What do you think of when you look at a picture? Have you ever thought about of putting those thoughts down on paper and maybe taking it one step further? Well, you're in luck because it's Book Blurb Friday once again!
Lisa Ricard Claro, from Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover. It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader. Are you up to the challenge?
For some reason my thoughts went to magic and curses when I looked at this week's photo, so instead of fighting it I went for it. Here is this week's photo and my blurb:
Land by Day, Water by Night
Laura dove into the magic waters and all at once she could feel her legs withering away and her tail taking their place. With her fingers now webbed she propelled herself forward, gliding effortlessly among the reeds, loving how the coolness pulsated through her as she swam.
Every seven days Laura must enter the water at midnight and swim until dawn-the morning sun would break the curse and she would return back to her human form, that is until another seven days passed, and then the cycle would repeat all over again. She had gambled with a sorcerer to save the life of her sister, and now she was paying the price.
Laura didn't think she could ever be free. If anyone knew her plight, or saw her during her nightly swim, the curse would engulf her, making her a permanent resident at the bottom of the lake. (149 words, phew!)
Well, I need to do some work for tomorrow so I better stop stalling. Can't wait to see what everyone else wrote!
