Happy WeWriWa to you. What? You don't know what that means? Well, every Sunday, authors from around the globe post eight sentences from their work in progress or from a published work. Then, they go around to each other's sites and read and comment and commiserate. Do you have to be an author to participate? Heck no, you can read all these great snippets even if you don't post your own! Follow the link here for a list of all the participants. There's almost every genre imaginable represented!
For my bit of eight this week, we are continuing where we left off last week. Ena, an angry mother dragon, has listened to Princess Ravyn tell of her evil aunt, unravelling protection spells, quests to return crowns, and rightly asked the question...but what has this to do with my egg?
Here's Ravyn's answer:
“Since the invisibility spell is gone, my aunt is able to locate me through magic, and she’s trying to eliminate me. I think she stole your egg, hoping you’d kill me, thinking I took your baby.” She held her breath waiting for the dragon’s reaction.
The dragon appeared to ponder her words. “Why shouldn’t I kill you, then attack your aunt and take my egg back? Dragons care nothing of humans or their petty wars and struggles.”“My aunt is very strong in the use of the Dark Arts. If you attack her castle, you will be captured or killed yourself.”
I love your comments, so please feel free to share. And, have a wonderful, restful Sunday!
