Weekend Writing Warriors

It's Sunday and time for the Weekend Writing Warriors. Participants post 8 sentences from a writing project, either published or unpublished. Today I'm offering a small sampling from Loving Leonardo - The Quest (book 2 in my award-winning, Victorian polyamorous romance.
 
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 for the snippet above: Aboard a steamer bound for Paris, my trio face a substantial North Atlantic storm that makes rough crossing through the Strait of Gibraltar. Used to such ocean variables, Ellie and Luca take it in stride. At the same time, Nicolas is plagued by seasickness and spends much of the trip making use of an empty flower urn. Now in calmer waters, he begins to feel better.


An award winning love story written with a twist and a dash of reader-interactive art history. And there's more to come!

  1. Love it, so true and so humorous how a person always wants something different than what's going on at the moment. Excellent excerpt!
