Weekend Writing Warriors #2!

Helloooooooo, my dears! Here we are, back again for another Weekend Writing Warriors! Hope you all survived the avalanche of snow. We got over two feet in my neck of the woods. I decided to wait for it to melt before leaving the house, but then I realized that it takes a freaking long time for 28 inches of snow to melt. So I made a snow fort instead. :D 

Last week I shared an excerpt from The Cold War. It's very fitting for this time of year. Here's the next eight sentences!

The two ships' commanders communicated by sound waves.

T minus one minute.”

Mucosa’s troops prepared to enter through the right channel—a last-second strategy and a bold one at that. It was the road less traveled. Unpredictable and dangerous. Olfacto’s nose twitched, a telltale sign that he sensed trouble, but he remained stoic, knowing it was futile to argue with his headstrong counterpart.

T minus thirty seconds.”

“Stand your ground!” Olfacto encouraged.


I've been making some changes to this story as I go along. I plan on entering it into a contest. So please feel free to make suggestions. And while you're here, take a minute and enter my first ever blog hop contest! Click me! Wishing you all a spectacular Sunday! :)
