Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to. Travis will give you his snippet tomorrow to spread things out. Expect separate posts from us this week and from here on out.
Okay, so last week was kinda rough; I applogize if last week’s post was super confusing. I don’t think I gave enough information leading in to help you guys jump in. So this week will be better.
So I’m working on a scene quite a ways into the novel. Surprise, surprise, Ilsi learns a crazy secret about her best friend: he’s an Animan. Which sort of has the same rules as being a werewolf, only in this world, you could turn into just about anything—so I guess a bit like Animorphs.
Ilsi finds out because Tyk transforms in front of her and as an animal attacks her and turns her into an Animan, too. This scene takes place after they’ve both spent a rough night in the woods and they’re both back to normal. Ilsi naturally has quite a few questions about what happened and what this will mean for the two of them.
“You kissed me,” Ilsi interrupted, “in case you were too delusional to notice. That’s how you brought this upon me.”
Tyk colored a bit, shaking his head.
“That’s ridiculous—you don’t pass a curse like this to someone else over a kiss,” Tyk answered. “Did I scrape you or something?”
“You’re just spinning me around,” Ilsi grumbled as she held her tangled hair up and away from her neck to help. “What is it?”
“You’ve got a gash down your spine—I truly am an epic asshole.”
There was a bit more exchange in between these lines, but I cut out what I could to keep it at eight sentences. Check out other snippets here. And comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well!
P.S. If you were cursed to be turned into an animal, which one would you prefer? Which would be the worst?
