WELCOME to the second link-up of Snazzy Snippets, hosted by yours truly and the wonderful Alyssa from The Devil Orders Takeout.

You can see the last lot of Snazzy Snippets here.

So if you click on the drop-down box, you can see what it’s all about!


What is Snazzy Snippets for?

It’s an opportunity for writers! Every two months, we post a prompt or question for you to share a snippet of less than 500 words. It’s designed to let you have fun, analyse your work on a smaller level, or just write something to join in. If you’re not a writer, or aren’t working on anything, don’t go back up the rabbit hole just yet. Read everyone’s wonderful snippets on the linky!

Who are you guys, anyway?

Me (Emily): I’m an Australian blogger and writer. I mainly write contemporary YA fiction. Since I’m always sharing snippets of my writing on Twitter and my blog, I wanted to give others a chance to!

Alyssa: I’m a Hong Kong blogger and YA writer. I write diverse and empowered girls in worlds of magic, madness and murder. I post monthly #WatchMeWrite videos on my blog, and I love to read other online writers’ works. So here we are!

Who can participate and what can I post?

Post anything, so long as it pertains to the prompt/question and is under 500 words! (We won’t kill you if it’s a bit over, of course, but we may frown.) It can be something you wrote at 3 AM the night before or a passage you’ve been slaving over for months. And of course, it has to be your own writing. Plagiarism isn’t snazzy.

I have the BEST idea for a snippet prompt/question.

Wonderful! Tweet or email Emily (@theloonytuney, emily.mead3[at] or Alyssa (@AlyssaC_HK, alyssa.carlier[at], and we’ll do our best to include your idea in a future Snazzy Snippets post!


And here are this week’s prompts:

[alert] 1. A snippet with FOOD in it. [/alert]

[alert] 2. A snippet you’re really proud of. [/alert]

[alert] 3. The first paragraph from a WIP. [/alert]

And without further ado, here are my snippets. Number ONE was a snippet with food in it.

This one’s from Wanderland, my Alice in Wonderland retelling. This snippet is from chapter two, where they’ve fallen down the rabbit snippet

2. A snippet you’re proud of.

This one’s from the same chapter, actually. Considering I’m not great a description, I really like how this turned out.

Snippet 3 – the first paragraph of a WIP.

As you can probably tell, this is the BEGINNING of Wanderland. It’s more than a paragraph, but…whatever. Deal with it.

So those are my snippets! And remember you can link up below:

OH, and do you have any suggestions for snippets we could include next time? Will you be linking up??
