This 8-sentence snippet is another from my published short story entitled Rapunzel. If you’re interested in reading the whole thing, you can find it in DM du Jour, a blog associated with the online magazine Danse Macabre.
If you’re interested in posting a snippet of your own story yourself or want to read things that other people have written, mosey on over to Weekend Writing Warriors. Every week they have a new sign-up sheet for people interested in showing their work to the world.
– 8-sentence snippet of Rapunzel –
“My lady, I am Prince Rollin, defender of maidenly virtue and destroyer of witches.” He stared in rapture at her beauty. She kept her head tilted from him so he could only glimpse the side of her face which was partially shielded by her hair. “We will leave this accursed tower and you shall be my wife. You will never want for anything, my love, for you have but to ask and it will be yours.”
“You pledge your love to me?” she asked, her speaking voice as stunning to hear as her singing. His vow was enthusiastic. “You pledge your life to me and my happiness?”
– End Snippet –
I wanted to do 3 snippets but since this short story is only 3 pages long, I’m sticking with 2 snippets. I mean, why bother getting anything published if I put the majority of it here?
If the last 8-sentence snippet wasn’t enticing enough, then hopefully this caught your interest. The link to the published full work at DM du Jour is given above in the beginning of this post.
