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?”

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 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.”

“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?”

Weekend Writing Warriors – Never Found 1

November 2, 2014

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.

What’s Up Wednesday? The creative doldrums…

September 3, 2014

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us! And if you’re looking for Insecure Writer’s Support Group, I’ll probably be posting tomorrow.

TreeWhat I’m reading:

Well, I got a lot of reading done this week, especially when I was waiting in lines at Fan Expo. Finished “Lords and Ladies”, the novelization of “Spider-man 3”, and “Command Decision.” Read about five graphic novels, including two Doctor Who comics, and the first three volumes of the hilariously weird “Chew.” Reached the halfway point on “Annals of the Heechee”, started Elizabeth Moon’s “Victory Conditions”, and listened to some more Escape Artists.

What I’m writing:

Not that much just at this moment. Started fleshing out an urban fantasy idea that I may be saving up for Nanowrimo this year. I actually got the idea from the character prompts in a Dresden Files RPG session I played at Fan Expo, a girl with stealth magic who was ‘lost and never found.’

What inspires me right now:

Weird comic books, all the geeky energy I got from the crowds at Fan Expo, new Doctor Who episodes with Peter Capaldi, and Harry Potter movies.

What else I’ve been up to:

Went shopping for iPads with my Mom tonight, though she couldn’t find the model and color she wanted. Getting ready for a jam-packed weekend; trivia night in Dundas on Friday, then the BrightRun fundraiser for breast cancer on Saturday, and an epic write-in Sunday afternoon!
