Time for the Sunday Fiction Post-up! Come share your current work-in-progress here. My submission is in for Pitch Wars, so this will be the last excerpt for my YA dragon fantasy. I’ll have to figure out what I’ll be writing next while await the announcement for who got in as mentees. Wish me luck!!!
I invite you to post your title, genre/sub-genre and about 100-150 words starting with the the second paragraph on page 77. 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 :
“You’re supposed to be my partner, you didn’t lift a finger.”
“You’re quite capable on your own.”
I clench my jaw until it feels like my teeth will crumble under the pressure. The only thing keeping me on this spot with my mouth shut is the agreement. Right now, I’d like to show him how capable I am. Xavier lets his arms fall to his side and the mask of authority slips away for a moment. “You surprise me, Bana.”
I don’t trust myself to say anything appropriate, so I don’t speak.
“Captain warned me you were temperamental and impulsive. I don’t see it,” Xavier says. I open my mouth to object, and he shakes his head to stop me. “Let’s keep it that way.” His eyes gleam with a trace of humor, and a small smile finds its way to my lips. He gets me.
Have a great Sunday! And Write on!
