So I’ve seen a few other writing blogs that do a Writing Wednesday or a WIP Wednesday and I wanted to do something similar but different. So here you have the first What’s Up Wednesday!
And what will I talk about in What’s Up Wednesday. What’s up with my writing of course. This is a writing blog after all. 😉
Well, I’ve given my current WIP a new working title of Moon Dragons. Sounds a lot better than Dragons in Space space space space! And I’m currently up to over 30,000 words out of about 70,000. I really have no clue how long this is going to be but I’m pretty sure I’m not quiet half way through the story yet.
I was hoping to get a lot more words on the page the last few days but I got caught up in the beginning stages of developing two of my main alien characters. At first I wanted to make them “simply evil” but after reading that character book I reviewed last post I realized that would not be a good idea. So I had to come up with some basic motivations and reasons for why they do what they will eventually do, which I’m not 100% sure of yet. 😀
And now for a few lines from Moon Dragons:
Sonya looked over her shoulder at her teacher Master Abdul… “I don’t think I can do it, sir.”
“And why not?”
She swallowed the lump in her throat. “I’m afraid of heights, sir,” she whispered.
Master Abdul let out a belly laugh. “You want to fly in space but you’re afraid of heights?”
Sonya shrugged. “There’s no gravity in space, sir. No falling down.”
