Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns, and anyone else who wanders in. I hope everyone is having a good weekend. If you're in the USA and traveling for the holiday, be safe on the highways. I'll be heading out later today with hubby and two dogs heading an hour and a half north to our daughter's house for a barbecue. Tomorrow, the local small town has a parade and a Memorial Day Ceremony at the gazebo in the park. It might take me a day or two to make my rounds to read all of the great snippets. :-)
Weekend Writing Warriors is a weekly bloghop. Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST. Then we visit each other and read, comment, critique, encourage--all those things that do a solitary writer's heart good.
Snippet Sunday group from facebook--not us, but many of our participants do both, can be found HERE
Set up. I've skipped ahead a few paras. They've finished eating, and Fode (the Port Operator) is tired, and he's questioning the plan that Kad and company have decided.
Fode glanced at all three of them, then propped his elbows on the table. Lifting his fingers to his temples, he began to rub in a circular motion, making his eyes open, then nearly close, open, then nearly close. “Are you sure you wanna head upriver tonight? Awfully dark by the time you get there—to be heading into the mountains. You know what I’m saying?”
Kad had a gut a feeling that the guy was okay, but still nodded at Drave, looking for his opinion. The big guy always seemed to have a crystal ball when it came to picking out sneaks and snitches.
Seems that they've worked through the worst of it without Drave drawing blood. ;-)
That's it. What jumps out at you, good or bad? I'd love to hear it. Thank you so much for reading this.
