This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book! :)
The Tale of the Good Pirate, Robert (working title) is a story about a bird named Robert who fancies himself a pirate; he lives in a land called Locreya. It is the land of infinity: infinite possibilities, infinite opportunities, infinite positivity. Just as there is darkness in our world, there is darkness in Robert's world. It is a land called Mulrad. It is the land of misery, built on the tears of children. When three of his crew men are kidnapped and sent to Mulrad, Robert must find a way to save them, and to bring peace to both lands.
Background on the snippet: Three of Robert's crew have been kidnapped and sent to Mulrad. Robert and his crew overtook another ship (but they guided that captain and crew to safety first); they tore it apart. Now, are on the Purple River (the body of water separating Locreya from Mulrad), placing a large, wooden, vertical post (from the mast of the other ship) of some sort.
Snippet in 9:
Robert flew above Pegleg Pete guiding him. He was telling him to place a vertical post.
I couldn’t understand why we’d sink the mast of the boat in the water vertically to be used as a post. What kind of post? What for? My curiosity got the best of me. “What are you doing?”
Robert turned his little head. “Making our way in and out of Mulrad.”
I hope you liked it!
