Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July. I actually wrote a phenomenal amount of words for myself, 1800! My hands were possessed by inspiration, I suppose. Let’s hope for more of that today 🙂
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and about 100-150 words starting on the third paragraph of page 23. 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 :
“Are you okay?” Jamari whispers when the captain turns and references the screen.
I am in control at all times—right now, I’m not. Everything about Ryu shouts restlessness, chaos and defiance. The worst part is when I’m near him those qualities bleed into me. And I’m afraid my insolent actions during the field exercise this morning won’t be my last. My eyes drift to him. He still doesn’t seem to be paying attention to the lecture anymore than me.
“Fine,” I whisper back. Skinny Boy shifts around in his seat, I’m not sure if he’s annoyed or afraid of getting caught. The stern woman at the lectern would punish the entire class for one recruit’s outburst. Why not make the whole Dragonology class hate me—I’m on a roll today. Jamari studies me for a second then leans back in her chair until the end of the lecture. I hate that she knows my weaknesses, I’ve let few people in. To everyone else I am a soldier. Jamari is the only person who knows the real Kaliyah, a teenage girl.
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
