Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 9

Welcome to my ninth 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 just realized she had felt a weird buzz when she cut her hand on the crystal… And Action.



I went back to the table to take a better look at the crystal. About the size of a baseball, it had a relatively smooth bottom and several jagged edges on top; translucent dark green with little white swirls that appeared to be moving inside of it.

Clasping the crystal in my hand, I felt a little buzz or tingle again, “What kind of crystal is this? It looks like it’s moving; I’ve never seen anything like it,” I looked at Celine, who had a strange look on her face.

“I didn’t realize I had put that out; it’s not time yet,” Celine sighed and looked past me, shrugging her shoulders, “It’s an Amazonite crystal.”

Amazonite Crystal


“Amazonite; I didn’t realize they could be translucent.” I looked down and saw it was opaque, rather than the single shade of see-through green like before. Now there were different shades of green throughout and white swirls that looked like solid veins.

I am losing my mind; I’m going to have to go three towns over so nobody sees me check into the crazy house.

“No, you’re not,” said a firm voice that I’m sure, I had only heard in my head.


What do you think Sarette will do next?

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 10 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.
