Now onto the first week round-up, complete with non-spoilery snippets.

DAY ONE

Indoor plumbing had long been one of her favourite aspects of travelling through the Dragonlands, but the Sunlords had elevated it to a new level. Ready-heated water at the wave of a hand. Dragons truly were miraculous creatures.

DAY TWO

A chance to assist in an effort to bring down the arrogant swamp creature who had most probably sent him and Estenarven far below the Curse, intending it to end with their deaths? Hmm, let him think…

The poor woman. The poor, poor, deluded fool. Mastekh’s heart clenched tight in sympathy.

DAY FIVE

“Breakfast,” Mastekh announced, throwing the word out like a challenge, with no hint of bubbles or hesitation.

Estenarven smiled as he crossed the room to accept a steaming mug of honey-scented tea. “Thank you,” he murmured, kissing his lover on the cheek.

Cool skin heated beneath his lips and Mastekh’s colour returned with a hint of a green blush. “Oh.”

DAY SEVEN

“Overkill,” Jesken said, after Wellswen flicked a goose a little too hard and shot the wooden fox straight off the board and over the edge of the table.

“That’ll teach you to pounce so gleefully.”

“It won’t. I’ll be even more merciless next time and cow the rest of your gaggle into submission.”

“Geese never submit.”

“And foxes never die.” Jesken held up her hand and Gharrik placed the recovered fox into her palm. “Best of three?”

“Of course.” They reset the board and hunched over it in intense silence once more.

(They’re playing Fox and Geese, btw, so no actual fake geese were harmed by Wellswen’s inability to lose with grace.)

So far, I think it’s going rather well :D

Daily updates can be found (open to all) on Patreon. Hopefully by the next update I’ll have finished this book and be moving onto the next one.

But enough of me, how are the rest of you doing? If you’re doing NaNo too I hope it’s going as well as mine and that you’re comfortably on track.

And to all, NaNo writers or not, Merry Wednesday!
