Flash Fiction: Dim

Flash Fiction: Dim

The mortal loved the ocean. Each time that she dived beneath the waves, she embraced the waters of the mother with a smile. Her dark hair and white dress swirled around as she swam above in the sun dappled sea.
Hidden in the dim depths, Moria swam behind the mortal. She gripped the coral handle of her trident tighter. This dark task weighed heavier than the shield on her back. Aye, she had sworn her loyalty to the father but the son tested that bond with yet another twisted command. Kidnap the pearl diver in white.
Duty kept Moria tracking the mortal woman as she surfaced and descended again. Honor forced her to sheath her trident.

April Writing Playlist

Why a writing playlist?

 I like to create a musical atmosphere when I write. Music can really inspire me and keep my fingers typing on the keyboard when I am ready to give up. I generally choose music that fits with the mood of the story that I am working on.

Sometimes, I do deviate especially when I am revising and editing. When I am gutting a first draft, I like music that gets my toes tapping and my heart pumping. It pushes me to cut through the dross and get to the diamonds.

Enjoy this taste of what I am listening to this month.
