Weekend Writing Warriors – Never Found 7

December 14, 2014

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Good morning! I’m sharing eight more sentences from my Nano project “Never Found.” It’s hard to believe that November is over, isn’t it? My main character, Tricia, has been woken by a mysterious blonde stranger at her apartment…

“Could everybody in your family do magic?” Tricia prodded.

“My mom and my brothers can only change to wolf form and back,” Candice said. “Dad does that, plus some energy projection. It’s basically like being able to fire a gun, except you don’t need the gun or any bullets. Kinduv a handy trick, but also important to be careful with.”

“Change to wolf form,” Tricia repeated. “Are you telling me you’re werewolves? There are freakin’ werewolves in Toronto, really?”

Candice had a car parked across the street from Tricia’s building. It was so dark a brown as to be almost black, a four-seater with comfy seats and a flashy stereo. “Where are we headed?” Tricia asked as Candice pulled out onto the street.

“Downtown.  That’s part of the reason I came so early.”

“Okay, let’s talk,” Tricia said after a moment to confirm that Candice was indeed heading south towards the lakeshore. “You–you called what we do magic. Is that just a figure of speech, or–I don’t even know how to end that. What do you know about magic?”

Good morning! I’m sharing eight more sentences from my Nano project “Never Found.” It’s hard to believe that November is almost over, isn’t it? My main character, Tricia, is dealing with a mysterious blonde stranger in her apartment…

“And I guess I’m curious about what it’s like when other people use magic,” Candice said. “For me, when I use the voice, I have to concentrate when I’m speaking, really emote into it like I’m up on stage, you know? I could hardly do shit until after I took drama class, if you can believe it. And it helps if I’m touching the person, or just touched them a few seconds ago.”

Tricia stormed back into the bachelorette room, fully dressed, and grabbed the flattest pair of shoes she could find. “So is that why I agreed to go with you to see this Vinny guy? You used your own mojo on me, there outside my door?”

“Well, I pushed you a little, yeah.”

Good morning! I’m sharing eight more sentences from my Nano project “Never Found”, which I started last week. My main character, Tricia, has just woken up to find a stranger at her door…

“So how does your mojo work?” Candice asked as Tricia changed. “The thing where people forget you?”

“If you’re talking about the principles behind it, bugger if I know,” Tricia grumbled.

“No, I mean, what’s it like for you?”

“Why should I tell you?”

“Well, I’m mostly making conversation because Vinny told me to if you were out of sight for a little while, like if I had to let you go to the bathroom. It’s a constant reminder, right? That doesn’t let me forget you and what I’m doing here, even though I can’t see you.”

“So, what’s Vinny’s crime?”

The blonde girl giggled. “He tries a bit of everything, but mostly he’s a thief. Like you, I think.”

“Yeah.” Tricia didn’t like the fact that these people knew about her, and she didn’t know anything about them. It was a very unfamiliar feeling. “Listen, you never gave me a name.”

“I’m here to take you to see Vinny Gibson.”

“Whoever Vinny is, he can f@*k off until I’ve had my coffee.” Tricia started to close the door, but the other girl reached out to touch her hand.

“Sorry–you want to meet Vinny. He’s a clever and powerful man, and he’s got a job for you. The kind of job that could make you rich, or earn you things that money won’t buy. This is a great opportunity you don’t want to mess up.”

Tricia stood there, a little dazed, not sure what had just happened. “Um, okay. I–I should get dressed before we go, right?”

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Okay, time to change it up again! I’m sharing eight sentences from my Nano project “Never Found”, which I just started yesterday. Actually, as I type this skeleton post, it’s Monday, so I’m committing to write at least eight sentences on the first day of Nanowrimo. Shouldn’t be too hard…

Tricia was still in bed when she heard somebody knocking on the door. She rolled out, picked herself back up, went over, and pulled the door open. On the other side was a tall blonde girl in jeans and a black leather jacket. “Um, you’re not the coffee guy,” Tricia muttered, trying to make her nightie more substantial by pulling at it.

“No,” the blonde girl said, a smile quirking at the corner of her lips. “I’m not even the new coffee girl. You can tell that much, I suppose, by the fact that I’m not carrying any coffee.”

“Who are you and what the hell are you doing here so early?” Tricia asked.

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Still sharing snippets of the new stories I wrote this summer. This was also inspired by one of my A-Z challenge ideas: Neural Rewiring. Nathan is the leader of a stunt aerobatics flying team, and the team was practicing, but Nathan misjudged a landing.

“How many of you feel that way?” Nathan asked. “Let’s make it a proper vote.”

“Okay, all in favour of looking for a replacement for Nathan as soon as possible,” Seth said, and stuck his hand in the air. Pilar put her hand up right away, and so did Liz after a moment, as if she had to check to make sure that she wouldn’t be the one who cast the majority vote.

“All against?” Karen said. All seven of them either dropped or raised a hand. “Motion fails, by three to four. And since we’re doing team votes-all in favor of opening the position of flight leader?”

It took him half a minute to get the shudders under control before he climbed out of his bird.

They were all waiting for him when he got down to the tarmac. “We can’t go on like this, Nathan.” Karen said.

“You want to change the routine?” he offered weakly. His routines were the pride and joy of his life, but even that would be easier than…”

“Hell no,” Seth muttered darkly. “The routine’s amazing, buddy. We just need to find another pilot who can fly them.”

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

Okay, I’m going to switch to another of the new stories I wrote this summer. This was also inspired by one of my A-Z challenge ideas: Neural Rewiring. Nathan is the leader of a stunt aerobatics flying team, and the team is practicing.

Liz’s plane roared and seemed to jerk upward, maintaining altitude and putting on speed as it roared above the runway.

Nathan watched as she looped around to the end of the line and landed after Seth, not really as close as the others had been but if there had been an audience, they might not have noticed the difference. “Liz, as thrilling as that variation is, I’m not sure it’ll be a crowd-pleaser.”

“You were the one crowding her, Nathan!” Karen shot back. She’d been in the plane in front of Nathan for the landing, so she would know. Nathan’s stomach sank a little. If he’d been too far back from Karen’s plane, Liz wouldn’t have been able to come in for a safe landing without passing the danger on to Niko, and so on. It had been a split-second emergency, she’d made the right call, and Nathan hadn’t even noticed.
