Hope your shots are up to date… I’ve been tagged by David Day in a game of author infection!
The rules are simple. Search your work in progress for the first use of “look”. Copy and paste that paragraph and the ones immediately before and after into a blog post. Then tag five other authors.
This is from the dog draft (rough rough) of the sequel to my finished fantasy novel Duty to the Crown. The sequel currently has the stunning name of Duty, Part II.
Dannel crossed to the door that separated the two rooms. He bent close to the fire and rubbed his gloved hands together. Golden light flickered across the silver embroidery stitched into black leather. Silver. The casual richness of every item still made Peradon’s breath catch. Thank goodness Dannel’s focus was on the fire. Peradon cleared his throat. “My lord?”
Dannel straightened and stepped away from the fireplace. “Well now, you look about as irritated as I feel.”
Peradon schooled his expression. “My apologies.” How irritated did he look?
Off to tag some writers…
Ha ha! Clever! Liked the play of external and internal dialog.
Thanks for tagging me.
