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.
From Hammer of the Gods: While Braeden and Anton are getting knocked around, Lennart has been preparing his invasion of Kronland. Thanks to Kendryk and Gwynneth, he finally has the necessary funding, and sets out in midwinter, sailing for Helvundala, the nearest Kronland kingdom. He’s worried about his wife because she’s pretty newly pregnant and he’s pretty recently fallen in love with her. Slightly edited from the published version.
It was a beautiful day for an invasion. Lennart leaned against Drekir’s rail and enjoyed the sight of his fleet falling into line behind the flagship. The next ship sailing out of Tharvik harbor was Fifa, bearing General Lofbrok, the commander of Lennart’s troops in Helvundala.
Tharvik dwindled into the distance, shining in the weak winter sunlight. Lennart wondered if Raysa was still watching, worried she might catch cold, then shook his head to banish thoughts of his wife. He’d left Silvya Meldahl with strict instructions as to her care, and knew Silvya would follow them, perhaps even improve upon them. She was after all, her father’s daughter.
Once the city was ought of sight, Lennart turned toward the quarter-deck. The wind was no longer in his face, and Drekir ran at full sail, the white canvas bellied-out and snapping with each gust. He took the steps to the upper deck two at a time.
