiar scenes are included, but there are quite a few changes, including a switch from alternating 3rd-person POV to a single 1st-person POV.

Scene background: For various reasons, Mike, who’s been out in his life (that’s now half a country away from where his family lives), has decided to come out of the closet to his family. Not something he wants to do over the phone, he’s flying home to do it and is more than a little stressed out. This scene thread opens with Mike getting on the plane.

Told from Mike’s 1st-person POV.

This week’s new snippet:

(Mike on the Plane) Part 3 – 14-Oct-2017

He hadn’t moved on. He stood there as if waiting to sit back down after letting me in. “I’m sorry.” I held up my boarding pass and pointed at the aisle seat. “Apparently, there’s some confusion. This is my seat, here.”

“You don’t mind, do you?”
