G. Share a snippet from one of your favorite pieces of prose you’ve written and explain why you’re proud of it.

I think I'll choose a selection from my 'A Ghost in Mind' since it's the freshest in my mind. ^^

"Even her sullen expressions--eyelashes pointed south and cheeks lacking rosiness--upstaged any cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Tiffany had mistaken her inclination to stare at the woman (when Jessica wasn't already staring at her) for jealousy. It started off as such, then molded into something new. Something alien, unacceptable and god, it’s her ex’s girl on the side! Jessica was practically a widow at that point.

While they drank and bickered earlier, Tiffany caught herself flirting. Thank goodness for Jessica’s debilitating self-involvement or she would have surely noticed."

One big reason I chose is because I tend to write in bite-sized paragraphs. Though these aren't particularly long, it was nice to find a little chunk to discuss.

This is from Chapter Three of the 'Ghost' fic. I was extremely nervous about this chapter because it'd be JeTi's first sexual encounter. The multi-shot had only six parts, so I was afraid of rushing the intimacy. However, no matter how I scrolled through my story, it had to happen when it did. I'd always wanted to made a straight-up ~adult fic with angst on the side. 'Ghost' was an opportunity!

I like this segment in particular because, in a nutshell, it explains Tiffany's true train of thought while she interacted with Jessica. Through that frustration, the attraction couldn't be ignored. And, near the end, she still put in a dig at Jessica for being self-involved. Conflicted, but she was much more secure with acting on her feelings. So, when she made her advance, it softened the "wait, what?!" blow of them making out. Tiffany assessed the situation: ex's widow, alone in her house, and possible mutual attraction. Build-up can be just as sexy as the act itself, after all. :33

Thanks for asking, bb. *hugssss*
