Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories.
Okay, I’m biting the bullet and offering a snippet from my WIP. It’s at 53k words and I’m editing. Among other things, I have to deal with killing off one minor character and rewriting him out of later scenes. This story has several deaths.
Current Tag line: What alien creatures lurk under the ice crust of Europa?
See NASA's artist's concept of the setting.
Here is the beginning of my story. It’s not a final version and any suggestions will be especially appreciated. [Note, slightly irregular punctuation to fit.]
The Solar Spirit shuddered, slamming Nikki onto the steel floor of the passage.
Alarms wailed; red lights flashed warnings.
Biting back a scream, Nikki scrambled onto her feet. A second jolt tipped the floor into an awkward angle. Her boots lifted from the tilted floor and she spun slowly in midair. Styx; the ship’s artificial gravity had failed. What next? No life support? She groaned inwardly; what blasted bad timing. The Solar Spirit had begun decelerating and she had expected to reach Europa in less than two days.
