WeWriWa ~ My Unpublished 8 ~ #8Sunday #LynnCrain

Hi everyone!

This week is my seventh time with the Weekend Writing Warriors. Here’s 8 sentences from one of my current WIPs, The Voyage of the Inara Marue.

"Without a doubt. He was actually in our unit in the war." She leveled her gaze on him. "If truth be told, he was the one who sacrificed me to the IED god. He wasn't one of your nicer soldiers. He should have been a defendant in some of the abuse trials that took place after the first wave. I actually thought he was dead and that was why he wasn't listed on any roster when I finally got around to reading the court transcripts."
He knew his shock registered on his face when he heard her chuckle.

This is a sci-fi novel with romantic elements. The story is about a woman who was physically and genetically modified without her permission. The modifications are extensive and include eyes, limbs and nanotechnology in the form of nanites flowing through her. She was built for a special mission but those in power at the military want her for something very different and it’s not for the good of mankind. She has to fight not only for herself but the whole of mankind.
Hope you enjoyed my Sunday 8. Please go check out the other WeWriWa authors this week, just click on the logo or paste this link into your browser and visit all the wonderful authors writing this weekend.

  1. Love the line, 'sacrificed to the IED gods'. Great use of the 8's.

  2. Sounds like a nice guy. He sacrificed her, time for pay back!

  3. I think you have a great story going here.

  4. I'm interested in her feeling about all of this: she's got a lot to deal with and if it was me, I don't think I could be as level-headed as her :-)

  5. I like the tidbits you keep giving us. so much happened to her and now they plan to use her for worse things

  6. Such an intriguing story. I just really want to read the entire thing. Her laugh at that exact point in time is a bit chilling inagoodway - excellent excerpt!

  7. Well, there's a little more head-hopping here than I'd like. I was really jarred by the last sentence. But the premise is really intriguing and the dialogue (monologue?) is extremely good. Keep it up!
