Creativity is a terrible thing to waste.
Although creative writing is important to all who seek this blog, I would also like to share with you other creative outlets such as art, design, and music. Without them, there would be no inspiration for our writing.
With the crack of a whip, the bright-eyed dogs line up. A young female voice calls out, “Mush!” and the team race off into the snow covered terrain.
A glint of silver flashes, catching Victoria’s eye. She steers her team of a dozen plus one toward another streak light.
As they approach, a boy waves his hand through the frosted air.
She pulls up beside him, jumps off the sled, and rushes to him. “Are you alright? What happened to you?”
He grinned at her and swallowed hard. “I lost my footing and kind of bounced down the hill. I think my ankle may be broken.”
Victoria smiles. “No worries. I’ll get you out of here.” She drags him onto the sled an straps him in with rope. As she finished tying the knot, the memory of her father plays through her mind. She still remembers his words echoing through her soul. “Always be prepared for an emergency.” Her heart grows heavy for a split second, remembering the last time she saw her dad alive.
A year…it’s only been a year?
She shakes her head and jumps on the sled next to her injured new friend. An arctic wind kicks up the fresh powder and clings to her eyelashes and hair, veiling her head with a shimmering, opalescent glow.
Once more, “Mush!” rings from her lips and off they go…
As they continue the snow fall increases at an alarming rate.
Visibility is nonexistent.
With no shelter in sight, what will become of them?
As these two young teens battle for survival, will Victoria’s training be enough to fight the elements in this barren wilderness?
Whoa…now this sounds like an exciting tale…no, not the wagging kind…lol. I really love the premise of a young female teen hero. This is a fantastic book for every young teenage girl. Role models are so important and to find one with so much heart and excitement is a real gem.
Thanks Terry Lynn! And all the best with your exciting new book!
We are certainly winding up this week with some adventurous stories. Again I must stress, NOT TO BLAME ME for your full TBR lists. Please blame the authors!
As a final note, I just wanted to say I just got back in town and hope to catch up with everyone and I hope you understand my absence this past week.
