Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors 11/23/14



Welcome to my 13th Sunday Snippet ~ Weekend Writing Warriors post! This week’s snippet takes place immediately after last week’s snippet that you can find here. Elwin just walked out on top of the water and…



“You see, I’m not controlling the water.
I can ask it to do certain things, and if it wants to, it will do what I ask.
So the Phish shirt is me having fun, rather than being a fan.”
“You talk as if water is a living, breathing thing,” I said.
“Not breathing, but certainly living.
All of nature is connected and balanced, and it’s our job here to make sure that the balance remains.
Do you want to try?”
Without giving it a moment’s thought, I walked out on the water and came right up to him.
His mouth dropped open, which I thought was funny and made the “o” shape with my mouth the way he had.
“I’ve never seen anything like that,” he said as he tucked a stray curl behind my ear.


Do you wonder why Elwin is shocked that Sarette just did the same thing he did?
Check back in next week to find out and… it’s here!
The big reveal of who Sarette is!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet! Let me know in the comments below.
But if you can’t wait until next week…


Meanmna: Book One of the Daearen Realms



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.
