In spite of the busyness of life, I've been surprising myself by keeping up with two writing challenges and my commitment to blog every day in January. I have to say, though, that I'm really looking forward to throttling back to two or three blog posts per week. It's been harrowing. I know my limits and I'm coming really close to them.
I've definitely enjoyed my own challenge and the way it's pushed me to achieve some interesting goals in my own work. I like how it's opened up my mind to some great possibilities for my current WIP, Over Land & Under Stone. Read on to see how I responded to yesterday's challenges.
#writingthesenseschallenge Day 23 - Sounds Refined
A mewling cry pierced the air of the grotto. The five moons beamed rays through the natural skylight high above. Twisting branches of iwista trees which clung to the steep, rocky walls painted misshapen fingers of shadow and light across the boulder-strewn floor. A young woman writhed on a patch of soft yellow mazh bathed in the silvery glow. She wailed once again. The midiva and a Genzetti couple were the only witnesses to her struggle. The latter had sworn to adopt the reluctant babe should its imi’I breathe her last.
#fantasywipjanuary Day 23 - How diverse is your world?
If you've been following my blog, you'll know Y'Dahnndrya's pretty diverse. Two suns, five moons, six clans, a race of beings from Y'Dahnndryan mythos, two basic religions with one of them having one creator deity and six different interpretations; the other having a pantheon. There are also lots of imaginary plants and animals. If that's not diverse enough for you, then I guess you might be dissatisfied with my answer. LOL
If you've been playing along with the challenge, how did you do with yesterday's prompt? Care to share it with others? Feel free to share in the comments below. Or if you prefer, share on your social media site and use the hashtag (#writingthesenseschallenge). I'd love to see what you've come up with!
