The votes for my character interviews have been going well so far. At the moment, it looks like Kalegos is in the lead! Which is both exciting and daunting because he is definitely the character that I know least about right now.
In the last two weeks of my SSHK interviews, the race is between Kalegos and Zri. See any of my previous posts for a synopsis of the two. 🙂 Once this round is finished, I’ll be moving onto the characters from Queen of Hearts which should already be slightly more familiar to you.
Now, onto the main business of today.
Today I’ll be sharing with you a snippet from Queen of Hearts which follows on from the last few weeks. 103 words: 10(0) for the day, 2 for the month plus 1 for luck. 🙂
Three days later, the rashes on Kara’s arms and neck had faded to angry red splotches. Her throat still burned when she swallowed but the nausea had abated and she could keep down the thin broths Lyea brought her. Propped up on the pillows, she watched the snow falling beyond the window and pondered over what Lyea had told her. The poison that wasn’t designed to kill. A poison made with wild carrot, piril, pomegranate seeds and hyssop. And rue.
“Lyea?” she called.
The maid poked her head around the door to the antechamber. “Lady?”
“Go the Archivist. I need books on botany.”
Other exciting thing that happened this week – I downloaded Scrivener. So far I’m quite enjoying it and I’ll be posting an initial review on Friday. 🙂
