Weekend Writing Warriors – Orpheus and the Camera Man 2

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

It was time for a change, so I started sharing snippets from my my modern fantasy short, Orpheus and the Camera Man


Snippet 1

Tony leaned over and fixed Marshall with a hard stare. “Why didn’t you ever tell me you had a high psi rating?”

“Well . . . I haven’t known for long, never learned to do much with it, and it hasn’t exactly come up in conversation, man. Why is it coming up in conversation now?”

“The Roads to the Afterlife, man! I’ve been consulting holy men, trying to find out what happened to Felicity. She’s stuck in the Greek underworld, possibly an attendant of Hades’ court, and they bargain with mortals, sometimes. You’ve read the story of Orpheus, right?”

    Sounds like an exciting read!

    Nice snippet. I’m guessing Marshall is a reserved man. I’m wondering why Tony is bringing all of this up now?


  3. Yeah…making deals with Hades, that might work out well…
    Interesting snippet.


  4. Intriguing, makes me want to keep reading (I love mythology-based stories). Just one question, do they both need to say “man”? Took me a bit out of the flow…but great snippet!

    I’m with Veronica about the “man” thing. Other than that…this has me intrigued : )


  6. Excellent snippet even without knowing the context!


  7. Botanist says:

    Knowing nothing about the story, this snippet raised loads of intriguing questions for me.

    BTW – agree with other comments about “man”. IMO, the second instance feels like a better fit with the surrounding dialogue.


  8. Poor Felicity! But I suspect it will make a good story telling us how they rescue her. 😀 Good 8! 😉


  9. I’m really enjoying the way these two characters interact in this snippet!

    As I remember the last deal Hades made regarding returning from the underworld didn’t end too well. They’d better watch out. But to contemplate rescuing Felicity from there is a great heroic gesture. Well done!
