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.
After taking a peek at Winter of the Wolf, this week, we’re back to Hammer of the Gods. Lennart has landed his armies in the kingdom of Helvundala, ruled by Kendryk’s cousin, Prince Stepan. Lennart needs Stepan as an ally, and is telling him of his plans. Slightly edited from the published version.
“I don’t plan to stay with you long,” Lennart said. “My other generals are setting up in Terragand, and I’ll march west with you as soon as you gather up your army.”
“You want me to go west?” Stepan raised his eyebrows. “I’m afraid I don’t understand. I won’t take my army out of Helvundala with both Mattila and Ensden on the loose, with no one to stop them.”
“I’m stopping them,” Lennart said, reminding himself to be polite, “and you’ll help me.”
“Hmm,” Stepan said, “we must discuss it further, I’m sure.”
“We’ve already discussed it.” Lennart reminded himself to breathe deeply.
