Hello Rainbow Snippeters! 😁
In case you’re not familiar with #RainbowSnippets, check out their Facebook Group where you’ll find a new post each Saturday (or early Friday, depending on your time zone). That weekly pinned post will collect comments from authors linking to their 6-ish-line Rainbow Snippet post for the week.
The first two snippets are the opening lines from my novelette WiP, Luck of the Draw (M/M Light Fantasy). Click on the spoiler tags if you’d like a quick refresher:

This week’s snippet skips ahead just a tiny bit from the previous snippets…
Since I’m always looking for something to distract me from actually…you know…writing, here are a couple of images I’ve come up with to go with my snippets that may or may not have anything to do with the eventual cover. I keep going back and forth on my preference, and I’m currently leaning toward the cartoon guys again.
And I further wouldn’t want to distract myself with anything actually productive, like writing a real blurb, so here are a haiku and a not-quite-legit-limerick:
Obren had to draw
A straw to decide his fate.
He drew the short one.
LIMERICK (with some rhyming fail…it’s still a work-in-progress)
There once was a prince from Canna
Draw a straw? He just didn’t wanna!
But choose one he must,
and now he must trust,
the Butari prince won’t hold a … grudge.
