Weekend Writing Warriors / #8Sunday

weekend writing warrior

Hello everyone,

Since Six Sentence Sunday ended, I have not shared or posted in quite some time. My friend Teresa Cypher *waves hello, told me about the Weekend Writing Warriors. It is fun and easy to join in and share what you are working on!!

The Rules are simple ~ Every Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished. Visit other participants and offer opinions, critiques, support. Writers hanging out with writers, a good time with a great group of people.

My first post for the WWW begins in Starlight Cove at the end of the prologue that will launch the reader into my first novel, Awaken.


Tori pleaded, “Daddy please don’t leave me.”

Dark hair whipped around her face as she struggled to reach him. What was happening?    

“Magic won’t let him stay Satori. We have to say good-bye”  

Good-bye? Magic was a gift.

Daddy walked into the pool of moonlight and blew her a kiss. Her eyes continued to spill tears as the father she adored evaporated into a thousand slivers of light, spun into a vortex, and spilled into the pond.

Daddy was gone. Magic took him.

Please make sure to visit all the wonderful authors this Sunday by clicking the banner above. It’s so much fun and I’ve made so many amazing friends!!!

Thank you to everyone that reads and comments, I appreciate it!!


I weave myth, magic and fairy tales into my paranormal novels. I would rather spend my days with sirens and shapeshifters than live in the real world.

  • *Waving hello backatcha! I’m so glad to see you here. 🙂

    I learned so much from this snippet, Maryellen. I didn’t know that “Tori” was short for “Santori”.

    Lots of details, and I really like the description of her father vanishing. This is ominous–from a child’s POV, “Magic took him.”

  • Interesting snippet, raises all sorts of questions that would definitely keep me reading further. Great 8!

  • Glad to see you back again, and I love the description of the father dissolving into the moonlight.
