Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 3
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 day job blew up all over me so I haven’t had the time to work on my revisions adding to my general levels of frustration. *exhales and finds her happy place* It’s a companion novel to Dirigibles Are Forever and hopefully the beginning of a trilogy. This snippet comes shortly after last week’s when Clara made the young steward blush.
“Clara took pity on him; she nodded her thanks and followed the Otto. The automaton was anchored into the floor on a track and rolled ahead of her. The anchor made sense as it meant the machine would remain stable during turbulences or altitude drops.
It also meant it could only follow predetermined routes.
Out of the corner of her eyes Clara catalogued the tracks, mapping them in her head against the intel she’d received before the mission.
Within a few minutes they stood outside a non-descript door. She had the expected corner cabin giving her only one neighbour-and that cabin would miraculously stay unoccupied.
It were the details that counted.”
What works, what doesn’t?
Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!
