So it’s only Wednesday and already I’m over uni despite it only being back three days. However, I did get a few rounds of editing done on Queen of Hearts before I had to return to my academic reality. If last year is anything to go by, I’m unlikely to do much more on the editing front until midterm break. We shall see though.
I also had a really weird experience today where a song came onto the radio that told the story of some of my characters, in a different setting of course but the similarities were pretty evident. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqGTcfUQLRU
For today’s WIPpet, I have a sentence from chapter 15 of Queen of Hearts . 5 x 3 =15
That night, with the funeral pyre lit like a beacon high upon the city walls, the first of the Haelean army arrived.

That one sentence says volumes. Wow.
I don’t blame you a bit for feeling done with things even after only a few days back. Hang in there.
I agree with Amy – great sentence. And all the best – it is pretty full on settling back in.
Ooo… meaty! The tension is high and all we needed was one sentence to know that. 🙂
Gorgeous line! It paints a very vivid and intriguing picture!
What a sentence… I can almost see the mourning reflected in the dark eyes of the people in the city, the cautious, guarded loos of the militia on the walls….
Ah, yes, Uni. Remember to take care of yourself. It can get tiring, but it enriches you so.
Hehe thanks 🙂 I’m glad the sentence painted such a vivid scene for you.
This is serious stuff. You’ve managed to convey a lot in one sentence. It makes me wonder what’s going to happen next.
Tension, excitement and drama, that’s what. 🙂
I totally get where you’re coming from with uni! Amazing sentence as well, although I expected no less.
Haha thanks 🙂 Hope everything is going well for you at uni 🙂
I love that sentence. Very powerful. And it’s awesome when songs connect like that, isn’t it?
Yes, definitely. But also a bit weird. 🙂
