Weekend Writing Warriors: Ascended

And now that I’m back from my blogging break, this entry comes from my NaNo project Ascended.

It’s simple and fun. Sign the linky, then on Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished. Visit other participants and offer opinions, critiques, support. Writers hanging out with writers, a good time with a great group of people.

There are two protagonists here:  Lucas Mark, Duke of the Mountains and Lord of Sunforge, and his fiancee Sallei Corvus, heir to Shipwreck Island.
Due to the speed-writing, plothole-inducing nature of NaNoWriMo, expect this excerpt to be rough.

“I saw a doctor beaten in the streets today,” Sallei said.  “Three children ganged up on him.  One of them took his cane and struck him with it until he fell.  Then while the other two kicked and stomped on him, he broke the cane in two and stabbed the man with it.  I saw parents nearby, watching out of the corners of their eyes, and did nothing.  That was only one doctor, but the violence will escalate.  I know it will be hard, Lucas, but you are the only one in this city who can do something.  So find a way and do it!”

  1. Your story sounds interesting! The excerpt paints a bleak picture of that society; I'm curious about what Lucas and Sallei are like. Sallei has a clear-cut conscience, what about Lucas?

    I expect NaNo-induced potholes in my story too, but we won't let that stop us, will we! 😀
