I’ve been working more on my fantasy novel, and I’m so happy with how it’s going so far! Something weird just happened and somebody evil probably did it, and the MCs are low on food, and also they’re finally talking to each other a little more which is nice. XD
By my nearest count, I just hit 25/26,000 words, and that’s halfway!!! 😀 To celebrate, here’s a teeny, tiny excerpt. Disclaimer: It’s a very rough draft, have mercy, please.
His knowledge of geography didn’t account for not using the roads, but until they were a safe distance away from the main province, Arrow didn’t want to risk it. A question or two to the innkeepers they had encountered was enough to confirm they were headed east.
He glanced back at the Queen, riding silently a tail’s length behind him. So far she had followed him without a question to where they were going, but soon he would need to come up with a better direction than away.
She hadn’t questioned because she had barely spoken. Even to the child when she thought he couldn’t hear. With each passing day of the journey, she seemed to sink farther into herself, only eating when he reminded her by handing her food. He never needed to remind her to feed the child; the child reminded them both.
He broke off a stray branch and threw it to the side. The dog skittered off after it, grasped it in his mouth, and returned to his place beside the horse, carrying the stick triumphantly in his mouth. Arrow smiled slightly and felt his spirits lift.
I love that dog so much. XD
