Here, There be a Writer

As the world falls down....

It's WIPpet Wednesday. WooHooooo! The day I can share a bit of what I have been working on. WIPpet Wednesday is the brain baby of K.L. Schwengel. The muse and beauteous writer. Go see what she's up to or add your own link to the list HERE.


It's based on math of today's date. 6/24/2015. Take any part of that and fins a snippet of your WIP. I am going to use the day 24: 2 + 4 + 1 = 7 lines. One extra line for luck.

I turned, “Don’t worry, Callie. It’s only just past the Elms Gate.” I pointed back towards the elm trees. “Once there, I can tell you. I promise.” I turned my body and taking a step over a small downed pine tree. I fell farther than I intended, feeling like the world was falling around me.

  1. Ooh! One of my favorite songs (scenes!)... Been so very long since I watched Labyrinth, but that song is in my playlist.

    Oh! Does that mean the song has something to do with the snippet beyond an actual fall? I mean, it does feel like you're setting us (as well as Callie) up for something here

  2. I love Labyrinth! I've lost track of how many times I've seen it, though it's been years since the last time. I want to watch with my kids. Well, and also: David Bowie! LOL.

    Nice snippet. The pacing is just right--the suddenness of the end matches the sensation of "OMG falling!" And while I don't wish a fall on anyone, I do wonder what adventures are ahead for Callie and the narrator (provided no one is dead!).

  3. Labyrinth! Love that movie. Now I'm wondering where this fall is going to take Callie and whoever is narrating...
