WeWriWa - "You are incorrigible..."


I'm baaaacckkk!  Didja miss me?  I had a kid home from college for a very few short days (anything less than a months visit is waaayyy too short!).  Then, I needed to go out of town to visit my momma in law.  So...I took a break.  But I can't stay away from all you lovelies, I just can't!

Welcome to my little corner of the world on a day when I'm sharing eight lines from my WIP with the Weekend Writing Warriors (and you, if you aren't one of them).  What's that?  Want to know how to become a raving warrior of literary bodaciousness?  Then click...here!  

I left off with Ravyn and Lareina coming clean with Selkies Murphy and Seamus as to who they are.  Seamus had his heart broken, but Ravyn knows they have to get off the island, so skipping a few lines and moving forward to finish this section of work we start with Ravyn speaking...




...Is there really no boat on this island,” asked Ravyn. She shifted her weight from side to side, anxious to get moving.

“There’s really no boat. What need have we for a boat?” Seamus took a sip of his wine, his eyes sparkled as he glanced at Ravyn, a big grin spreading across his cheeks. “I kissed the Princess, and the Princess kissed me!”

Ravyn shook her head, her dark hair swishing across her shoulders. “You are incorrigible.”

  2. He is!! (Incorrigible). :-) I like that he's going on about the princess kiss.

    I missed you, Millie! And I'm glad you're back. But I sure am glad you got your little girl back home for a bit. <3

  4. I did miss you! I always enjoy your snippets. I love how Seamus is recovering. Sounds like getting off the island will prove very interesting.

  5. Yes, you were indeed missed.
    I'm certainly worrying about how easy (or difficult) getting off the island will be - and how much of that is in the Selkies control. Great snippet

    1. These ladies are in control of some magic. They'll figure something out.

  6. You rascal. You know we all missed you. And now for Seamus and his lack of concern about the no-boat situation. As we say, no prob for his kind. Jolly good fun.

  7. Who needs a boat when there's been kissing? Nice snippet, as always.

  8. LOL Aw, those selkies! I'm kind of worried though about how they're going to get off the island. After all, if there is no boat they could be kept their against their will, no? Looking forward to more, Millie!

    1. Being stuck on the island is an option...but there are others.

  9. So, not TOO heartbroken then, bless him! :D

    Could they maybe share a bit of selkie magic and swim the ladies out of there?

  11. Welcome back! Seamus wasn't the only one grinning; I was too. Fun snippet!

  12. He's so helpful. The question is can they get off the island somehow. Perhaps if she can get him to focus, she can find out.

    Welcome back!

  14. Naughty, naughty, funny, funny selkies. I can think of a couple of ways they could get off the island. ;-)

    Welcome back! Thanks so much for sharing!
