This is my second time with the Weekend Writing Warriors. I'm sharing my 8 sentences from one of my current WIPs, The Voyage of the Inara Marue.
A voice I hadn't heard before entered my field of hearing. I tried to lick my lips and found that I couldn't because there was no moisture available. The crowd parted and sitting where Alvarez normally sat was the prettiest man I had even seen in my life. I shook my head, pretty was the wrong word, handsome was the word for a man. "What -- it's -- it's like I'm becoming scrambled. The words -- the words -- the words don't match any more." I realized just how little control I had over this new technology. If I had been given full control I might be able to understand what was going on better.
This novel is a sci-fi with romantic elements and is about a woman who was modified without her permission. Her modifications are many, like limbs, eyes and nanites flowing through her body. She was built for a special mission but those in power at the military want her for something very different.
