Moonshade - A 50 Word Short from The Shard of Myrsi

3년 전

This week's prompt in @jayna's Fifty Word Challenge was "shade", so I decided to write something that may or may not end up in my fantasy novel, The Shard of Myrsi. Enjoy!

Pain rippled through the gash on Sina’s back then eased. “Isn’t moonshade poisonous?”

The healer nodded. “But the blossom, used properly, has powerful healing properties.”

Her people needed this knowledge. If she could make it back safely.

She had to try. Their lives were more important. “Can you teach me?”

Great. So promising. Best of luck in the challenge.

Very good... Well worth including in your fantasy novel..

Great way to give a character agency, and such a powerful piece in so short a story. Wonderful, Rose!

Nicely written.It certainly feels like part of a greater whole. Good luck with your novel.

This is so enticing, @therosepatch. Both Sina and the heeler are intriguing characters. I love how you've captured them in a 50-word story that could stand alone or become incorporated into your novel.
