Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 2
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors, the perfect place to discover new authors and fall in love with their writing. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I’m continuing to share from my current work in progress FPWL. The first draft is mostly done, but I made some changes in the second half of the book, which means I now have to go back and ensure continuity. It’s a companion novel to Dirigibles Are Forever and hopefully the beginning of a trilogy. It’s still pretty raw, so please be gentle;). This snippet comes directly after last week’s and we are in Clara’s point of view.
“A human steward, his nametag identified him as Jens Althoff, greeted her at the top. He looked to be in that stage where he hadn’t quite finished growing nor had quite put on the muscle that made him a man. “Wilkommen, Fräulein Riesenbeck; wir sind so glücklich Sie an Bord zu begrüßen und wünschen Ihnen einen wunderbaren Flug.”
Clara replied in accent-free German as she handed him her ticket. “Thank you for your kind welcome. I am excited to be here and am looking forward to an enjoyable flight.” She batted her eyelashes a few times. “It’s the first time I’m riding a dirigible this big,” her breathy sigh at the end was timed perfectly.
What works, what doesn’t?
Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!
