Weekend Writing Warriors: Sunday 8 February 2014 (Character Interview: Inside the Jump)

I have finished the correspondence with Iric Desnaray. He has his instructions and can be trusted to handle the matter independently. The full complement of the passengers is complete, and I am amused that Lady Luck has seen fit to place Martisset the Younger among them. I may be able to accomplish more than one goal here.

She is on her way to the Original World, or what may prove so — well, that’s a romantic fancy, and perhaps I should let out the leash a bit and let her fulfill that pilgrimage before asking her to return to this world and take up her destiny. A powerful will, that one. She does not fear to oppose me, and that is not altogether a bad thing. When I read the campaigns of dead emperors, the refusal to take counsel of one’s high command is a common failing.

    I always love the flow of language in your excerpts. Another great 8! =D

  3. I’m with the others, the language is wonderful…the narrator seems arrogant though and so I’m automatically pulling for Martisset! To do what, I don’t know though LOL. Very powerful excerpt!
