Weekend Writing Warriors: July 14, 2013

Weekend Writing Warriors
It's #8sunday again! To join the gang, check out the rules HERE, it's super easy and tonnes of fun.

Last week I said that I'd start posting sentences from The Legend of the White Raven today. I hope you'll forgive me for changing my mind. I will totally post it soon, but for this week, I wanted to run with my hot hand, which has been working on a story so old, and so secret, that it isn't even in the Lore of the Islands. It's the Legend of the Sleeping Fox. I hope you like it (even though it's only 7 sentences, so far)!

 



There is only one person in all the world that knows of the Little Fox, and he has not yet been born. 

She sleeps in her den in the forest that has never been seen. 

She waits for him to come. 

She waits and dreads, as all sentinels do. 

His awakening will bring with it the Great Change. 

The Great Change will bring with it, She-Who-Left. 

When She-Who-Left returns, the world will burn.

"Morpheus" by Lindsey Carr


Don't forget to check out excerpts from the other writing warriors. I dare you not to get addicted to some of these great stories!

    2. There's so much Truth tucked away in these few 7 lines... it's like you are breaking through the barrier of illusion here. At least, that is what I'm sensing. Reality, is all about breaking our illusions, embracing the "Great Change" in our own selves first, and then living life on our own terms... and I'm hoping you will write soon about She-who-left... I'm wondering where she's off to and what's happening to her! Thanks for sharing, A. J. !

    3. Wow, Susan, I'm touched that this snippet inspired such thoughtfulness. A writer can't hope for much more than to have her readers think about the story and how it relates to our real lives. Thank you so much. <3

  3. Beautiful illustration, first of all...loved the prose. I'm with Susan Stuckey, very much like a poem. Intriguing, ominous...terrific snippet!

    I didn't post this week. I'm just out visiting, but didn't want anyone to waste time looking for my post. :-) Have a good week. :-)

      I love trolling the internet (Pinterest) for pics to match up with my writing, it really helps keep the inspiration alive. ;)

    1. Thanks Millie! No one wants the world to burn, that's for sure. Hopefully there is someone out there that will help the Little Fox save the world. ;)
