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.
More from Fall of the Titan, which is almost ready to go to beta readers! Last week, Braeden and Devyn’s young friend Trisa had been badly wounded in battle, and was going into surgery. Braeden, Gwynneth and Devyn have been waiting to hear how it went. The doctor finally appears: (creatively punctuated)
“She’s survived the surgery at least. The wound wasn’t terribly deep, but it’s hard to say how much damage was done; we’ll know more in the next few days.”
“I must see her,” Devyn said.
The doctor shook his head, then paused when he saw Devyn’s determined expression, “She must rest and have quiet.”
“I’ll be quiet,” Devyn said, “I swear it.”
“Will he be quiet?” the doctor asked Gwynneth, “I will not have the young lady disturbed in any way.”
“He’ll be quiet,” Gwynneth said, giving Devyn a stern look, “You may sit by her bed, but you must not speak. At all. Can you do that?”
“I can,” Devyn said, then added, “I don’t talk all the time, you know.”
