Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 16

Welcome to my sixteenth 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 found the man of… I mean, in her dreams sitting in her back seat.



He chuckled and looked straight at me.

“Are you still reading my mind because you need to stop; there’s a lot going on up here.”

I pointed to my head while making the crazy sign, “I don’t even know who you are and you know my thoughts; that takes a lot of nerve—I don’t remember inviting you into my head!”

I’m rambling—stop talking…why is he smiling at me?

“Sorry, I won’t read your mind anymore, now that you’re ready to see me,” he paused, “Well, you’re going to see more strange things, but for now, we need to talk about—”

“Who are you? What is going on, this is it, isn’t it—the moment I realize I am totally and completely insane. I’m a paranoid psychotic, aren’t I? You’re a figment of my imagination, here to help me understand my craziness.”

“For God’s sakes, Sarette; you are not crazy, but you are very likely to drive me crazy if you don’t stop and listen,” he took an overly dramatic deep breath, “My name is Elwin. It’s a pleasure to meet you, finally. I’ve—”

Check back in next week for Weekend Writing Warriors ~ Snippet 17 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.
