It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors! Every Sunday, a bunch of writers post 8-10-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.
I can’t believe it’s my 50th post! I’ve rarely missed a Sunday since I joined this group nearly a year ago. I’m addicted, apparently.
So, I’ll do one more snippet from Valley of the Shadow. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find even a few sentences that aren’t total spoilers for Rise of the Storm. Although if you’re one of the fortunate few who’s read to the end of it, this little bit might give you hope. *evil cackle*
This is very near the beginning of Valley of the Shadow, which I’ve just realized needs another 20k words or so added to it so it makes sense. It’s going to be a very long book. Kendryk wakes up in considerable pain, unsure of where he is and what exactly happened in the recent past. Someone hovering over him introduces herself as Kamyla, a doctor. Kendryk doesn’t recognize her and asks if she works for him.
“I do not; I’m very sorry.”
He didn’t know why she would be. He tried to be a good employer, but if someone didn’t want to work for him, he wouldn’t hold it against them.
“It’s all right,” he said, attempting a smile. “Who do you work for then?”
“Oh dear; you don’t remember what happened, do you?”
Kendryk carefully shook his head. It felt like rocks were rolling around where his brain should be.
“Hmm,” she said. “I don’t wish to upset you because it might kill you.”
Previous snippets are here.
If you’re dying to know what’s going on with Kendryk, you need to read Rise of the Storm now. Or if you’re the patient sort, I reckon I can get to the end of it in snippets in another 50 posts or so. In any event, I’ll get back to it next week, I promise!by
