Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. Boy, I’m late today, usually schedule this post for an early morning. I’m still making way on my new project. I love when I’m excited about writing. The excerpt I’ve chosen for this week is from a YA fantasy novel with strong romantic elements about dragons. Because dragons are just cool.
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and your 3rd paragraph on page 18. No need for critique, just a little writer love.

“Fine,” I whisper back. Skinny Boy shifts around in his seat, I’m not sure if he’s annoyed or afraid of getting caught. Why not make the whole Dragonology class do push-ups—I’m on a roll today.
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
