Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns. How are the NanoWriMo-ers doing? :-) If you're doing Nano this year, and are looking for writing buddies you know, our Jess: Whimsical Quests of a Curious Mind has started a thread on the nanowrimo site. It's here: http://nanowrimo.org/forums/writing-groups-and-clubs/threads/181417
Now, down to business. :-) Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
Set up: The MC was vanished without a trace for two years, then returned "without a trace" too. She'd been found in the desert alone after having just given birth. She was investigated for foul play in the disappearance of her newborn.
The book is written in three parts. (1.) Her journal entries in first person, then ( 2.) her "reality" day to day life while she tries to get her life back, written in 3rd, and then(3) her dream sequences also written in 3rd. Today's snippet jumps ahead to page 7, to a journal entry.
I’ll be honest with you. May as well just get this out there. Though I can’t remember when or how, I'm positive that I was abducted, and that the man who took me wasn’t human. It’s okay if you want to laugh. Believe me, you wouldn’t be the first.
Have you ever heard of Occam’s razor, Rayanne? Maybe it seems simplistic, but using that method, alien abduction is the easiest way to explain where I was for two years. I hope that time will tell.
I'm not happy yet with that last sentence. The one I'm looking for hasn't clicked yet. :-)
