Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. I’m still posting the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, the first book in my new and upcoming urban fantasy series. But we’re skipping a head a little this time. Last time, Derek was unleashing his significant power against the scions who attacked him and his now unconscious younger brother. But Derek has noticed that the dracanae they were transporting when they were attacked has now been freed and is eyeing his brother with hungry eyes. Derek has made his choice, and now we get to see just how dangerous this beast truly is…
I took in its horrific visage as I ran. Thick, olive- green scales covering the lower half of its serpentine body. A tail as thick as my bicep. Rough, cracked scales along its torso, stretched along corded arms. Four thick fingers tipped with hooked talons. Slits for nostrils, an ear-to-ear mouth of sharp teeth, raised eye bones, and bulging yellow eyes with vertical pupils. A coldblooded nightmare.
But I can be a nightmare, too.
NaNoWriMo is kicking my ass. Not gonna lie. I hoped to be waaaaaay ahead of where I am now, but the last couple days have been dismal as far as new words go. This is what I get for choosing rewrites rather than writing from scratch! Gah! Oh well. I still have a couple days to catch up, and I might just squeak past the 50K mark. I’m nearly done Part One of the story and despite all the extensive work that has to be done (Oh God, what did I get myself into???), I’m really happy with the story and the world.
