#8 Sunday-Something New



Welcome warriors to another week of sharing a current project or a completed work. Had a nice weekend and the whole family went to see the new Ant Man movie. I didn’t know Michael Douglas played Pim. 🙂 He nailed it and the movie was better than I expected. Anyway, let’s get to the good stuff. LOL. For anyone who wants to follow along with the blog hop click here www.wewriwa.com. Today, I’m using a snippet from a pet project I’m working on when I need a break from the 3rd book in A World Beyond. Its pretty raw but I have a vague idea of where I want to go with it so we’ll see. Below my heroine has received a mysterious message

“Senior Guard Manx, a moment.” Efan, one of the palace guards, hurried to her side.

Cellie kept her pace, rapid strides moving through the multiple corridors of the palace. “Yes, Efan.”

“Commander Brom sent a message for you.”

Shoving at the blonde spikes of her hair, Cellie shot a look at the guard she’d personally trained. “What’s the message, Efan?”

The youth grinned, blue eyes alight. “It’s a private vid cube, Senior Guard.”

Cellie sighed, the Commander continued to try her patience.

      Thanks Charmaine. This should be a fun story. The two have a feisty relationship. Or will as I continue to work on it. LOL

    The private vid cube intrigues me. It’s always fun to retool and rename conveniences & functions (like communication systems) when writing sci-fi.

      Yes its fun but there’s the fine line between too foreign and confusing and the sweet spot of “that makes sense” LOL

    Ooh, a private vid cube, that’s interesting! Enjoyed the snippet as always. Putting on my Moderator hat, please remember to put one of our Badges on the post next time, ok? I know you did put the link back to the central page so that was great.

    Sounds like she doesn’t like to be kept out of the loop much. A fun character to write, I bet!

    Oh, I’m intrigued. She’s trained him so I’m assuming she’s his superior officer, but he has no trouble being a little casual with her. And now I want to know what the message is;).
