Welcome Warriors, and Snipsuns, and anyone else who wanders in. Happy April. To judge by our rain this week, May will be full of flowers. :-)
Are you doing the A to Z Challenge? If so, please leave a comment so know to visit you! :-)
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 Each week, participants sign up HERE at wewriwa.com, then post 8 sentences of their work, published or unpublished, to go live between noon, Saturday and 9:00 AM Sunday EST.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. Kad, with his friend Drave (the enforcer) has taken Tayden to a world called Shantar to hide him from Dominions thugs and henchmen. They are negotiating with the Port operator for a small boat and driver to haul them upriver--into a mountainous, wilderness area. They've just asked the Port operator to find who is willing to accept a late fare--hauling them in the dark. They've just been warned that it'll cost extra. Creative punctuation alert. :-)
Kad sidestepped to block the operator’s view of where Drave stood looking dark and menacing. "We’re good for it.”
“It’ll be cash up front, and not here-- at the boat.”
Kad nodded at the operator. The tightness in his neck and shoulders eased as he stepped away from the counter. The risk level remained high, but maybe not quite so high as it had been. This man had just shown his hand, so to speak, revealing that this hire wasn’t being handled in any kind of official way. But that was no kind of guarantee that all three of their bodies wouldn’t wind up floating face down in the river.
That's it. Whatever jumps out at you, good or bad, I'd love to hear. I need to hear it. And I'm truly grateful for every bit of criticism. I do learn from it. Have a great week, everyone
