In Dreams of Trees : Till Morning

Wordcount: 79
Rating/Warnings: PG
Summary: Wordwar; Random person makes a trip out for supplies… for no apparent purpose. Might be expanded later, or might end up as a DVD extra adventure. Hrm.

NOTE: This is a very rough draft with no editing at all (per National Novel Wiriting Month rules) and is presented for amusement value only. Think of it as a periscope into my writing process rather than a coherent story!

There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing. These snippits are also posted out of order, so please refer to the Outline to figure out where it’s supposed to fit.

Till Morning

She waits until the sun rises on the other side of the door before she steps out. She’s been on enough missions to know that entering at night is just as good as offering yourself up on a platter to the local predators.

Or the local humans.

So she waits until she can see and then she heads out, backpack full of trade goods and a smile on her face.

It never hurts to make a good first impression.
