Hey, LOOK! It’s another fun challenge…
Thank you, L.J. Kentowski for tagging me in this challenge. Don’t know L.J.? She’s the author of Guardian of Fate, an urban fantasy novel that I read and personally loved. Definitely check it out and do it soon because she’s getting ready to release the next book in the series, which proves to be just as hard to put down as the first!
Now, the rules of the challenge are as follows:
* Find the first usage of the word “look” in your WIP and post the surrounding paragraph into your blog.
* Tag as many people as you want to take part in the challenge with you
Easy as pie, right? So, let’s get to it. Here is the first instance of “look” that I could find in my WIP Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings.
He lit a cigarette and gave her a sultry stare. He was still sitting in her bed, a sheet pulled just high enough to cover a perfect set of toned legs. His chiseled chest sprouted dark hair mingled with the occasional grey sprout that gave him an air of distinction. His dark Mediterranean skin echoed memories of pictures she’d seen in a magazine of gods. He was handsome; there was little doubt of that. He was more than handsome, he was drop dead gorgeous. Looking at him was enough to get her going again and if she wasn’t careful, she’d be back in bed and lost in erotic oblivion for the rest of the morning.
Yep, it’s our first glimpse of Dan in Chapter One. Sure didn’t take me long to take a good, long ‘look’ at him, did it? Can you blame me? 😉
