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 realize we’ve abandoned poor Gwynneth for a while. She’s been having a rough time. At least, rough for someone who’s used to having everything go her way. Kendryk stubbornly refuses to attack Teodora and has left Gwynneth behind while he works on his defenses, Father Landrus glares at her disapprovingly whenever she’s nice to the cavalry officers staying in her palace, and now Arian Orland is making a pass at her. He’s caught her on her own, and has declared his love. Gwynneth isn’t buying it. Slight creative punctuation has occurred.
“I’ve never fallen in love like this before, Princess. It’s rather upsetting,” he said with a dramatic sigh.
“It should take more than that to upset you. I’ve heard you are accomplished at this sort of thing.”
“Rumors are cruel. People don’t understand.”
“What is there to understand? You have a habit of seducing ladies and leaving them.”
“That was in the past; I’m a happily married man now. Or rather, I was, until I met you.”
Seems legit.Or not.
