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 Fall of the Titan: After being rescued, Princess Maryna is headed out of the mountains and back home, with Anton providing security. He’s decided to take her to the first person of importance they come across, which turns out to be Princess Keylinda of Fromenberg. Greta is girl from a mountain village and Maryna’s somewhat domineering companion.
Sometimes, Greta was all right, though her mouth fell open and stayed open when Princess Keylinda’s palace, Sarbrunnen, came into view.
It occurred to Maryna that she’d probably never seen a palace before. “It’s lovely, isn’t it? It reminds me a bit of the Maxima’s palace in Allaux. I suppose Fromenberg copies Galladian architecture, as so many kingdoms do now.”
“What’s architecture?” Greta asked, “and why is one little princess living in such a huge building?”
Maryna laughed as they rode down the long, tree-lined approach to the palace. “I don’t know if she’s little, and she likely has a family, and servants of course.”
Greta shook her head and snorted, apparently finding the idea ridiculous. “No one needs that many servants.”
