Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday (PA)(RO)

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors. Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished. Today it's a bit from Enchanted Skye ~ a scorching contemporary tale.

First my 8, followed by details~
From the outside, the hidden entrance to the sea lay mostly submerged between three jutting crags. Buffeted by intermittent cascades of seawater and back-lit by the light of day, the cave took on
an eerie blue-green glow.  

Alex dashed though the passage stripping from his clothes on the run, his waterskin tucked tight under his arm. When hentered the rocky cavern, he was naked and breathless. Flinging the smooth skin over his shoulders, he hunkered down. The transformation was instantaneous. Dynamically streamlined flippers appeared where arms and legs had been a moment before. He flexed his muscles and arched his back, then turned his head from side to side to fit more comfortably within his second skin.

What just happened~
At this point in the story Alex has no idea he's under the effects of a charm. All he knows there's a chance to see Jenna. Taking his Selkie skin with him, he takes a shortcut.

What this story is about~
This tale was inspired by two interesting tidbits ~ an old maritime legend of tears and sea water, and the actual genealogy belonging to one Scottish family living today. They say as far back as the family legends go, they are Selkie. Why not?

“Ms. Anderson gives us another blending of ancient legends and modern life. In my opinion this is an outstanding story with the wonderful, surprise ending I’ve come to expect from this author. If you like reading smart and sexy romance novels, look no further. My only complaint would be Ms. Anderson needs to write faster!!!”

  2. Nice description of his change. even with the brevity, it was handled perfectly! Good 8, Rose. ;-)

  3. Ooh, I LIKE it. One of the best selkie change scenes I've ever read. Terrific snippet!

  4. It's easy to visualize what you've written. Excellent descriptions.
