Weekend Writing Warriors #6 – Revenant (Part 45)

It was my plan to keep writing this story offline once Six Sentence Sunday ended earlier this year, but the truth is it just wasn’t getting done. So, in order to actually make progress, Revenant is back. And with 8 sentences per week it should move along at little faster than it did in the previous format.

For those of you who haven’t seen this story before you can catch up on everything that’s happened to our heroes, Ryan and Kassandra, as they prepare to step onto a zombie filled earth in search for the cure to the terrible disease that has brought humanity to the edge of extinction. All you need to do is follow this link.


    The pair stepped onto the roof of the pharamacogenetic research centre where, more than a century ago, Kassandra and her team developed the genetic modifications that so devastated humanity. The research centre consisted of a single building, arranged in a star shape with each of its seven three storey arms connected to a five storey hub beneath their feet. The roof afforded them a wonderful view over the now overgrown grounds and out to the city beyond.
    Ryan braced the rifle on his shoulder and moved to the side, all the while scanning the sight line for any sign of movement. Kassandra, steel bar in hand, jogged along beside him in silence.
    As soon as he was certain the roof was clear, he signalled to the pilot who immediately lifted off. With luck, they’d be back in a few hours with the samples Kassandra needed.
    The complete lack of any noise was eerie.

Weekend Writing Warriors #5

Another week has flashed by. I can’t believe that we’re midway through March already, this year just seems to be zipping past. In this post I am going to share 8 sentences from a story that started life as a 600 word piece that my daughter wrote. Her words formed the basis for chapter 1 and the rest of the story evolved at the Story Time site via the readers votes at the end of each chapter.

It’s aimed at a teen audience which is a bit different to some of the snippets shared on this list which definitely get the blood pumping. The finished story TK Thirteen is now available on amazon.

This snippet is the moment that Tamara Kennedy, hence TK, is introduced to the gadget filled world of the Teen Intelligence Agency.


    “Your country needs you, Tamara.”
    My what? I turned around again, trying to figure out where the speaker might be. “I think you have me confused with someone else.”
    “No, Tamara,” the deep voice boomed, “it is you we need.”
    “Okay, this has been fun and everything, but I think I’ll be leaving now.” I started walking toward the door.
    “If you want to save Kaylee, you will listen to me.”

Weekend Writing Warriors #4

Hello all and welcome to my fourth weekend writing warriors post. This week I am returning to a short story I wrote as part of the Fantasy Faction short story anthology competition. Sadly my work didn’t make it in to the book but I still had fun writing it. I shared the opening six sentences of this story a few weeks back as part of Skye Warren’s Sunday Six, you can read those by clicking here, and this week’s 8 sentences will follow on soon after that previous post left off.


    Her head felt sticky and she pulled her hand away to reveal blood. Gently she prodded the wound. It didn’t feel like her skull was cracked.
    She bent over to tear a strip of cloth from her shirt and winced from a sharp, stabbing, pain at her side, possibly from a cracked rib or two. Stupidly, she took a deep breath to assess the damage. The smoke filled air entering her lungs triggered a coughing fit that almost caused her to black out. She froze, waiting for the pain to subside before moving again.
    “Idiot!” Truly she wasn’t thinking clearly.

Weekend Writing Warriors #3

Once again a big thank you to everyone who stopped by last week and for all those you left comments… you rock.

This week I am returning to the story of Kira and Justin who had been stolen by thugs in the employ of Talia (the blonde monster in the snippet below). Talia takes them to the person who hired her…


    “Why did you bring us here?” Kira said, her voice shrill.
    The woman straightened, tears running down her face as she looked at them. “I need you by my side.”
    “What kind of mother hires violent thugs to steal her own kids?”
    She lowered her eyes at that. “I need you both here while –”
    “That blonde monster said something about a launch. Is the station in danger? Is Dad in danger?”


Apologies for going over the sentence count, I’ll be sure it never happens again. I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution to this week’s list, and thanks for stopping by.
