Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop! Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished.

Today I'm offering another small sampling from Loving Leonardo - The Quest.
The ongoing series began as news taken from a single day's headlines. Treating the talking points of the day to a Victorian spin, I created an award-winning polyamorous romance with an unusual touch of reader-interactive art history.

First my 8, then details after:

My dignity restored, I rejoined the world of the hale and hearty and enjoyed tea with a biscuit. When Ellie had asked the steward about the state of things, the man informed her that we’d actually made good time in the storm and would be arriving in port the following morning. After the last several hours, I couldn’t wait to touch ground. It’s funny how the mind decides such things. For the entire uncomfortable coach ride over Italy’s rough roads, I longed for the opulent comfort of an ocean liner. Today I felt I’d rather sit bare-assed on a fakir’s bed of nails as long as that bed sat on dry land. As it was, we needed to eventually cross the English Channel to Brighton. I pushed the unwelcome eventuality from my mind.

Behind the scenes:
My lovers are in possession of Leonardo da Vinci's book and the hunt for clues hidden in artworks is on. Having faced a rough sea through the Strait of Gibraltar, Nicolas longs for dry land.

  1. Lovely snippet love this " Today I felt I’d rather sit bare-assed on a fakir’s bed of nails as long as that bed sat on dry land" :-)

  2. Oh, no! That doesn't sound like any fun at all. Really like the voice:)

  3. So true, about wishing for something different and then when it arrives, uh oh. I thoroughly enjoyed the "voice" in this scene. Another excellent excerpt!
