It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-10-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
After last week’s excerpt, Allie stomps off, leaving Hillary and Robin to wonder if they really saw a unicorn if Allie feels so strongly that it doesn’t exist.
“The unicorn? Yes, I really saw it. The question is, how come Allie didn’t?”
“Maybe she didn’t look soon enough,” Hillary said.
Robin shrugged. “Maybe, but I was pointing right at it. And another thing–if a unicorn lives in these woods, how come everybody doesn’t know about it?”
“The adjective most often used to describe a unicorn is elusive. Maybe nobody knows about it because it hides well.”
“Or maybe not everybody can see it,” Robin countered.
I know it’s short (the limit is ten sentences), but what do you think of this small excerpt from Chapter 11? Any suggestions on how I can make it better? Please leave your comments below.
