WeWriWa #2

So, welcome to my second time participating in WeWriWa. I should have been here last week as well, but what can I say...I wasn't. This week, I'm going to share some more from my WIP (it's Fantasy, Good old-fashioned quest style). Ravyn and Lareina are in a cabin on an island with some Selkie men (two new characters) and they are soon joined by Dragons! If you read my last little snippet...well, this has nothing to do with that. If you didn't read it, but are dying to...it's right here...WeWriWa#1 Love to hear what you think : )



Ronan reached the window and peeked outside. “Ravyn, no,” he screamed, slamming himself against the door and knocking her backwards onto her bottom. “There’s two bloody dragons out there, they’ll eat ye alive!”
Ravyn glanced over at Lareina who had taken a seat by the fire and sat sipping tea. They both burst out laughing.
Ronan crouched down and reached a tentative hand out toward Ravyn’s head, “Ah bless me, did I knock ye so hard that ye hit yer head? Dragon’s are naught to laugh at.”
Ravyn shook her head, still giggling, “Are they both huge and red?”



Should you desire to join in on the fun, or peek at other eight line snippets...just click here WeWriWa!

  5. Hah! Always fun to have a giggle at another's unnecessary panic... Though it sounds like he's less overreacting and more uninformed.

  7. I figure the ladies know a bit more than Ronan. Poor guy. I'm sure they'll let him in on the secret soon. Fun energy in this snippet.

  8. I agree with the commenters above... it's hilarious to witness Ronan's panic against the backdrop of calm ladies drinking tea while two red dragons approach. I'm fascinated! I can't wait to find out what those dragons are up to! Great snippet and thanks for sharing!

  11. I take it that these Dragons are friends of Ravyn and Laveina. It seems by their reaction that they are not to be feared as Ronan, who knocked Ravyn to the floor had thought. They seem to have things well in control.

  12. There may be a little dragon riding in their future : )

  13. Lol, LOVE the voice here. I'm thinking these dragons are known to Ravyn and Laveina. Fun, fun!!!! Great 8!

  14. What a clever last sentence--"fearsome" dragons indeed--I'm hoping there's more of this scene next week *crosses fingers*

  19. Oh, I like this! We lived in rural Connecticut and our neighbor's cow was always getting loose. One day, good old Bossie stood in the middle of our street, tying up what little traffic we had. My sister went to the cow, to move her out of the road. A bug-eyed man in a car in front of the poor thing, rolled down his window and screamed, "Get away from that cow! It's a WILD COW! It can kill you!" I had the same reaction to this snippet as I did that day. Hysterical. Thanks for the laugh!

  20. I like Ronan's accent. And he seems so out of it compared to the other.
    I feel bad for laughing at him with them though.

    1. He's got a good heart and a good sense of humor...he'd probably laugh right along with you!
