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.

  1. Enjoyed the snippets enough to buy a copy…and it’s finally to the top of my TBR queue, so began reading through the rest of the novel. Good stuff.

  2. A dream man who says he’s there in her reality – not sure whether she should be alarmed or excited. Considering her reaction to him in her dream, probably the latter… This is good fun – I’m intrigued to see where it’s going.

  3. There’s something terribly arrogant about those who know what’s going on and choose to be enigmatic about it. Great snippet, Emmy.

  4. Oh I like him. SO much. I love how you described him in short, crisp sentences, especially the “Yup. He works out.” line. The whole snippet was fantastic, one of my favourites so far. Really awesome job. I loved the ending, and can’t wait to figure out who he is and what he’s up to! He seems like trouble. 😉

  5. He seems nice. Even if he is in the back seat uninvited. Should we trust him? At least he’s got a point, she should definitely stop putting herself down.
