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.
The Landrus trial continues, though it’s getting close to a verdict. I might have to spend a few weeks in Braeden’s pov to wrap it up without engaging in half-page explanations prior to the eight sentences. Braeden observes Kendryk’s testimony and notices that Teodora is increasingly distracted.
Even Flavia Maxima’s hatchet face softened visibly when young, earnest Prince Kendryk testified. He spoke of Father Landrus’s good character and his loyalty to both faith and temple. Already popular, Kendryk made a good impression on the audience, and judging by the many big words he used, seemed to have a firm grasp of theology.
To Braeden’s surprise, Teodora wasn’t upset by the sight of Kendryk or the friendly reception he received. She no longer seemed to care about the trial’s outcome and it was clear she wanted it to end quickly. Atlona was now directly threatened by the army of Andor Korma. According to the latest message from the capital, he had crossed the Olvisyan border and no one stood in his way.
Braeden has already gently suggested leaving the trial and going back in hopes of stopping Korma, but I thought I’d spare you the empress-tantrum that provoked. I can’t give away ALL of the tantrums before the book comes out. 🙂by
