It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-sentence snippets from their WIPs on their blogs. There’s a lot of reading, commenting and great writing. Click on the link to see the full list.
Recently, Janna learned that she and Anton are on a list of the Empress’s most-wanted rebels. Since it’s not safe to go back to Janna’s family, and Janna’s a terrible tavern wench, Maya has arranged for them to live with Maya’s sister Zara in another town. Back on the road, Janna explains to Anton why they’re in trouble.
“That Empress is a bad person,” Anton said. “Why does she want to capture us when we haven’t done anything wrong?”
“She’s worried that when you grow up, you’ll still be angry with her and start trouble.”
“She’s right about that,” Anton said, arranging his face into a grimace.
Janna hid a smile and asked, “So what would you do if you were the Emperor?”
“I would give Moralta independence, first thing.”
“They would stop paying taxes to you, you know.”
“I’d have palaces full of gold, so I wouldn’t need any stupid taxes.”
Anton for Emperor!
