Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday – Answering the Call of the Moon

weekendwritingHappy Sunday! Another week has disappeared through our grasp and I am happy to say that I spent much of that week absorbed in writing. I’m excited to share another little snippet of my NaNoWriMo project in all its unedited glory and I’m very grateful to the Weekend Writing Warriors for giving me the excellent opportunity to do this. Be sure to check out the official page at http://www.wewriwa.com. It’s a friendly blog hop where several authors gather to share 8 to 10 sentences of a current WIP and all are invited to join in the fun.

Last week I introduced my male protagonist, Hunter. This week, it feels only fair that I share a few sentences that feature my female lead, Elise. After a fitful sleep, she is drawn to the woods. What will she find?


And yet, somehow the moon called to her and soothed her racing heart. As if in a trance, she opened the front door and stepped out into it’s soft light. Immediately, she felt at ease. Without even bothering to turn around and grab her shoes, she began walking toward the woods, drawn to some unseen force that she couldn’t reconcile.

“Maybe I am still dreaming”, she thought. She closed her eyes and felt the chilly autumn air caress her hair. The silk of her nightgown was not enough of a barrier but she didn’t notice the cold or the dampness of the earth as mud sank between her toes. Elise walked, knowing she had a purpose without knowing what that purpose might be.


She heard his voice but the darkness under the umbrella of skeleton trees with their dry leaves bristling overhead kept her from locating him.


I hope that you have enjoyed my snippet and I look forward to your feedback. Be sure to check out the other participating authors at http://www.wewriwa.com Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    You have a beautiful lilt to your prose. This isn’t a genre I gravitate to naturally, but your cadence pulled me right in and held me. I’m looking forward to reading more!
