Weekend Writing Warriors – Restoration #26

Welcome to another snippet.

Over the next few months I plan bringing you the remainder of the short story, 8 – 10 sentences at a time.

This link will take you to the Weekend Writing Warriors home page where you can check out snippets from other writers.


WeWriWa Paper Grunge

Demeas gets closer to finding what he’s been looking for.


The tracks crossed numerous roadways before heading into the nearby woods. It was obvious the man he pursued was not making it easy to be found. The weather through the rest of the day worsened. Snow fell heavier and winds caused drifts which threatened to cover the tracks. Demeas rode harder for fear of losing the trail as the tracks, in some places, were now covered by snow and wind driven drifts. The tracks had disappeared and Demeas was forced to rely on his instincts as a tracker. He had trusted them for years and they had failed him on rare occasions. After searching in every direction, he closed his eyes.

Which way would I go?


Join me next week for another snippet.

  1. I like the idea of Demeas asking himself what he would do. Another great snippet!

  2. Peter Vialls says:

    Good technique – think yourself into the mind of your quarry. This is a good snippet.

  3. Nice tension. He’s skilled, but this particular quarry is proving trickier than normal. Can’t wait to see how this plays out.

  4. Ed Hoornaert says:

    Tracking through drifting snow could be nearly impossible. I trust his instincts too, though.

  5. The odds don’t seem to be stacking in his favour. How’s he going to get past the snow? Can’t wait to find out!
