Snippet Sunday #2

It’s Snippet Sunday time!!! I haven’t done a Snippet Sunday post in a while, so this is long overdue… 

 

How To Participate In Snippet Sunday: 

  • Share a snippet of your current writing project. It can be a sentence, a paragraph, a bit of dialogue, a poem, a chapter… You get the picture!… 
  • Link your post back to Samantha’s blog, where Snippet Sunday first began! 
  • Drop a link to your post in the comments so I can see it!
  • Have fun, be bookish, and stay writerly! 

 

For a bit of context, this snippet comes from my current project, which is a fantasy novel by the working title of Wishes. It started when I was given a positively hideous assignment for the poetry unit in my English class last year. The reason I passed that assignment was because I ended up writing all the poems as though they pertained to my story to make it slightly less tortuous, and this anagram is one of them that I ended up keeping. It sets up the theme of my story SO well, and I think I’ll probably put it at the front of the book kind of like a mini prologue. 

 

Perfection Flawed 

 

It’s best to keep a common truth, 

Lest a darkened storm should brew. 

For if a lie is seen outside, 

Then flawed perfection hides inside!

The Snippet 

I wish I could be like them: blind and deaf to everything that no one should ever have to see or hear.
