Weekend Writing Warriors-Steampunk WIP Snippet 4
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. It’s a companion novel to Dirigibles Are Forever and hopefully the beginning of a trilogy. This snippet comes a little after last week’s. Clara has explored some of the dirigible and joined the rest of the passengers in the lounge. Someone new just entered said lounge:
“Captain Nolan had arrived. He strode up to the first group of passengers sitting around a small table and introduced himself.
This was one of the most difficult parts of her role as an undercover agent for His Excellency, the Prime Minister. Part of her, a dark and ruthless part she had to keep under tight control, just wanted to kill the traitor. He was about to endanger hundreds if not thousands of innocent people.
But there was no guarantee that his death would be the end of it.
She followed him with her eyes as he worked his way around the room, being all captain-y and in charge.
And the smuggler and seller of bombs so small and sophisticated, yet so powerful they could not be allowed to change hands – hands that were probably unfriendly towards the Empire.”
What works, what doesn’t?
I was nearly ready to write “The End” and then I realized a couple of things which mean I’m now probably another 10-15k away from “The End”. Not quite sure how I feel about that…
Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Writing!
