Lucky 7- Sneak Peek of Tamrin
Go to page 77 of your current WiP.
Go to line 7.
Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
Tag 7 other sadists, I mean writers.
So, here's your sneak peak at my WIP, Tamrin. To be fair, this bit is actually near the end...Cause I write the beginning and end of my books before I write the middle. -.-; And it's a pinch more than seven...Cause I couldn't resist showing just how horrible that little paper is. Does that make me a cheater?
Suspicious, I bring my narrowed eyes back to her.
She’s still rummaging through her purse, as though the tiny thing were Mary Poppins’ carpet bag. “Oh,” she breathes in annoyance. “I know it’s in here somewhere. I worked so hard on it!”
She whips her hand out. "Ah!" In her thin, silk wrapped fingers she’s holding a pale slip of folded paper. Holding it between her fore and middle fingers, she extends her hand toward me. “Here you are.”
Unease burns high in my stomach. My next breath comes hard, as if someone is squeezing my lungs. My heart hitches, starts beating wildly, sending dizzying adrenaline throughout every vein in my body. Suddenly I’m sweating and shaking, too afraid to move or blink.
This is it.
