Welcome to another exciting Weekend Writing Warrior day. If you've happened here by chance, then oh boy, is this your lucky day. All over the web, there are eight sentence snippets posted by a variety of writers, in a variety of genres. There's bound to be something that stirs your breath, steals your breath away, or makes you hold your breath in fright. Any way you look at it, it's a great pulmonary literary adventure : ) If you need more info, click on the above link to find out how this whole shebang works!
This week, I'm posting the next eight lines from my WIP - tentatively titled Zelera's Revenge. Kes (a precocious young prince) has been kidnapped by his evil aunt -- Zelera. If you'd like to read previous snippets, they can be found #1 here, #2 here, #3 here, and #4 last week. A quick recap of last week, Zelera yanked Kes out from under the bed and dropped him down on his blankets...
Zelera leaned down, her face inches from his own. Her hot breath huffed against his cheek. “Now,” she grunted, “Let me tell you a story.” She smoothed back her hair as she straightened up. Then her tall skeletal frame scrunched back down onto the stool. She cleared her throat, “Once upon a time, there was a little prince.”
“Oh, is this story about me? It is, isn’t it?"
So, this is all my first unedited draft. Anything you bright eyes spot that needs a tweak? Love your comments as always : )
