Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
I hope you enjoy this post. If I’m allowed to have a favorite part of the book, it’s the part where our fearless heroes stumble upon Charcoal Ridge—and dragons. As this is their first exposure to dragons (let alone a sanctuary) they’re certainly in for a . . . treat.
A lot of things met the senses as soon as the three entered Berg’s dragon sanctuary. The walls were covered in thick scrapes and dung and straw lined the loft and sprinkled to the ground with every intense shaking. To Ilsi, it looked a large, dangerous chicken coop. Many of the younger creatures were crawling on the floors, up the posts or against the walls and the adolescents were flying or wrestling with their siblings.
The disgust came more from the smell. They could tell that the floors were as well-kept as Berg could manage, but not enough breeze or clean water could clear out the natural smells. It definitely reeked like dung and urine, but it deepened and worsened with the smell of fresh raw meat that was heaped into a long trough that lined all the way around the structure.
It was a madhouse and Berg seemed content being its keeper.
It’s been a while that I could get through a snippet without dialog, huh? Dialog is my absolute favorite. Check out other snippets here. And comment below if you’ve got a snippet to share as well!
