Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors. Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished. Today I'm offering a small sampling from The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo (book 1 in the ongoing series).
First my 8, then details after:

The large Great Horned owl landed on the uppermost tree limb, his weight bending the branch as he struggled to perch with a stone knife and leather sheaf clutched in his talons. This was the best he had to offer of the few things he’d made. He’d seen the daily changes of clothing those around him wore and he couldn’t imagine what they traded for such largess. 

Silently swooping, Ash landed on the ground just below the strings of clothing and used his night vision to choose the blue garment he'd seen earlier. Spreading his large wings, he flew to the railing and set the offering there. A moment later, he flew off into the twilight clutching a bunched-up denim shirt.

At the house next door, a woman standing at her kitchen window called to her husband watching TV in the next room. “Jim, you’re not going to believe what I just saw!”


What does an immortal Native American shaman do when the grave he’s sworn to watch over for all eternity disappears under urban development?
His purpose of guarding his wife’s burial mound is gone, Ashkewheteasu seeks to end his immortal existence. In his despair, Ash assumes the form of a wolf and steps in front of a moving car and into the life of Dr. Olivia “Livie” Rosalini. The veterinarian saves the animal’s life, and in the process saves the man within. Livie has no idea the wolfish dog she’s taken into her home and grows to love is a magical being seeking to win her heart as a man.

While Ash is learning a new world filled with new love, friendship, and happiness, an old menace makes plans to steal it all away; just as he had 3000 years before.

Behind the scenes for the snippet above: To be a man of Livie's world, Ash needs modern clothing. Coming from a culture of trade, he finds what he needs on a backyard clothesline.
