Story Chain...The Rocky Tale of Dio Franklain

The delightful Deana Burnhart is hosting “Gearing Up to Get an Agent Blog-o-Rama” this month. Week 2—a story chain:) How fun!

I’m almost at the end so if you want to read from the beginning check out Nata’s blog and follow along. The charming Robin Weeks posted right before me.

My assignment: Continue the climax from the above post using the words: Velcro, pastel, jumble. So without further ado…


The green dust caught in the breeze from the open window and swirled round and round—like a jumbled whirlpool.

Incorporeal at first but then one by one concrete wishes formed. Ice cream cones. Bicycles. Bags of gummy worms. Clothes. Phones. Computers.

And Dio’s father.

“Dad?” she whispered. Dio was so shocked her hands fell useless to her sides—like gunk filled Velcro.

“Dio?” He looked around squinting his eyes. “How did I get here?”

"Dad, where have you been?" She ran to him.

“I don’t know. It feels like a dream—like another time or dimension.”

A crash on the lawn interrupted the reunion. Roddern parted the curtain and a pastel dawn peaked through.

“It’s too late,” Roddern ran a hand through his hair. “They’re here.”


Want the next installment? Check out the lovely Melodie Wright’s blog. Happy Reading:)

Oh my word, I love this. I love that each piece of the stone became one of her former wishes. So great! Thanks Angie! Job well done!

I agree with KP. I love the wishes coming back to her and the cliffhanger!

Yay! Dad's back!

The family reunited. And yes, a bag of gummy worms is on my wish list, too. Great job!

Can't stop smiling. Seriously. The wishes becoming corporeal??? Wonderful touch.

Oooohh Nice expansion of previous ideas! The gunk-filled velcro was fun wording -- and the cliffhanger was simply inspired :)

I agree with Amber on every point! Especially "gunk-filled velcro"-very nice word usage!
