Nanowrimo 2014: Grave concern, an enemy on the prowl, and scene 5 of Where the Light Enters

The streets, now quiet, are about to be flooded with danger

The streets, now quiet, are about to be flooded with danger

I’m back to my usual writing pattern as of today and it feels great. I’ve missed my groove over the past few days. Here’s a glimpse of scene 5 of my novel. Jasper and Oliver meet to discuss what happens now that they know Cassandra has them in her sights. She is on the hunt and they have to play defense.

“Oliver, I’m every bit as surprised as you are,” said Jasper.

“No one’s seen her since…” Oliver’s voice stopped short as he paced in the rare book room of Stargrass.

“I know. It appears she’s been hard at work, rebuilding, all this time,” said Jasper

“Rebuilding what?” asked Oliver.

“Herself. And I suspect others, too. She’s a jumble of parts. Some human. Mostly mechanical.”

“Where’s she hiding, Jasper? And who’s helping her? She can’t be doing this alone.”
