A quick reminder, we now officially allow up to ten sentences. Yay! The flip side of that is when a moderator checks your post--if you've gone over ten sentences, your link will be removed from the linky list-- without giving notice. So let's all stay ten and under. :-) Even one word sentences count if the punctuation brings it to a full stop.
On to fun things :-)
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 Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday, and 9:00 AM Sunday EST.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
This is Chapter 3 from my SFR WIP, Across The Night Sky . The chapter I've been pulling from ended last week. Moving on to the next chapter... No set up. I'm just going to see if you--the readers- follow what's going on. :-)
"On Tazulta, Kuylrh’s guard scrambled to the shuttle, secured all weapons, and ran pre-launch checks faster than they’d ever done them. Abraxum kept his voice calm while he issued order after order. No use letting these young men know just how alarmed he was.
"This was the most terrifying moment of his life, and it could do nothing but get worse until he righted this. His young King had been taken, plucked away from before his eyes. For the first time in all his long years, panic threatened to engulf him. A silent prayer kept repeating over and over in his mind, a mantra staving off his growing dread: Please dear Giver, make us fast enough to reach him in time."
