WeWriWa - a sad song filled the air

Jeepers, Creepers, I've got good reads for your peepers.  Jeepers, Creepers...WeWriWa's the place for your eyes!  Oh I sure do love the month of October and all the fun it entails!  But I also love each and every Sunday, no matter the month.  Because all over the globe, fantastic authors post eight to ten sentences, tidy little snippets of their work, just to share with the likes of you and me.  You never know what kind of clever you will find.  For their are all styles of writing and many different genres to choose from.  So, if you'd like more than my mere share...click the link above.  Trust me, it's like...magic!

I skipped ahead a bit from last week.  I'm still posting from Return of the Crown, just so you can meet Ravyn and Blade in their earlier days.  They have escaped down the cliff and are now heading through the forest. 

As noon neared, a sad song filled the air.  It was unlike anything Ravyn or Blade had ever heard, as if someone were playing a mournful tune on a trumpet.  They followed the music to a clearing in the trees.  The sound rose from a deep pit in the ground.  They leaned forward, peering down.
      A unicorn stallion stood alone, head hung low.  Spying them, the snow-white unicorn tossed its head, the woeful tune changing.  Rising in a wild crescendo, its song shrilled in rage.

So, you've met Ena my favorite dragon in past posts.  Now, you are meeting another friend of mine!  Hope your week has been wonderful.  I've been having fun getting ready for Halloween.  Check out my pumpkin torch project : )

WeWriWa - I have a plan

I'm ready to give a warrior whoop!  It's that time again for WeWriWa.  The weekly blog hop that allows you to sample the writing style of so many incredible authors.  Eight sentences of literary joy at a time, that's what you get!  Click on the above link to find more of my fellow authors, or to find out how you can join, because the more the merrier!
Last week Ravyn and Blade had reunited after a very long separation.  But, they are on the middle of a cliff face, some very nasty people are chasing them, and they need to figure out how to get down.  After last week's embrace, Blade has taken a moment to survey their options.

The ledge they were standing on overhung the cliff below.  Lying on his stomach, he looked over the edge.  Rising he winked at Ravyn.  “I have a plan.” 
Grabbing the lip of the cliff, he swung over the edge, hanging for a moment. Then his hands slipped free, and he was gone.  Ravyn gasped, then heard, “Ravyn, there’s a large ledge here.  Swing over, and I’ll catch you.”

Thanks for swinging by and checking in.  Any opinions or thoughts?  I'd love to hear them!  Last week, my word color choices were like a candy corn...this week?  A pumpkin.  I'm in the mood for Halloween!!!!
