Good morning, and welcome to my third Weekend Writing Warriors installment.
The rules are simple enough:
- Add your name and genre(s) to the most recent post on the WeWriWa site
- Post a link to the WeWriWa site on your blog/Sunday post
- Keep your excerpt 10 sentences or less (8-10, no more!)
- Visit other WeWriWa authors and experience their work
(There’s a complete set on the WeWriWa page for anyone interested in joining, as well as links to pages of all the authors involved. Check it out.)
Today, I give you nine sentences from Courting the Swan Song, my main WIP for the next month.
Alanii blinked. “You spar for your Nooning devotions? But the raising of blades—”
“That’s Isana for you,” Val grunted. “We eat our Nooning feasts with our knives alone. Knives serve the Hearth Maid after all, and She wields them in the service of her faithful.” Then Val smiled wryly. “Or so the old wives try to tell us when we’re little enough to not know better. Only a soldier would pray to a goddess with chimney soot and blade scars along Her weathered body.”
Nothing like two friends debating religion, is there? 🙂
