Snazzy Snippets: Food and First Pages

IT HATH RETURNED.

I'm continuing to co-host a bimonthly link-up with Emily @ Loony Literate, called Snazzy Snippets. For those who weren't around last time:
It’s an opportunity for writers! Every two months, we post a prompt or question for you to share a snippet of less than 500 words. It’s designed to let you have fun, analyse your work on a smaller level, or just write something to join in.

If you’re not a writer, or aren’t working on anything, don’t go back up the rabbit hole just yet. Read everyone’s wonderful snippets on the linky!
This is your chance to shine, grasshoppers, so comb through your WIPs for a snazzy snippet that fits one of our themes:

A snippet with food
or
A snippet you're really proud of
or
Your first 500 words

And of course you can do more than one in one or more snippets. It can be something you whipped up at 3AM yesterday, or lingering in your ms for a year. There are no rules. Just have fun, and remember to include your post URL in the linky!

Whether or not you're taking this chance to shine (pfft, why wouldn't you though), do take a look around everyone's links! I'll be sure to visit your snazzy snippets.

Still have questions? Snazzy Snippets now has its own page on the blog, with FAQs and more. Take a look!

Thoughts on this month's prompts? Which WIP would you excerpt if you join?

  8. Oh, I LOVE these prompts. As I've said before, I don't have any real snippets myself (and certainly none that I'm proud of!) but I do know that basically ALL of my snippets will involve food. Because food is life.

    1. I SHALL HOLD YOU TO IT. I knew the food prompt would be irresistible to everyone. The cake scene too, include that one too!
