#1linewed – Nod

The Haunted Pen - #1linewed, Nod

Every Wednesday writers gather on Twitter to submit postings under the #1lineWed (One-Line Wednesday) hashtag organized by the Mystery/Romantic Suspense chapter of Romance Writers of America @RWAKissofDeath.

Some writers post short passages from their work, while others write pieces especially for the theme of the week. Listed below is a selection of my offerings and some of my favorite posts by other authors for this week. You can follow me on Twitter at @dmbauthor
