Weekend Writing Warriors


Time for the Weekend Writing Warriors!



For the next couple months, I'm highlighting sentences from my Boys of the Zodiac novel, the m/m action/adventure erotic romance, Aries: Riddle Me Wicked. Last week, Ian and Lucas were working to get out of the cavern they were being held captive in. I've jumped ahead some, after they've managed to get to safety, and they finally have time to discuss why the men were after Ian, as well as what Lucas offers...

“...Or what function I need to serve.”

“That’s what we’re going to do right now.” Holding out the binder, he waited for Ian to take it before settling on the opposite bed. “Sultis wanted you because of your language skills. You’re one of the best translators of obscure Classical texts out there.”

“And what are you so skilled at that they can’t do without you?”

Lucas grinned and leaned back on his hands. “I find order in chaos.”

Oh, I love that last line. I find order in chaos. Can you you send him to my best friend's house and help order her chaos? But I digress. I'm intrigued and I love the concept of men of the zodiac. Splendid 8.

Great line!

Finding order in chaos? Hmm, that could cover quite a range of possibilities.

Love the last line because I like to make order out of chaos too.

Is he available to work on my office, by any chance?? Lovely line, lots of possibilities!

His attitude suggests he creates more chaos than finds order. I like him already. Great snippet, Vivien. :)
