Home of a mother, wife, writer

Welcome to another installment of Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop for everyone who likes to write. Today I’m sharing a final snippet from Into the Sun. This week’s 9 sentences picks up right where last week’s left off.

   ”I’ll take her up to her room. If that’s all right,” I added, glancing quickly at Bull then back to Icarus.
Finally, Icarus nodded. “Yes, I think that would be best. You can get settled in, Cassie. We’ll figure everything else out after that.”
“You’ve changed,” she said.
His gaze went to her again. “So did you,” was all he said.

Into the Sun will be available to read in full on Tuesday along with the rest of the World Unknown Review(including one by our own Shan Jeniah). Next week I’ll have the first snippet from the sequel, Come Back Down, which starts a few weeks after this one ends and is from Birdie’s POV.

Comments on: "WeWriWa: “You’ve Changed”" (17)

  1. I like the ambivalence of Icarus’s response. I get the feeling that the change was before and not after their reuinon.

    • Thanks. And, yes, they both changed before their reunion. It has been about 19 years, so it would be unlikely they hadn’t changed at all in that time.

  2. Loved the snippet. Nicely done. As a moderator, can I ask you to fix your link to Wewriwa? It has an error, and doesn’t link back. Thank you!

  3. I’m coming in with no prior knowledge of either the characters or the situation, but it does feel as though the changes they see in each other are not necessarily for the better. Maybe I’m reading in tone that’s not there, but that’s what I hear just from the page. And it still makes me want to know more, so good job!

  4. Great snippet. It’s short but packs a big punch. I am certainly intrigued to read more of this story. I get the impression the characters have a complicated relationship.

  5. Change happens and I like when characters in a story acknowledge that. Very realistic, great snippet!

  6. This change is clearly important…but then, that’s what stories are all about.

  7. You left us hanging on an edge, Fallon. I’m intrigued–wondering what the changes are and whether they’re good ones or bad ones. Nice job. 🙂

  8. It always intrigues me how surprised some people seem to be when they reunite with someone after an extended period of time. For some reason they expect you to be exactly the same person, laughing at the same jokes, caring about the same causes, etc.. But the truth is we are all changing, every day, and sometimes you don’t notice it until the work’s all done. I dunno. Just me rambling today, I suppose. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
