The Look Challenge

The Look Challenge

Since there was no ‘Image’ associated with this Challenge, I thought I’d go ahead and toss up this ‘Fashionable’ Image of a Ninja ‘Looking’ on the Left… Hmm

Anyway, I’d Like to Thank Lorna over @ Lorna’s Voice for Issuing me this Challenge.

Here’s how she described the Challenge;

It’s for authors who are writing or who have written books and is a way to let others sneak a peek at their work. It’s called The Look Challenge. Here’s how it works. You search your manuscript for the word “look” and copy the surrounding paragraphs into a post to let other bloggers read. Then you tag five blogger/authors.


My Excerpts which come from My “I Died Once” Novella

I couldn’t decide which Excerpt to use out of these two, both being fairly short, I decided to do both.

The First: Chapter Five, Page 20;

With this, I mustered up some courage. “Did you ever love her?”

He didn’t reply, nor look my way for quite some time, until, “LOOK OUT!!” Suddenly, he hit the brakes and all seemed to slow down as he threw his great musket across the front of me and placed my hand on the wheel. I tucked my head towards him, and he took a shot. BLAM!! In one shot he took down what he called a white rhino. It fell to the ground with a THUMP!  “That thing would have knocked this vehicle over!” he gasped, then looked at me. “Yes, I loved her.”


The Second: Chapter 10, Page 42 ( A FLASHBACK Sequence);

Tears started to well up in my little eyes and it was like he sensed it, as he turned to look right at me. “Don’t even think about it, little princess, or by God, I will smack you.”

It was just then that my mother walked in. “Fred, why must you be so cruel to little Mady?” With this, Fred suddenly back handed my mother across the face, knocking her clear off her feet and to the floor. THUNK! I can still remember the sound of her hitting the floor.

“Don’t you ever talk to me like that, woman! You understand!”

My mother stayed down on the floor wiping blood off her mouth, and looked over to me. “Stay quiet now, Mady.”

And that’s what I did for the next twelve years, stayed quiet.


And Now I shall Issue This Challenge to some Writers that I know Have either ‘Written’, and/or are ‘Writing’ a Book. Or in some cases both. (I’m Tagging 4 Instead of 5)
