Bewitched by JK Candlen – Weekend Writing Warriors #10 March 28, 2015

Last week we ended the first scene in Chapter 1 with Iris having an odd feeling that her friend Carol was in trouble. Is her second sight playing tricks on her again?

No it’s not. Carol has gotten in a little too deep and thinks her actions won’t have any repercussions. Will she be able to talk herself out of this one? Maybe. Then maybe not. You’ll just have to keep coming back and find out.

And don’t forget to check out my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors. You won’t be disappointed.

     Carol stopped and listened. Nothing.

     God it was cold. The frigid wind froze her fingers around the flashlight. Too bad her gloves were in her car, she could use them now. Even her jacket gave little protection from the blast of tiny needles bombarding her each time the wind swept through the trees.

     As she stood at the edge of the parking lot she pointed the flashlight left then right to scan the woods. The isolation and stillness of the night was eerie.

We are at the end of the first scene in Chapter 1. It’s a tad longer than 8 sentences, but I wanted to wrap this up so we can find out what Carol is up too next week.

Don’t forget to visit my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors too. I’m loving the stories and can’t wait to read what will happen next.

    A cloud of impending disaster swirled around her friend. Iris could feel it every time she saw her.

How much can one person intervene into someone else’s life? So Iris let it drop. There was no way to

force Carol to seek help unless she wanted too.

       “Come on Bev. Let’s go inside. We need to wash our faces.” Iris said as she started to walk

towards the backdoor. Carol kept creeping into her thoughts. The urge to check on her was

overwhelming. She knew her friend was in trouble, but didn’t know what to do.  She will give her a

call. Who cares if it’s one thirty in the morning.

      “I’ll come in for a minute. It’s late and I’ve got to go.” Bev said following Iris into the kitchen.

In last week’s snippets, Iris just gave Bev the incantation to recite while using the love potion on Rick. But something else is brewing and it has nothing to do with magic. Hmmmm, a dark cloud is gathering over Tobias and guess who gets caught under it.

Don’t forget to visit my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors too. The stories are a fantastic read and you will enjoy them as much as I do.

     “Yes, I know I can do this.” Bev said as she watched Iris pour the liquid from the pot into a glass bottle.

      “Have you talked with Carol lately?” Iris asked changing the subject.

      “No, I haven’t seen or talked to her in weeks. I think she and Frank are having issues.”

      That was an understatement Iris thought. What husband would go along with what Carol was doing?

Yea! It’s the weekend. The weather is turning and I can feel spring in the air. So in celebration, I thought to add a few more sentences to this installment of Weekend Writing Warriors.

And don’t forget to check out my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors too. The snippets are great reads and I enjoy the blog hop. It is so much fun.

     But Iris hoped Bev wasn’t setting herself up for another heartache. What was the old adage, ‘You can’t buy love?’

     Rick seemed to be a nice guy, but Iris didn’t really know him well. Could the love potion hurt? Probably not. Unless something went wrong while brewing the potion. Iris explained the risks to Bev earlier but she would restate them, especially after the explosion.

     “Remember Bev, you must chant this three times as you sprinkle the potion.” Iris said as she handed Bev a scroll with the incantation.

We are forever together under this moon,

Our hearts entwine and love will bloom.

The Sundowners

Spending the day working from home, I am going to take some time to pick up an old draft from my first NaNoWriMo. The story has been circling in my head for awhile, screaming to get out. It’s a historical Sci Fi about a man who comes face to face with a past he never knew and a future he is destine to follow.

Here is a picture of what the first scene is about.

The Roar of Pitch Madness

I just participated in my first #PitchMadness and as I anticipated, I didn’t make the cut. Yes, it’s a little bit deflating but as a newbie, it gave me insight to the roar writers can make. The Twitter feed was exploding and I stood on the sidelines with eyes as big as saucers.

As the clock ticked slowly to the big reveal, the frenzy increased and I thought I was going to swoon. Don’t laugh, I really felt faint. Finally the titles were being tweeted, the roar grew. There were some amazing titles that with just a few words, I was intrigued to know more about the stories.

So here I am sitting in Denny’s with my Sunday Night Writer’s Group drowning my sorrows in dark and bitter brew and a hot fudge ice cream sundae. All and all, it was a good learning experience and I look forward to #PitMad Twitter Pitch party on March 11th.
