My YA fantasy, AMONG DRAGONS and MEN
- Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP.
- Go to line 7.
- Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating
“Do not fret!” Blathe called out in the frantic mess that was her mind. “I won’t let us perish!” Melody had no idea what this voice, this person, this being of her imagination could do or even try. But his words were a comfort no less, even though they came from an unexpected source. Her breathing slowed, becoming more measured. The thud of her heart crammed out all fear as she felt a sense of calm overtake her.
She heard a whistle, then gasped as darkness engulfed her. She tumbled and rolled against leathery skin. A man cried out. She heard, more than she felt, her rescuer crash into the ground. Branches or bones – she didn’t know which - cracked and snapped. Scales slid across land like a fast-breaking locomotive, until they ground to a halt.
That is a bit over the seven but I wanted to include the last of that bit. So thank you to Charlie, Brooke and others. It was nice breaking out this WiP and sharing something from it :-)
