Weekend Writing Warriors!

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop! Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished.

Today I'm offering another small sampling from The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo (book 1) A tale inspired by a local urban legend and dressed up with ancient lore.

First my 8, then details after:

He shifted into a feathered snake before taking the form of a mouse and working his way out of a sleeve. The movement caught the attention of an owl on its nightly hunting foray. Just as it was about to swoop low on silent wings, intent on nabbing the large field mouse, a naked man with a mouse tail and whiskers appeared. The owl, clearly startled, flew off into the night. 
Laughing, Ash raised his arms and yelled after it, “This is not your night, my brotherrrr!”

Tail and whiskers absorbed into his changing form and once again bare skin grew feathers. He shifted into a raven — a six-foot-tall raven. Laughing at himself, he made his body small and flew fast to Livie’s home, albeit not in a straight line.

What just happened:
Ash,the 3000-year old Native American Shaman discovers beer. It's obviously a potent shaman's drink if it's capable of making one mindless.Here Ash is trying to make it back to Livie's house before she does. She has no idea he's actually the stray dog she hit with her car and is now caring for in her home.

  1. Rose, you've done it again. I'm enchanted by your wizardry with words. And funny. Thanks for the enterainment and another glimpse into your story.

    1. Thanks Charmaine! Ash's entrance into the modern world has some sweet and funny moments. The hot dog scene, another funny bit, is based on a conversation had with my Anishinabe house guest regarding a dog feast his friend attended on the reservation. Many of the details of this story come from my life experiences.

  2. What a unique story idea. I'm going to have to follow this one. Being a historian, I can't resist a story based on folklore.
    History Sleuth - Milk Carton Murders

    1. The truth is stranger than fiction, Cindy. The roots of this story involve sightings of a wolf walking like a man. The eyewitnesses weren't the sort you'd doubt. That's what caught my eye. What else could it be than a shape-shifting shaman? I'm glad you enjoyed this bit. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. SO cool. Loved the image of the man with a mouse tail and whiskers. Unexpected! This is a great story and today's excerpt leaves me wanting more for sure.
