Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. I’m in the dragon zone over here at Romance Done Write at 8k. And like I mentioned last week I definitely made some changes. I have a steep daily goal of 1000-1300 words a day, cross your fingers I can do it! Here’s what’s going on.
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and about 100-150 words starting on the first paragraph on p. 4. I know I have a few non-writers, so you may also post an excerpt from your current blog post-in-progress. No need for critique, just a little writer love.
Here’s mine :
“I don’t know why I said that.”
“I do,” Jamari says. I look up at her. The way the sides of her black hair are slicked against her head so the middle sticks up straight in a fan of spikes, like the sharp spines that run from head to tail of a black horn-ridged Stoker, gives her another four inches on her already towering frame. “His I-don’t-give-a-dragon’s-balls-about-anything attitude makes me want to feed him to the dragons myself. So I get your frustration. Besides, nothing good ever came out of The Flats anyway,” she says with a shrug.
I frown. “That’s not true. You’re from The Flats and your instincts are better than half of the recruits graduating this year.”
“I wasn’t talking about myself, Bana.” Jamari addresses me by recruit protocol and winks. I shake my head as I give a low chuckle, the way it fills my chest is unfamiliar. The Akademie doesn’t frown upon laughter, but it isn’t encouraged either.
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
