It’s time for Weekend Writing Warriors!
Every Sunday, a clutch of writers post upon their blogs 8-sentence snippets from their Writing Works in Progress.
There is much reading, commenting, sharing and getting to know one another. Also great writing. Click on the red square with the white feather and sword to see the list of blogs and perhaps add your blog’s name and join us in the fun. If you are, like me, a person who needs deadlines and feedback, this really helps.
Friar Adam of Bremen sat with his back against a large tree, smoothed his brown habit over his knees and watched sweating masons lay the bricks to repair some worrisome damage to St. Vitus church. He saw the new architect making the 4-minute hike up from the River Wesser, rose and brushed off some grass. He had never met Gundulf of Rochester and was looking forward to the meeting.
“I bring greetings from Lanfranc,” Gundulf said, offering his historian host a red quill and a bottle of fine ink.
“And I return the greetings from Archbishop Adelbert,” Adam said, offering the customary pitcher of water. “How was your journey? We are all grateful for your generous offer of help.”
“We had good weather down the Thames and into the Sea, and sailing down the Wesser to here was beautiful.”
“I am eager to hear all about your work in England over dinner and then I will show you our the problems with the church foundation.”
