Weekend Writing Warriors — May 03, 2015

This post is for the Weekend Writing Warriors, a blog hop for writers where we share 8 to 10 sentences of a current writing project. (I’ve been wanting to participate in this for a while, but I keep forgetting until it’s too late to link up!) The following excerpt is from the first book of my ~fantasy series.

Quick context: Charley is running through the forest during an supernatural rainstorm, and realizes he’s being followed by some kind of ghost/phantom/unearthly creature that is beaming with white light and which has taken on the shape of a child.

As Charley looked at this phantom, the bracelet began to burn. He shook his arm, as if that would do any good, and when he did, the vision of the ghostly boy stuttered. When Charley let the bracelet be still, like a jostled candle flame settling, the child burned brightly once more.

“You’re in trouble,” the boy said.

“You’re not real,” Charley countered.

The boy took a step closer. The leaves under his feet showed no disturbance.

“They’re watching you. Can’t you feel it?”

Come to think, the hair along Charley’s arms did begin to stand, the back of his head itching with that inexplicable burn of unseen eyes upon him. He jerked around; the forest was dark, but was that motion he saw in the shadows?

Welp, that’s all for now! This was fun. 😀 If you’d like to see more entries, click the link below:

  1. “They’re watching you. Can’t you feel it?” That is a spooky snippet! Nicely done!

    Putting on my moderator’s hat now. Please be careful not to go over ten sentences. 🙂 Wewriwa has a policy change going into effect next weekend. I wrote about it on my blog at


  2. So…is this going to be published soon? I’m pretty interested in this, simply because it sounds like there’s some thrill and maybe horror in it? I like to read a little horror and if it’s truly as hair-raising as this looks to be, I think you have done very well 🙂


    1. Haha! *blushes* I don’t know how soon it’ll be published, though I do have some agents looking at the manuscript right now!

      There’s definitely elements of horror and suspense. I like my fantasy creepy and hair-raising. 🙂
