Rainbow Snippets - 22/23rd Oct

Rainbow Snippets is a Facebook Group that invites authors to post 6 sentences of their work each weekend. It can be from anything you like, your current WIP, a recent release, the golden oldie that even you had forgotten you had written, or just a scrap of an idea (as long as it has 6 coherent sentences). Nothing of your own work worth mentioning? How about a 6 sentence review of your favourite LGBTQ+ story.

Another snippet from Village Love #2. For anyone that loved Resistance, this is Smudge's story. A snippet from Chapter 2.  (Unbetaed. Beware!)

While he waited for Mal to appear, Smudge rummaged in the fridge, certain that he still had a can of liquid inspiration in there somewhere. He straightened, triumphant, the slim can held aloft.

“Those energy drinks are really bad for you, you know.”

“Don’t you start.” Smudge popped the lid, in part just to be pedantic, and took a longer than normal pull from the can. “I get enough dire warnings from Adam. Anyway I thought you were a radiographer, Doctor Malik.”


  1. Ha! Love the defiance. (And, oddly, I was just thinking about an energy drink earlier today.)

  2. And now I want some liquid inspiration. Only mine comes in a wine bottle... ;)
    Great snippet!

  3. Smudge is a fun name. I like "liquid inspiration."

  4. Sounds like Mal & Smudge have become friends. :) Glad to see that. I love how Smudge just sticks out from the quiet, cozieness from the rest of the village.
