A History of War

This was actually last week’s WeWriWa post, but since I forgot to add the link to the linky… I’m reposting, mostly because I’m running behind on a lot of online stuff due to the holidays and teaching paperwork. 😦

Thanks for your patience. Hope you all had a great couple of weeks.


It’s a bloghop!

Good morning, and welcome to my ninth installment for the Weekend Writing Warriors. The rules are fairly simple:

  • 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.)

Today, despite plans to move on to other works, I once again offer an except from my JatWW fanfiction, the Was Long Variation, nine sentences for the ninth post, now from the palace armory:

“She said they had a history of war,” his friend muttered. The man paused to analyze a particularly vicious-looking set of swords with hook-like serrations along the upper side of the curved blades. His expression suggested an uneasy familiarity with the weapons.


Herc glanced at Nytramli who was at the moment surveying a rack of swords with a critical eye. He turned back to Jayce and shrugged. “It’s hard to see these people and see warriors. I should know better since we’ve done our best to turn Flora into one, but it doesn’t mean it seems real. Or right.”

Thank you for visit and reading.  If you would like more excerpts of my work please come back for WIPpet Wednesday.  I’m hoping to return to Courting the Swan Song for posts, but..  if you enjoyed your foray with me into my world of fanfiction, I could be persuaded to stay here a bit longer.

Your vote counts, folks.  I love spending time with my characters in whatever story I am writing.
