Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 8

Welcome to my eighth Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet Sunday post! If you missed any of the previous posts, you can catch up on my Meanmna ~ #8Sunday page.

What you missed: Nothing but to refresh your memory, Sarette pretended not to hear the laugh behind her by answering Celine’s question about why she was there… And Action!



“My water candle burned up again,” I said as Celine gave another quick look behind me.

“I’ll get it!” Paige ran around the crystal table and past me, glancing and giggling to the door as if there was something there.

That’s it; I’m leaving here and checking into a mental hospital. What the hell is going on?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the feeling of being watched. The feelings had grown increasingly intense since last spring, and for the past week, I had been hearing and seeing things. Like laughing when no one is there and doors opening without assistance. Then there was the weird buzz I felt coming from the crystal that I had just cut my hand on.

Wait a minute. I did feel something, didn’t I?


Hmmmmm… Did she?

I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Let me know in the comments below!

Check back in next week for Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 9 of Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms!

But, if you can’t wait for next week…



Seventeen-year-old Sarette has always thought of her life as average, even a bit boring. She does well in school, has a loving mother and a loyal best friend, Mathew. Of course, she has her problems as well—cold Michigan winters, a long-lost father she knows nothing about, and the lack of a boyfriend. She also has the vague sensation that she is being watched by some unseen entity, but figures that means she’s average and crazy.

Nothing could be further from the truth . . .

Daearen isn’t much different than the human world.

Imagine a world where science is replaced with magic.

  1. Funny how we doubt ourselves when weird things start happening. It’s easier to think we are nuts than we are right! Nicely done, Emmy

  2. Oooh, oooh, I know the answer! (having read the sample off Amazon)
    Thanks for the reminder, though…I went over and snagged the full book for my Kindle.

  3. Crazy people don’t think they’re crazy, so I’m glad she’s questioning everything. Looking forward to finding out what exactly is going on.

  4. I knew that cut on her hand was going to have some significance! I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! I think she needs to broaden her thoughts a bit and roll with the crazy, maybe then she’ll get the answers. Besides, with those two acting funny about what’s behind her, methinks they might be a good place to start.
