WeWriWa -


It's Sunday, fun-day, reading everyone's eight sentence snippets, Gimme another one-day!  I look forward to reading through these short blurbs every week.  After you've read this one...you can head over to WeWriWa and check out all the other wonderful authors!
Last week, I gave you snippets from Return of the Crown, and I showed you the beginning of Ravyn and Ena's acquaintance.  If you remember, Ena came crashing down on Ravyn's campsite and set her raft on fire...
Ravyn shot out from her hiding place. “No!  Stop!  Please!”
The ruby head snapped in her direction, wild golden eyes locking on Ravyn.  Acrid smoke plumed from flaring nostrils.  The dragon threw its head back snarling, before shooting a huge gout of flame at Ravyn.  Ravyn flung herself behind a huge boulder, feeling a hot stream of air roar past, the scent of singed hair greeted her.

Love your comments, they truly make my day!

  6. Knowing Ena's protective relationship of Ravyn, it's really astonishing to witness how they first got to know one another... you've got me glued till the next scene appears! I really love your way with words... each word makes an impact, nothing overly or underdone... I'm learning a lot from your style - thanks!

    1. Thank you Susan, I am learning as I go...and at times agonize over word choice for days...switching back and forth. But, it hopefully makes for a better read.
