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 week I’m continuing my new story. It will be book 3 in my series Atrapako on Eden. The settings are two remote planets: Eden, a terraformed planet with a colony of humans; and Vkani, an inhospitable planet with scaled human(oid) aliens. You can read about the planets and their inhabitants in my Blog Post HERE.
At the beginning of the story, Maya and her team are flying over the Deadlands in search of the ruins of an ancient civilization.
My tentative title is Trapped on Vkani. You can read last week’s snippet here – https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2019/01/hazardous-landing-snippet-from-wip-for.html
Maya froze in a flash of panic. Her first mission, the first she had led, might be her last. She fingered the bridge of the nose filters under her mask. If the air scrubber failed, she would need the filters to block the grit and toxic atmosphere. Her team must also be suffering the realization of their deadly peril. For the most part, they were handling the shock well.
In the co-pilot’s seat, Hong gasped. She glanced over her shoulder at Maya, dismay written in her eyes, although the mask muffled her face.
Seated next to Maya, their tech expert, Felix, cursed as he jabbed his fingers on his tablet.
I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.

a swearing, finger-jabbing tech expert is not a good sign.ReplyDelete
No. He has a problem.Delete
Curses from the tech expert is not a good sign. Interesting snippet!ReplyDelete
He will have more annoyances throughout the story.Delete
The initial shock is the hardest, but I hope they can work together to pull through.ReplyDelete
Most of them will survive.Delete
Wonderful scene description. They sure are in a pickle!ReplyDelete
Again, this snippet sort of echoes the book I'm snippeting from. So all I can say is, GREAT STORYLINE!ReplyDelete
I think we will deviate in chapter two.Delete
When the tech starts swearing, you know you're in trouble. Good snippet. Makes me ask all kinds of questions.ReplyDelete
They certainly are in trouble and tech won't get them out.Delete
Oh that's not good. Great snippet, Aurora.ReplyDelete
Great imagery of the dire situation. If the tech guy is worried, everyone should be too. :) I look forward to finding out how they get out of this.ReplyDelete
It's a long story!Delete
This does not sound good! Cant' wait to find out how (and if) they get out of this mess!ReplyDelete
It will be out of the frying pan into the fire.Delete
