Apologies for my late entry in Weekend Writing Warriors.
It’s simple and fun. Sign the linky list with your name, blog url and email address on Mondays, 8:00 AM EST. Each week, the list remains open until Saturday, 11:59 PM. Then on Sunday, post 8 sentences from a current writing project, published or unpublished.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.
For this entry I’m including the last sentence in the previous post to help it flow better. Lilith is speaking first.
“But there’s a chance, isn’t there? That you can make it. And if you’re stuck between a choice of certain death and possible safety, the decision you should make is obvious, I think.”
He had to admit, she was right. Dex closed his eyes for a moment. With the confusion and hopeless he felt, his head began to ache.
“What if I fail?” He asked.
“What if you don’t?”
I’ve figured out why this is among my favorite scenes. It’s Dex’s turning point, and a defining moment for him in his role.
Next week I’ll move on to another scene, if I can post on time.
