Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 13

Welcome to my thirteenth 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! Sarette woke up in her dream, ran through the forest, and found a man she didn’t recognize on the beach who called her by name.



I glanced around, looking for a weapon; Wait, this is a dream; nobody can hurt me in a dream, I thought as I took a deep breath and asked, “Who are you?”

He smiled and crossed his arms in front of his chest.

Yep, he works out.

He chuckled and looked over at me like he could hear my thoughts.

I blushed for only a moment before I remembered this was my dream and said, “I asked you who you are.”

That sounded much more confident than I felt, God, I’m even a wuss when I’m sleeping.

“You really need to stop putting yourself down,” he said, “Also, for the record, you are not going crazy. This is all normal . . . well, mostly normal,” and then he smiled.

God, he has a great smile, I wonder how many years he had braces?

His hair looked almost black and was run through with dark red; his eyes were dark green, and his lips totally kissable; why do I keep looking at his lips?

He laughed again, “If you would like me to stop hearing what you’re thinking, you should probably wake up and talk to me; I’m the guy sitting in your back seat,” he winked and disappeared.



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 14 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.
