The Call to Adventure


The Carrot Ranch Literary Community November 16, 2017, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) use the word mesh in a story. Mesh is both an object and a verb, which you can freely explore. You can play with its sound, too. Go where the prompt leads.

Respond by November 21, 2017, to be included in the compilation (published November 22). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!

Here’s another sneak peek at my new novel, The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Meadow Fairy:

Abby sat up in bed. There it was again. A strange buzzing sound echoed through the room. The ability to understand the languages of all creatures had also given her excellent hearing. She could hear a pin drop a mile away. Today, this sound shouted for her attention.

Abby shivered. The sound continued. Curious, she crept toward the window. Drawing the blinds, she gasped in surprise. It was a bee, crawling on the mesh screen stuck between the glass window.

“Save us,” it hummed.

That would prove to be a tall order for a girl with a bee allergy.

I’m forging ahead on my NaNoWritMo novel writing. I’ve slowed down, but I’m still moving forward. I have 32,072 words total. That means only 17,928 to go to reach 50,000!

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

  1. The hero hear’s her call! I think I’d be reluctant, too! Great use of your work in a flash I hope it serves you well. And feel better, soon!


    1. As I’m writing this first draft I’m itching to start editing. I have to keep telling myself that I just need to pour the plot out and then I can go back and start the real writing. Thanks for your encouragement, Charli. ❤
