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.
A few weeks ago, we left Elektra- Teodora’s teenage daughter- at the mercy of Braeden, who wants to kill her. She’s doing some fast talking in an attempt to change his mind. He’s already softened up enough to untie her and give her something to eat. And those of us who know Braeden, know it’s easy to soften him up just a little more. Slight creative punctuation and editing.
“I doubt very much sending Mother my head would bother her in the least,” Elektra said. “She doesn’t care for me at all. In fact, I don’t think she usually remembers she has children.”
“I still think it would send a message,” Braeden said.
“Just a message that you’re unhinged.” Elektra did her best to pretend they weren’t talking about sending her own head to her mother in a bag. “Trust me, she wouldn’t care. She might even put it on a spike on the city wall to show how much she doesn’t care. You have no idea what she’s like.”
“I know what she’s like,” Braeden said, “I’ve spent far too much time with that witch.
Hmm, perhaps they can find common ground in their hatred for Teodora?
