Another excerpt from Ascended. I made amazing progress on Thursday when I had a break from work, writing nearly 7,000 words. I’m still behind on my wordcount goals, but I have plenty of time to catch up.
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 Sign the linky, then on Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished.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.
In my last post I touched on the hostility of Sunforge citizens toward refugees from Shipwreck Island. Sallei Corvus may be preparing to marry the Lord of Sunforge, but the citizens have not forgotten who she is or where she was born. This excerpt introduces Foreman Zander, who is the main antagonist of the story. He is a foreman in one of Sunforge’s arms factories and member of the emerging middle class.
Some snipping has been made to fit the 8-sentence structure and help the excerpt flow better.
