Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!
This weekend, I’m continuing a scene from my latest release, Cosmic Wars, Book 5 of the Grand Masters’ Galaxy. The Griffins, Violet, Athanor, and their son, Varan, are at home when their dragon friends visit with their baby, Istros.

The final line was: The adult dragons watched in silence as the children played.
[Apologies for minor misuse of grammar to fit in 8-10 sentences.]
In a voice like silver bells, Istrelle sang eloquently, “These Vrons have earned our friendship; Violet saved your life and brought us together. We cannot allow harm to befall them; friends are worth more than one or two loose scales.” She curled her slender neck around the Black Dragon’s shoulders.
Snorting in sudden amusement, Ythris croaked, “Crafty as ever, Zyzost Griffin; you play with our sons to claw us into unity.”
“No craft is needed,” Athanor remarked, “Violet can tell you how often I entertain Varan.”
“It’s true;” Violet patted his bent back and chuckled; “Athanor spends his leisure hours romping with our son.”
Stretching to his full height, and towering above the Grand Master, Ythris croaked, “When you next visit my eyrie, I’ll give you a choice of shed scales, mine and Istrelle’s.”
His expression serious, Athanor said, “By Ishtare’s favor, we’ll visit soon. The Nulls might strike at any time.”
