Home of a mother, wife, writer

Welcome to the last pre-Christmas installment of Weekend Writing Warriors. Not sure if I’ll make it for next week’s or not, as we’ll be gone most of Saturday. I may just get it written later than usual(since today’s is getting drafted at 8:20 Saturday morning). Anyway, today I’m sharing the first snippet from Come Back Down, which picks up about 3 weeks after Into the Sun finishes and is from Birdie’s POV. Here’s the first 10 sentences.

   I walked down the street, lifting my hand in greeting to the people who waved to me. There were a lot more on both sides of the street, and right in the middle even, than I was used to seeing. No one out here called me Birdie, which probably felt odder for me than it should.
Sometimes I forgot it wasn’t the name I was born with. It had become so much a part of who I was.
I got past the food carts and saw tables and tents set up with various crafts people were selling. It hadn’t been like this at first. Chief and Icarus had set this up as a way to give back to the community that took us in and watched out for us. Now, it had transformed into something else.
I wasn’t so sure I liked it.

Where is she headed? What is going on? And what is her real name? Stick around, and you should find out. 🙂

And you can always pick up World Unknown Review and read all of Into the Sun if you’d like.

  1. I think starting at the beginning will help me to understand what’s going on in this story. I was never quite sure if Birdie was actually a bird.

  2. So much going on here! Very intriguing questions raised that beg for answers. Nicely done Fallon.

  3. I like it. How have I missed the snippets from WUR? I just bought it on Amazon. Stocking up on vacation reading material. 🙂

    Have a merry Christmas, Fallon. 🙂

  4. Interesting snippet. There are so many things I am eager to learn about this character starting with the nickname and ending with why she doesn’t like the way things evolved. Look forward to reading more.

  5. I’m fascinated by the way this block party? street fair? started out and now it’s morphed into something Birdie’s not sure she likes. A very intriguing detail!

  6. I was actually wondering the other day what Birdie’s real name was. I’m eager to larn more about all this – and why she’s alone. Where’s Trace?

  7. […] but I’ll try to minimize them. Today I have 9 sentences. I’ve skipped a little since last week’s, mostly some of Birdie’s thoughts and a few of those spoilers. The first line of dialogue is […]
