Sunday Snippet


This is "old" writing, as in not written since I started putting up snippets, but I'm too drained from the recent visit, traveling, and head cold to drag any new words onto the screen.




[Srila's] hand trembled, but she managed to give her daughter the vial.

Lelo’s smile was radiant. She drew back her arm and leapt into the air as she hurled the vial against the wall. Shards of red clay flew every direction in a starburst.
       Catching the faint perfume of the released euphoria, Srila thought her heart might do the same.

“Thank you, mima." Lelo bent down to embrace her. "I’m going to help you. You don’t need the euphoria. You’ll see.”
      Srila hugged her back, but inside she was weeping. 




I hope vow to have new words by next Sunday.

Oooohhh, is Srila going cold turkey? That could be interesting. Well, not for Srila, obviously. :p

Soon I'll have words for you to read, and you will find out. :D

Ah... Makes me want to catch up on the parts of the story I've missed.

:D Many things have advanced, that is for sure. Too bad I'm going to have to cut out 10K of the 60K I have written on book 2. :(

I do love that snippet, new or not!

I've been away from the Internet at Readercon these past days, but I'll be returning home within the next few hours, and **then** I will wrap up Oracle Gretel and put it in the mail to you ♥

Oracle Gretel all for me?! I'm so pleased and honored that you could snag me a copy. *hugs*

All for you my dear! But I need your current address--I only have the one from before you moved (or at least, that's all I'm turning up when I look at my address book...)
