Weekend Writing Warriors: Andrea’s Snippet #42

Standard
Weekend Writing Warriors: Andrea’s Snippet #42

Every Sunday, the Weekend Writing Warriors share 8-10-sentence snippets from their works-in-progress on their blogs for others to read and comment on. Join the fun! Click on the link to see the full list.

The Unicornologist ~ High school freshman Hillary Noone, on a field trip to The Cloisters, receives a prophecy: she is destined to save the unicorn. Though she shrugs it off as being preposterous, soon life imitates art, and she finds herself in mortal danger.

It’s Hillary’s second night camping alone in the woods. She’s just crawled into her sleeping bag.wewriwa2

Moments later, the whispers began. Worthless! Stupid! Why don’t you just die? Go away! You’re not welcome here.

Hillary sat up and shuddered. She clamped her hands over her ears and rocked herself. She could still hear the taunting words.

Trembling and whimpering to drown out the voices, she clamped her eyes shut to deaden her sense of doom.

I know it’s short (the limit is ten sentences), but what do you think of this small excerpt from the end of Chapter 21? Any suggestions on how I can make it better? Please comment below.

The Unicornologist ~ High school freshman Hillary Noone, on a field trip to The Cloisters, receives a prophecy: she is destined to save the unicorn. Though she shrugs it off as being preposterous, soon life imitates art, and she finds herself in mortal danger.

A couple of snippets ago, Hillary spent her first night camping out in the woods. It didn’t go well. The next day, she tells Bob (the unicorn) all about it.

Looking into his intelligent eyes, she confided, “I had a bad night.”wewriwa2

Bob nodded knowingly.

“I’m afraid—”

Bob shook his head vehemently enough to knock Hillary’s caressing hand off his neck.

“You don’t think I should be afraid?”

Again, Bob shook his head vigorously.

“But creatures were watching me and growling…”

Bob’s eyes blinked. In them, Hillary read reassurance.

I know it’s short (the limit is ten sentences), but what do you think of this small excerpt from Chapter 21? Any suggestions on how I can make it better? Please comment below.

A Poem and a Blogging Prompt

Standard
A Poem and a Blogging Prompt

I recently wrote this poem as an exercise for a book I’m reading and working through, poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge. The assignment was to think of a time when an irreversible change took place in your life. I chose to list them:

 

Life shifters

New friendrandom-art-supplies
Car purchase
Graduation
Job loss
Job change
Marriage
Birth
Move
Debt repaid
Resignation
Illness
Death

Here’s my challenge to you: Consider the events in your life that made you change your direction, or select one from the list above. Express your experience and thoughts in the medium of your choosing, whether poem or prose, photography, drawing, painting, zentangle, music, or whatever. Post it on your blog, and add your link in the comments below.
