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.
Gwynneth has finally been liberated from the besieged castle by Arryk and his ally, Arian Orland. Back in Rise of the Storm, Gwynneth and Arian had an affair, which caused all kinds of grief. They haven’t seen each other since Kendryk sent him packing. Gwynneth is about eight months pregnant and Arian’s first words when he sees her are:
“I need to know,” he said. “Is it mine?”
Such an unexpected question nearly sent her into hysterical laughter. She pushed it down. Whatever had passed between them, he had helped free her now and didn’t deserve to be insulted. “It’s not,” she said softly, shaking her head. “I’m sure of it.”
“Oh.” He seemed disappointed.
“It’s for the best, I think.”
I don’t know why Gwynneth is so sure *rollseyes* but all shall be revealed at some point in Hammer of the Gods, which is done! (ish) My first reader has pronounced it adequate, so it will go to beta readers as soon as I’ve had a chance to read it over and make sure it’s not complete nonsense.
