Oh boy, it's Saturday evening, and I'm prepping my installment for Weekend Writing Warriors. This is always such a great time of the week for me. Not only do I get to share eight lines of my WIP with whomever should happen along, but I also get to read lots of fantastic snippets in a variety of genres. I never know what will be on the menu, and that always gets my curiosity peaked...my literary senses salivating...it makes me hungry for words and where they'll take me. I always leave satiated, but wanting more. If you want to know how to join the smorgasbord, or see the menu of this week's offerings, click the link HERE!!!
Last week, we left our harpy in a little fishing shack talking to some of her friends...Medina said the boy pulled the alarm bell and Joff asked her what happened next.
“You should have seen all those crazy rugged sailors getting their shorts a-twist, and all over little old me.”
“I can imagine. They are afraid of magic,” Joff stated, shaking his head.
“Not afraid enough if you ask me,” Medina crowed, “They shot a harpoon at me.”
Seamus patted at the raw scrape along his cheek. “They seem to be fond of those,” he growled.
“Then, I got a bit mad, I said some things…,” She blushed, lowering her head and looking up from under her lashes.
Joff burst out laughing, “Did you teach those sailors a word or two?”
Here's the beauty of writing and sharing. This is my first draft...and written during NaNo, where you are encouraged to write and not edit...which I did. I realized after getting this installment ready today, that I hadn't written of them shooting a harpoon at her...they had only lobbed cannonballs. So...I'll need to go back and add a little more excitement to her earlier encounter. I mention this, because you all are so sharp, I know someone would kindly and rightly point out to me, that she hadn't been shot at with a harpoon. Today, also introduced another character, Seamus, who happens to be a Selkie. Some of you might remember him from before, he's met Ena in earlier snippets : )
Sunday (today), I am heading off to my first Comic Con. I've never been to one, but it seemed like such a fun thing to do. I think I'm gonna go get my geek on : ) So, if I don't get to your tidbits today, please know within the next day or so, I'll make it happen!
