Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, where I’m continuing on with a new snippet from my upcoming urban fantasy novel, Storm of the Gods. In this scene, Derek and Liam get ready to confront whoever is approaching them (Note: Derek and Liam are speaking through what’s called a blood-bond, an enchantment that allows them to communicate telepathically with each other)…
<I’ve got somebody coming up behind me, ace. You see anyone else?>
<No, I don’t think…Wait, I––>
His response was cut off, and I couldn’t answer him. I recognized the sound of a blade scraping out of a leather sheath. A sound I knew the way I knew my own soul.
I heard the intake of breath behind me. Right behind me.
The Young Adult Fantasy story I’m working on is still coming together, though I finally figured out the device that will help drive the plot. It meant I had to go back to the beginning and rework some scenes, but that’s part of the writing process, right? I’m also trying to find time to work on my query letter for Storm of the Gods, since I really want to have it done and sent out into the literary agent world, or at least done enough so I can release it on my own, but doing Real Life stuff for the condo like finding insurance and buying furniture (yay, bookcases!) is taking up most of my time. Still, I have a vacation coming up soon, which will hopefully give me the time I need to crush some words. It’s been so long since I’ve written more than 5000 in a day or edited at least three full chapters. Is it weird to say I miss that?
