Summary Sunday


Most of this week's writing was devoted to the first direct encounter between my hero, Robert, and the Earl of Gunthar (yes, from Loyalty's Web). I decided to write the scene from Gunthar's POV. It's always fun for me to get inside another character's head and see how he or she views my hero. :-)

Monday - Wednesday's sentences are all from Gunthar's POV. Thursday and Friday began a new chapter. No, Gunthar is not the one with the sausage fingers. Is he the one Rob is glaring at on Friday? You'll have to wait until I finish the book to find out. ;-)

These are all from The Lady and the Minstrel.

Monday: It passed briefly through his mind that Peter would have been near an age with the minstrel, had his son survived that curst Crusade.

Tuesday: “I do not know what you are concealing from me, and I will not tolerate any further impertinence from you, but that this still beats—” he thumped a fist to his heart— “I will not forget.”

Wednesday: Like the discipline in Robert’s eyes, his tone this time betrayed no mockery or scorn. Yet Gunthar felt somehow accused, judged, then simply dismissed, as though saying anything more would be a waste of the minstrel’s breath.

Thursday: “My fingers feel like they turn into sausages whenever I pick up a pen.”

Friday: Robert glared at him, bristling at the hated epithet flung at villeins by their lords.

Love your writing, Joyce! When I read your sentences it reminds me of why I love historical fiction.
