Weekend Writing Warriors + Snippet Sunday 30 August 2020: Ketil and Yitzy

The Notes
I'm sorry to be so all over the place with my shares. I've decided to stick with Ketil and Yitzy's Adventure in the Xura Dream House for the foreseeable future.

In the previous installment, the human spirit Ketil Nagel and his Yithian companion have arrived at the storied House of Lost Dreams in Xura. Unknown to them, they are being spied on by a pair of Cockney ghouls who came from London to visit the Xura carnival. You can read the previous installment by following this link. 

The Snippet
“Nor I, but I’m curious. Who do you suppose that is with him? Have you ever seen the like?”

“Ain’t that one of them things from beyond the stars? What do you reckon they’re up to?”

“I don’t know, but I’ve long heard whispers about both Ketil Nagel and this house. Are you up for an adventure, Johnny?”

“I was happy just eatin’ this tasty hunk of pie, if you must know. But I reckon it couldn’t hurt to ask ‘em what they’re doing here.”

The laid-back ghoul followed his excitable compadre to introduce themselves to the rangy phantom and impressive extraterrestrial who stood before the storied Dream House.

  1. I liked the laid-back ghoul's reply. Nice snippet.

    1. I like Little John too. I think he'd be fun to hang out with. Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  2. Now I'm craving pie! And interesting cast of characters!

  3. Writing your ghoul against ghoulish stereotypes works very well. He sounds too nice to haunt anybody, or whatever nasty stuff ghouls like to do.

  4. I love these guys . . . or should I say ghouls.

  5. I love these two Cockney ghouls. They are so much fun. I can imagine them perfectly!

  6. Well, I'm curious too, like your character! Enjoyed the snippet...

  7. I'm a scaredy-cat. lol I think I'd be happy just sitting there eating a piece of pie, too! :-)But hey, adventure awaits...

  8. I like how that pie is almost more important than an adventure.

  9. These ghouls are so much fun! More interested in food than what they came there to do. Great characters!


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
