Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-10 sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
To provide a bit of background on this one, imagine flying on a dragon for the first time, and you’ve crash-landed in the woods during a storm. Yup, Ilsi’s having a bit of a rough time. In her search for shelter during the night and in the rain, she miraculously finds a cottage. I like fairytales, so there’s gotta be a cottage every so chapters.
“Is there someone out there? Gracious, it’s been a while since I’ve heard such a rude knock.” A wrinkly, old woman supported by a walking stick opened the door, holding a candlestick in her other hand. The flame shone on Ilsi’s shivering face.
“Let me in now, I beg you!” Ilsi said through gulps of desperate air. The old woman’s eyes suddenly widened and motioned with her free hand for someone to hurry to the door.
“Hurry, Gilly! I think she’s—”
Think she’s what? Think she’s what? I like that chapter break. Check out other snippets here. And comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well!
