Weekend Writing Warriors 11/10/13

First, I'm so sorry my posting and visiting got messed up last week. iPad apps can be frustrating, the touchscreen can be frustrating, holy crap. I've got a bluetooth keyboard for the iPad now but I still prefer the laptop, I think.

Next, because I'm enjoying the whole discovery thing with my NaNo story, I'm going to post from that this week. I'll get back to Street Glass. In this excerpt from my story Night Shift, the female main character (Devorah) is talking to the angel Adrael; Devorah speaks first. And that's all I'll tell you right now :D :D
“What do you want me to do?”

“The assistance I need is from my peers. You may want to allow us some space.”

“Oh -- oh.” I scurried across the hall to stand by the stairway. Great. I had a half-dead half-demon on my floor, and my entryway was about to be filled with angels trying to save him. I was willing to bet Dan Brown hadn’t done this kind of research.
The imaginative participants at Weekend Writing Warriors will show you snippets of romances, breakups, fantasy lands, cities on other planets, lands far back in Earth's history and some far in our future. I'm pretty picky about the stuff I read and I've found lots of stories I can't wait to read more of!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, and for all the continuing wonderful comments. They really make my week :-D

    1. Hey Cindy! Am having tons of fun with this. At first Devorah didn't have much personality but it's coming out as I write.
