One of our legacy participants and mentors, Maegan Go, has hit her 15,000 word mark and received the coveted Silver Pen badge. Congratulations Maegan! Read from her NaNoWriMo project, Three of Swords, below, and let her know what you think!
Three of Swords
Against all odds, three orphans journey to a mythical city of legends in an attempt to buy back the freedom they’ve always sought.
In one swift motion, Kian had pinned the guard against the gate. The guard’s head banged painfully against the metal and the sound reverberated down both ends of the hall. Kian heard Jo curse behind him, but he didn’t care. He leaned forward and said, “Do you know why I’m so keen to find out everything about this mage? He used one of your prisoners as leverage, used them to try to get me to do his bidding. He convinced the poor man that he had a chance to live when there was none to be had.” Kian put his lips to the guard’s ear and whispered, “And hope doesn’t taste as good as fear does.”
Congrats again, Maegan. So glad to have you back this year <3
