LOOK meme!

I don't usually post on Sundays but I have been tagged in the "Look" Meme a couple of times, so I thought I ought to get my post done!  Thanks to Christine Rains and Clare Dugmore for the tags!


 The rules of the challenge involve me searching my work in progress for the first usage of the word “look,” paste the surrounding paragraph into my blog, and tag as many people as possible. I am only going to tag five! :p

This excerpt comes from my latest WIP, an NA Contemporary Romance, loosely titled, "If I Let You Go."


 “What the hell happened to you?” she asked as I dropped my bag down and launched myself onto her sofa. “You don’t usually look like this when you know there’s partying to be done.”
Erica was already ready to go. She’d slipped into her favourite LBD and full make-up, and her blonde hair was straightened to perfection.

And I tag:

Nick Wilford
Annalisa Crawford
Leigh Covington
Morgan Shamy
Carrie Butler

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. I'm really curious as to how 'bad' your character must look to have Erica behaving like that. I did the same Meme on August 20 for my Camp Nanowrimo project Shade Me. Nice exerpt choice. It left me wondering and very interested in reading more.

  5. Thanks for the tag! I've not seen this meme yet. I also wonder what happened to the narrator. I'm on a break but was just checking on my favourite blogs (that's all!) I've got my WIP redraft open and "looked" is in the first paragraph. I'll post on it at some point. :)
