Drink This


It’s a bloghop!

Hello, hello, and welcome to my seventh Weekend Writing Warriors installment. Here are the rules:

  • 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

(Find a complete set on the WeWriWa page as well as links to pages of all the authors involved. Check it out.)

Ten sentences today from my JatWW fanfiction, the Was Long Variation. Kieri has just woken after collapsing in a duel-gone-wrong:

The princess smiled as she wrung out a washcloth and laid it, chill and wet, across his forehead. “You made it back.” Before he could fully think the question that began to form in his mind, she continued. “Your talent went rogue, and you drained yourself trying to save Mother. I wasn’t sure I could break the connection between you both.” Lyarr poured a small packet of powder into a glass of water and stirred it quickly. Setting the glass on the night stand, she nodded to him. “Drink this as soon as you can; it’s an electrolyte solution.” After he’d managed a cockeyed glance at her, she nodded. “You are severely dehydrated.”

Thanks for visiting.  For further examples of my writing, please stop by for WIPpet Wednesday where I will share another excerpt from the Was Long Variation. For the month of June, I have switched to the WLV for all my bloghop snippets as I dive full-steam in the ♥Just Write♥ madness that are JuNoWriMo and Ready. Set WRITE! challenges.   Courting the Swan Song excerpts will resume in July.
