He stood staring up the path

Unable to move

Frozen

Because he knew

Under the canopy of trees

Darkness fell early

And it waited around the bend

Always

Just

Around

That

Bend

Lucky Seven!

A friend and fellow writer, Danita Cahill has tagged me in the Lucky Seven.

The challenge: Post seven lines from an unpublished work of fiction.

The Golden Rules:

Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Post on your blog or Facebook page the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors to do the same.

Here’s the lines from my Urban Fantasy WIP

Tonight her mom drove into the darkness, down to the local tavern. “Stay here Jess.” She said, getting out, going inside. A few moments later, the van’s back doors opened. Her father hung limp, carried between two men. They heaved him up onto the mattress, before slamming the doors closed again. Her mom got in the front and started the engine to drive back home.

Here are my nominee’s:

M. Pax

Marie Harte

Rich at BrainSnorts

Wow! This past week has been crazy. For the first time I couldn’t do Friday Fictioneers. 😦

And then there’s all those wonderful people out there nominating me for awards…a huge very tardy thank you to all. Here’s all my late acknowledgements.

Thank you Stacey over at Plowright for The Commentator Award

I know reading comments others, like yourself, leave on my blog is what makes my day. I’m glad to return the favor. And Stacey my dear, you deserve every positive comment I send your way.

Thank you Jeff Whelan for the Lovely Blog Award

Thanks Jeff! One can never have too many awards, and every gal wants to hear the word ‘lovely’ applied to something they do. Thanks for thinking my blog is lovely.

Kate Policani for the Sunshine Award

Any award comparing my blog to sunshine is greatly appreciated. Sometimes I don’t feel very sunny and my writing swings towards the dark naturally, so for me to be nominated for this award is truly something. Thank you Kate!

Okay, so here are some things about me:

  1. My name is not Tes. It’s something much older and stranger.
  2. I love trying new things. Change is exciting, embrace it.
  3. I have two Weimaraners
  4. Sometimes I get in my car and have this urge to just drive, head off in a random direction and never come back. No my life doesn’t suck that bad, but wow…the freedom. Until of course you couldn’t pay for gas, food, hotel… Yeah, that’s why I don’t do it.
  5. I am a nerd. I love RPG’s. Yes I am a woman over the age of thirty…

Okay, considering that my life right now is one big time suck and I really, really do need to actually write to make money, I’m going to nominate just one blog for each award.

The Others1 for The Commentator Award. No one is more consistent on leaving comments on my blog! I love to see those flip-flops in my comments section. Thanks.

Mike over at MyShorts for the Lovely Blog award. His shorts may be…well, um…short, but man are they good!

Melania over at NWFantasyWriter gets the Sunshine Award, because a more sunny person I’ve never met.

Here’s the photo prompt for Friday Fictioneers courtesy of Madison Woods. Thanks Madison, for starting and continuing this wonderful writing prompt. Please visit her site and check out all the other Friday Fictioneers. This one gave me fits, but here’s what I finally came up with:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Out of breath, he reached the summit. The trek had taken him over desolate rock fields with no visible life.

“Snow, at least I’ll have fresh water.”

Turning in a circle, he spied his surroundings, an island. Unfortunately, the other side showed more of the same.

No vegetation. No food. Perhaps the tide pools would contain some edible life forms? Although, without access to fire, he’d be doing sushi.

Curse his luck. First his ship malfunctions, next his life pod crashes in the ocean, now land with no food. Could it get any worse?

The ground shakes, the smell of sulfur stings his nose. “Well hell.”
