Wewriwa and the week that got away

It’s that time again, Weekend Writing Warriors, when bloggers gather to share their writing snippets.  Click on the link to check out the other participants and sign up if you have a snippet you want to share.

This was a strange week.  I fell of the a-z wagon because I was seized by a ravenous plot bunny.  I ended up writing over 16K words on a story that I had no plans to write.  The idea only came to me on Monday, and my brain refused to focus on anything else.

So, that happened.  My plot bunny refuses to let it die, so I’ll be finishing the story tomorrow and revising it next week.  Wish me luck.  Here’s a snippet from said story.

 

That smile again, so innocent, but equally knowing.  “What you should be asking is what I am.”

Cam tried to stand up and a dizzy spell knocked him back down.  “What are you?”  Slurring again, like his mouth wasn’t working right. 

Roman opened his mouth as if he was going to yawn, and four pointed teeth slid from his gums, like hidden needles. 

Cam jumped backward, but it was like moving through water, or syrup.  His legs didn’t want to cooperate.  “What the hell is wrong with me?  I can’t think straight.”

“Yeah, sedatives will do that.” 

 

I could give context here, but what’s the fun in that :-)  I have no idea what I’m going to do with this story once I’m done, because it’s very different from my usual style.  Wish me luck!

Cheers!

  1. Sounds like this plot bunny has teeth (I’m irresistably reminded of the vorpal bunny from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!). Intriguing snippet – sounds like Cam is in trouble…
