So I’m doing something very different (and very terrifying) today: I’m going to share an excerpt of what I’m working on!!
I’ve talked about writing in general, how Heroes influenced this book, and the music that I listen to when I work (and if you’re really dying to know more, you can find my Pinterest board here), but I’ve never really discussed any real details… until now! It’s a short excerpt, only about a 100 words, but you’ll get to learn the name of one of my main characters and as well as about a pretty important moment in his life. General disclaimer: this is still a work in progress, so these lines may be edited or even cut out completely. Thanks to the wonderful Maddy for the nomination. Hope you enjoy!
Guidelines for the 7/7/7 challenge:
- Go to page 7 of your WIP (Work in Progress)
- Scroll down to line 7
- Share the next 7 sentences in a blog post.
- After the excerpt tag 7 other writers (or however many you’re able to) to continue the challenge.
From my current WIP – Untitled Scifi
In this scene, the main character, Porter, is watching an interview of himself that was conducted several weeks earlier when he saved a young girl’s life.
The Porter on the screen ducked his head and smiled politely, rubbing the haptic tattoo on his neck. Porter also instinctively reached up, running his fingers over the raised contours of the pattern etched on his skin. Even then, he’d hated the attention. He’d only done the interview because the president’s public relations team had thought it would be a good idea— he could help boost President Camden’s ratings during an election year. He didn’t think the PR department appreciated the irony of how it had actually turned out.
“So, what were you thinking when you ran in and saved that little girl? What was going through your mind?”
