The Great Sword of Ages

Yo! Well done!
Congrats NaNo'ers! This is about as close to the victory date as you can come. Hope you all got in some fantastic writing time this month.

This'll be the last short post for my November series. We'll be back to blog normality next week, and we've got a lot of fun catching up to do. Not to mention a certain wily ninja to fete. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, here's one of my favorite sources for no-holds-barred editing advice for those NaNo novels that need a little love. And just an all-around awesome excerpt from Molly Cochran and Warren Murphy. If you guys like the Arthur legend in any way, give this one a try.

Resource: Miss Snark’s Crap-o-meters

Inspiration: Molly Cochran and Warren Murphy, The Forever King

 And then he saw it, too: Arthur standing tall, holding in his hand the great sword of ages.

He forgot Saladin and his horsemen, still as statues on the meadow. He forgot the blood that was pouring from his neck, and the useless objects that had once been his hands, and the pain that burned through his body like a living thing. He forgot that he was about to die.
                               “My king,” he whispered.


  1. That excerpt needs some unpacking and tweaking ^^;
