Hi everyone *waves*.

It’s been a while. I started writing a story back in July and thought I could start posting some snippets of it up following this last round of maintenance.

The story is called “A Good Day to Die”, and is about an ex-cyborg (James Hamilton) and a space navy captain (Shona).  So here’s my first snippet from this WIP.

Today looked like a good day to die.

It couldn’t be more perfect. Even the weather was playing the game. The day had started out with dark clouds on the horizon. The scent of rain had wafted in on the chilling breeze. By mid-morning the dark clouds had covered the whole sky and a lightening show was in full swing.

So there you go.

Please go and have a look at the snippets submitted by other participating authors, and thank you for dropping by.

    Dark clouds, the threat of rain, lightning – yep, all setting the mood. I’m assuming from the title that this is the first few lines – I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.

    Very nice snippet…great set up. Who doesn’t like lightning shows (aside from those of us who have a lot of electronics around… 😀 )?
