The Message: Shadowed Light

Once again, I was part of a cool writing experiment. While we were at our conference, my writing group took part in Inanna’s Circle Game.

We were given several characters, prompts, and settings to try and work into a story. I made it to seven options.

My story is called The Message. This is the start of a cool new steampunk series that goes in a direction that you wouldn’t expect.

Brace yourself for some steampunk, shifters, treasure hunting, and a hot new locale!

Harun was frantic. There was nowhere to hide in an open-air market. Nowhere but the airship. The ship’s guards were busy chasing off troublesome children and didn’t see Harun slip past. He hurried to the passenger compartment of the ship. Looking back, he saw the giant horse trying to force its way on to the airship. The guards returned and forced the creature back.

During the struggle, Harun noticed a glint of metal on the beasts face. Squinting his eyes, he saw that there were gears attached to the horse’s head connecting to some metal device. This discovery confused Harun. Was the animal half machine? Or, was it under someone else’s control?

I have a lot of new things in the work for 2018, I figured ending this year strong would be a good move. Read The Message in Shadowed Light today!
