It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time again. This is my submission.

These are the next few lines to one of my (as yet untitled) works in progress. I have extended the sentence count to nine for this snippet.

  1. Sparse but vivid details. I don’t know what’s happening yet, but I know that being a fly on this wall…. is likely to get me killed in the decontamination process.

  2. Outstanding worldbuilding, Kim! I liked the futuristic/alien terminology, and the descriptions put me right into the scene. Nicely done!

    No post for me this week. Just making my rounds and seeing what’s new in the stories. Have a good week. 🙂
