Alright, so I am trying out a new blog hop called Weekend Writing Warriors (check it out here) It’s a weekly post where you share 8 sentences from your WIP. So, since this is my first time, I am going to start with the first 8 sentences of my manuscript. Hope you enjoy!
Fire burned in my chest with each breath. I could feel the sludge spores, still rooted in my lungs from when they had nearly killed me three years ago. Green fingers of rot, choking me from the inside. A constant reminder of how closely we danced with death.
I coughed and spit a mouthful of phlegm, brackish green with sludge, onto the steel floor of the submarine that was our home.
Asa looked up from the metal slab he worked over. It had once been a strategy table for important men. Now it served as both kitchen and triage.

Sorry for the short post and radio silence, but I have a good reason, I promise. It’s almost finals week! I have been frantically finishing projects, papers, and studying for finals. So hopefully this little tidbit will hold y’all over until I am finished with finals. And a real quick shout out to all the amazing moms out there 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day and for those of y’all with finals coming up like me…
