Peep Show of Necromancer: The Awakening

Nat RussoFantasy, Necromancer, Writing 8 Comments

Melanie passed the “Peep Show Challenge” over to me earlier this morning, and it sounds like a blast!

Here are the rules:

  1. Go to the 77th page of your work-in-progress.
  2. Count down 7 lines.
  3. Share the 7 lines that follow.
So here we go! 

It turns out that my 7 lines are all dialogue. Speaker 1 is a master necromancer…speaker 2 is a new initiate. They recently met under rather bizarre circumstances, and they’re having…a difficult time getting along. [I apologize for the extra spacing between dialog lines. I’m fighting with formatting in my text editor.]

So here it is…a brief look into Necromancer Awakening, my bestselling debut fantasy novel. 

“You’re a fighter, I’ll give you that.. Few would speak to me as you do. You remind me of my brother.”
“See, I’m not all that bad.”
“The difference, boy, is that my brother has the power to get himself out of the trouble his mouth causes.”
“You are either brave beyond justification, or ignorant beyond explanation. Perhaps both…time will tell. For now, keep walking.”

And now to pass the torch!


Looking forward to seeing what you all are up to! 😉

    1. Exactly. I suppose life requires a little of both on occasion. Most of the ignorant things I’ve done in my life began with the words “Hey Y’all, watch this!”
