Of Hotheads and Rotted Potatoes: Weekend Writing Warriors 27 September 2020

The Blurb
The fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.

The Snippet

“In you go, you lot,” Robin cackled. “I dare you!”

“There is no need for dares, you rotted potato!” Ketil grumbled. “We was, in any case, going to enter this place not well to enter even before you came along.”

“There is no need to refer to me as a rotted potato, you hothead!” Robin shot back. “Take meself to Sweden and gnaw on your tough old jerky of a carcass, I ought. Just for spite, I might.”

“It matters nothing to me as I am not using it,” Ketil returned.

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.
