WeWriWa—Svetlana and Kroshka


Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors and Snippet Sunday, weekly Sunday hops where writers share 8–10 sentences from a book or WIP. This week’s snippet immediately follows last week’s, when Pomeranian Kroshka came running into the Konevs’ tenement and demanded attention from visiting infant nurse Svetlana.

Svetlana is now holding Kroshka, and speaking with Ivan. This has been slightly modified to fit 10 lines. I’m going to be doing some overall revising on this book anyway, to go along with a new cover.

“She looks just like the little Pomeranian I used to have,” Svetlana says wistfully. “My cousin told me my sweet little Kroshka went to America with my father and five of my sisters.  Praise God, I’ll be reunited with my dear little dog soon, if she’s still in this world at her age.”

“What did you just say your dog’s name was?”

“Kroshka, since she was as tiny as a crumb when she was a puppy, and I thought it was such a cute, sweet, appropriate name.”

“Well, isn’t that something.  This dog’s name is also Kroshka.”

Svetlana smiles. “Perhaps I wasn’t as original as I thought.  May I feed her some meat?”

    Is this the beginning of a surprise reconciliation, or a coincidence? You’ve got me wondering.

    I think i sense a reunion here. How wonderful to be reunited with her dog after so long.


  6. Is it really a coincidence? Or is someone trying to help her along?


  7. Diane Burton says:

    I hope this is a reunion with her own dog. But then questions arise about her family. Good snippet.


  8. It’s a cute name. But I’m hoping it’s not a coincidence!


  9. P.T. Wyant says:

    I hope this is the reunion they’re all hoping for. (And if it is, using the dog to facilitate it is a great idea.)
