Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. Still going through the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, the first book in my new and upcoming urban fantasy series, which is currently being formatted. Last time, Derek had collapsed and was looking at his unconscious brother while feeling guilt for attacking the rogue scions. NOTE: Scene has been creatively edited to fit the sentence limit.
I’d almost killed four people. I had shot all my fire at them without even thinking. Because they were in my way, and because I’d wanted to.
I had barely been able to see them. My fire had crashed into them like a wave. If even one of them hadn’t been fueling that makeshift barrier with their magic…
I craned my head up as much as I could, wincing at the twinge that went through it.
The four scions were running down the dirt road toward the city, getting smaller and smaller by the second. Even if we recovered now, we’d be too weak to fight them again.
Which meant we were in huge trouble.
So surprise surprise: I’m going to have to rewrite more sections of my YA Fantasy. AGAIN. I hate that I have to, but the main story just isn’t working, especially in regards to the plan I have in the series. I have kind of an idea of what I want to do, but I’m not sure how it will work out. This seriously sucks because I had been hoping to finish these edits by the end of the month so I can move onto Beta editing. But no, I’m losing faith in the story, and if I don’t love the story, readers won’t.
So I’m taking a break from that project to prepare Storm of the Gods for its new August release. Hopefully I won’t go crazy before then.
