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. Last week, the scions began arguing while Derek let himself enter the Berserker Rage, his most powerful ability. Now we get an idea of what that will allow him to do, since he is not happy…
“They were supposed to be,” the woman shouted at the dark-scion.
Metal screeched and the dracaenae yowled. The truck rocked violently.
I still didn’t care.
“Guys!” The storm-scion shoved out his hands and fired two blasts of yellow-tinted lightning at my chest. I ducked from one of them but the other caught me in the chest and knocked me back. I felt the impact, but there was no pain. It was a setback, nothing more.
I gathered more magic, feeling the intense and welcome heat of my fire spread out from my palms and crawl up my arms.
Only two more days until NaNoWriMo! I’m soooo not ready! I’ve got a few more outlines to do for the settings and the characters, and need to give the plot a few tweaks, but I’m really excited about the new direction it will take. I’m really going to clamp down on Monday and get as much done as I can before I start the rewrites. Thankfully, my editor is taking more time with Storm of the Gods, which will buy me time to plan its release and focus on my NaNoWriMo novel.
