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.
This might be my last snippet from Fall of the Titan, since I’m deep into the first book of a new series that I’m anxious to share.
On his way north to rescue his family, King Lennart stops in to visit Trystan’s mom, Princess Edyta. She’s been a reluctant ally so far. Edited from the published version.
Princess Edyta wasn’t happy to see him, especially since he’d misplaced Trystan, as she saw it.
“He’s fine,” Lennart protested, “had quite an adventure in Tirovor and even killed a fearsome Maladene in a duel.”
“Idiotic,” Edyta sniffed, “I can’t believe you let him run off after some little princess.”
“She’s not some little princess; she’s the ruler of Terragand,” Lennart said, sitting down beside her.
“If she can ever get it back.” Edyta shook her head. “If I’d known you couldn’t finish Teodora by now, I would never have lent you my support.”
Lennart breathed in and counted to ten. He couldn’t afford to antagonize this woman right now, unpleasant though she was.
