Welcome to another installment in the fantastic, exciting, and ever brilliant Weekend Writing Warriors snippets extravaganza! If you happened upon this humble blog by chance, and want to know who else is involved, and how you can also partake in the fun, please, by all means, click this here link! The skinny is this...writer's from all over the world, post eight sentences from their published works, or works in progress each and every Sunday. Then they read each other's splendiferous words, sometimes they laugh, sometimes they cry, and at times read stuff that scares the bejeezus out of them. A few of those fantastic writer's words are hot stuff, so you might want to keep a fan handy! They also post words of encouragement, ask questions, offer ideas or gentle critique.
Okay, so this week I'm continuing on with Ravyn and Ena. If you remember, we left Ena pondering the girl before her, and the explanations she's been given. I've been creative with punctuation, which is probably pretty obvious.
“How long will this journey take you?”
Ravyn noticed the smoke from the dragon’s nostrils had decreased to a slim plume. “...I have to get to Aigerach first, and well, you have rather destroyed my transportation. It’s going to take me a week at least to put together a seaworthy raft to get me across that channel. A half day of sailing, I’d guess, then it’ll probably take a month or so to cross over the land to get to Veris. How long till your egg hatches?”
“Over a month, as long as it’s kept warm--this aunt of yours stole it for blood, you think? Who knows if my baby still lives,” Ena began to sob, hiccupping a puff of smoke.
Oh, my. Don't you just want to give that momma dragon some loving? Poor girl...
Since we are in the month of November, I'd just like to say, I'm thankful I happened upon WeWriWa, and all you amazing and supportive writers. Please consider yourself truly appreciated!
