Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 15

Welcome to my fifteenth 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 just closed her eyes in her dream…



My face felt cold and wet and was pressed cockeyed against the window.

Great, yea me; I’m sure I’m looking super-hot with my face smashed against the window and drool running down my chin; can’t wait until these pictures land on Instagram.

I lifted my head off the glass then heard a deep voice from the backseat say, “I’m not going to put any pictures on Instagram or Facebook, or any videos on YouTube; I promise.”

“Please don’t kill me; take whatever you want!”

I grabbed my purse and whipped it over the seat without looking.

“Didn’t we just go over this; I do not have an axe, I am not a sociopath, you are not crazy, and we need to talk. . .Sarette, please look at me.”

I slowly opened my eyes but didn’t turn around, “Dreams are not real,” I whispered, and started repeating a mantra. “This is not real; this is not real; this is not real.”

“Sometimes dreams are real, Sarette,” he said softly, “I promise I am not going to hurt you; please turn around.”

Was he pleading; why would an axe murderer beg to see me?

I slowly turned around and gasped, “It’s you,” the man of my dreams…er… I mean, the man in; in my dreams not of.


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 16 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.
