Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-10 sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
Here’s a segment that features more of the “Animal crew,” or how I refer to these characters in shorthand. Here we see Ilsi opening herself to Yildirim soldiers that might actually want to help her in order to help themselves. Can you tell Bear is fun to write?
“Can you use Yildirim powers—shock people?” Ilsi asked hesitantly.
“This here ship is specially designed ter block any and all magic,” Bear said. “No lightning, no amulets, no . . . whatever it is you can do.”
“So what have you even heard about me?” Ilsi said, finishing up her soup.
“That you done pissed off the good captain,” Bear grinned. “Takes a special soul teh do that.”
“Oh, I could write a ballad on what I think of the good captain,” Ilsi muttered.
“I’ve already got a name for her,” Bear said to Wren. “What’s you say to Cat?”
Hooray! Initiation! Check out other snippets here. You can also learn more about the novel, Destiny Seeker, here. Don’t forget to comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well! Compliments and constructive insight are equally welcome.

Great dialog. I love Bear, too!!
Great snippet! Bear sounds like fun, but I really like Ilsi as well. 🙂
I picture Bear as super-cute, just from the way he talks. Nice job!
LOL! This is a fun excerpt. I’m thinking you have fun writing all your characters because you’re attached to all of them in different ways – which I think is necessary. Looking forward to more!
Well now that she’s getting her own animal name, I guess she’s going to fit in ok! Enjoying the story, another great snippet.
They continue to be amusing and frank.
Ooh. I love this, especially the “I could write a ballad” line. Excited to see where this goes!
