There was nothing to do but go on day to day. The men and the women were sharpening their swords. She had awakened once in the night to find the bed empty. She heard the sounds of metal scraping over stone. She listened to the blade passing slowly and steadily over the whetstone until the rhythmic noise lulled her back to sleep.

    • Yes, it’s a fantasy story I’ve been playing around with for a few months. I’ve tried setting it in our world and then moving the protagonist into an alternate world, but it wasn’t working for some reason. I switched to a pure fantasy setting and third person point of view. I like describing daily life and the way the various countries (queendoms) are governed. I can also get a little purple with my prose. The core plot stays the same. I’m just trying to find the best way to tell the story.
