I am over at Unicorn Bell with Dear "My Writing Sucks!" Writer.
Venom is Donovan’s monster truck. I had a blast writing a scene where Donovan takes Beth on a ride in his truck and performs a few tricks for her. It was fun learning the ins and outs of these trucks, how they work, and about the tricks. I enjoyed it so much that I created a post to help anyone who may (for whatever reason) want to write a monster truck driving scene.
You can find that here: Writing About: Monster Truck Driving
Venom is neon green, my favorite color, with a black cobra posing to strike on the side. Hence the name. But Donovan explains it better than I do.
Seismic Crimes Teaser:
Beth examined the console with the curiosity of a six-year-old. “Why do you call your truck Venom?”
Their eyes locked.
“Because venom is fast and lethal.” He revved the engine, sending vibrations up their legs and spines. “Don’t worry,” he repeated. “There are three kill switches.”
When Beth blinked at him, he stepped on the gas pedal. The monster truck shot out of the garage. He maneuvered it around the building toward the course he had built to practice stunts. Earlier in the month, he had to rebuild the ramps that had gone flat and muddy from flooding.
Driving along the edge of the field, he forced the truck to go as fast as its engine would allow. Adrenaline coursed eagerly through his veins, like the methanol flushing through the engine.
Deadly, but addicting.
QUESTION: Would you ride in a monster truck?
