April has been such a crazy month and I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going. Always expect the unexpected, folks...scroll to the bottom of the post for a funny video on that topic. On with the challenges!
#AuthorsChallenge2019 Days 15 - 18
Day 16 - Your Dream Writing Life - I would love to own a little cabin somewhere with a small fireplace and a wingback chair. LOL But any of these three pictures would make a lovely writing area if my writing ever takes off.
#AprilAuthorInspiration Days 15 - 18
She reached the far side of the clearing. Pounding footsteps behind her sent her into quick hiding. Just as another pain hit, a leather-booted leg stepped into her hiding spot. In spite of her condition, she gripped the thick ankle with both hands intending to escape, no matter the cost.
Day 15 - Saddest Scene You've Ever Written - I don't know if which is the sadder scene, the one I shared on IG or the one above this text, or one I haven't shared at all! I do know when I wrote these, I was moved to tears and the larger part tears at my heart as a mother. I lost two babies through miscarriage and it left me hollow and grieving. I can only imagine what it must be like to have to give your baby up for adoption, knowing that baby is still alive and you still may never see them again. But at least there's a possibility, whereas with miscarriage... *sigh*
That being said, this is only the second incarnation of the scene at the bottom and it won't show up in the final manuscript. I hope to use it as fodder for a short story later on.
#WWFChallenge2019 Days 15 - 18
Zec Inessi sees dreams. Who doesn't, right? But these are prophetic dreams. Zec's gift could mean exile for him if the Divini'I discover his secret. When confronted by the nosy law-keeper, Shi Malaki, Zec's parents decide he must travel to Gild'n Shrine to secretly complete his m'sa'filam (pilgrimage). Such a treacherous path to the far north requires a trustworthy guide. They seek the help of Master Tor Gervell, sending Zec off with the traditional blessing: “Walk well the path which lies before you.” But have they made their move in time?
Day 18 - Blurb for your current WIP - I would /love/ to have your opinions on this blurb. I've edited and revised it two or three times...but does it pack a hard enough punch? Does it grab you and leave you hungering for more of this tale? *shrugs* I won't know unless someone tells me!
As promised...the funny...
