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.
I’m finally back! It’s so nice to be writing again and to be back on the hop. I really missed you guys. If you aren’t caught up on the drama, you can read my posts for the past few months. Thanks to everyone who followed along and lent me their support, both moral and financial. Writers really are the best!
At this point, I’m working flat out on the severely belated conclusion to my series. Book Six is called Blood of the Empire, and I’m somewhere in the middle of the first draft. Hopefully I can get it finished during NaNoWriMo. It picks up shortly after the end of Fall of the Titan. Teodora was captured and spent a few months in the dungeon. Serves her right! After being defeated, General Mattila escaped from the battlefield with Elektra, and headed straight to where Teodora is being held prisoner. Now they’re about to negotiate her release.
At first Elektra didn’t recognize Teodora, she was so gaunt, her head shaved. Her eyes were the worst though, hollow and a strange, flat shade of black. When they met hers, Elektra found herself shrinking back, though she forced herself to look happy.
“I’m glad you’re all right, Mother,” she said, taking a chair next to her.
“What are you doing here?” Teodora asked, no hint of any emotion on her face.
“It’s a long story.” Elektra wasn’t looking forward to telling it. “Let’s get you out of here first.”
“Yes, let’s.” Teodora turned away and didn’t look at her again.
