This Sunday however, brings a new beginning. Weekend Writing Warriors is similar to SSS in that you post on a Sunday and there is a limit. Anyone can participate, any writer, published or unpublished, serious or frivolous, professional or amateur, no matter the genre. WeWriWa has a limit of eight sentences, so that's what you're going to get. Eight sentences--no more, no less.
For the month of February I will be posting exclusively romantic excerpts. Today's excerpt comes from Chapter 7 of my current WIP The DeFord Chronicles, Part II. Anton DuClerque has requested the hand of Baron Spencer's granddaughter. The two families are discussing the possibility of a marriage. Spencer speaks first, having commented that there is rather little in the way of a dowry.
"...I mean no disrespect to Anton. I merely wish him to understand the situation fully. I know that money is not his motivation, which leaves me to wonder what is. Surely my lords you can not argue that the boy might have his choice of nearly any maiden in Frandia.”
Anton looked Baron Spencer square in the eye. “I do not want any maiden in Frandia. I want Graciela. I swear to you that I shall honor her and protect her with the last breath in my body.”
*sigh* Hope you enjoyed my eight. I have an afternoon meeting that will interfere with my WeWriWa visiting, but rest assured I shall make the rounds.
