Welcome back for another installment of Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop for anyone who likes to write. I’m still sharing from Come Back Down. Today’s 10 sentences come a few paragraphs down from last week’s snippet.

So, if I’m planning on keeping it as a novella, I should probably start to think about wrapping it up, I guess. Into the Sun was right around 30k. This is easier when I actually have a story planned out. But, that’s also what I like with these ones, figuring it out as I go. Anyway, here’s another 10 sentences, skipping over a paragraph after last week’s. […]
