This break in my hiatus (see, I told you I’d still be posting) comes to you from Tara and Heather. They’ve put together a blog hop to celebrate the things that give us thrills (you know, like checking your inbox when there could be a really important response in it). Specifically, both Tara and Heather are publishing books, and it’s thrilling to get to the end of the journey (or at least, I suspect it would be thrilling).
To peel back the wraps on my writing process, I often find myself wondering “What would be the single biggest thing that could happen here?” No, really, when I get bored in a manuscript, I have exactly two responses: Start the Armageddon Clock, or blow something really important up. If I can do them both at the same time, that is my favorite (stuck in space with a faulty engine, I think it’s time to start venting the O2; In the middle of the ocean with giant monsters? Definitely time to sink the boat). So my entry to the Thrill of it All blog fest is a example from my current Query Bait: KNIGHT FALL (formerly DEAD STAR).
If the only thing they took seriously was force, then I was going to melt a hole right to the center of this planet if it killed me. Maybe things would be easier for the next girl.
Kestrel’s meaty hand settled on my shoulder, and he pointed up at the sky, blocking my view of Raijin. My gaze followed his pointing arm, and I saw it.
The sun flickered like a candle.
Then it went out.
It should almost have a Dun! Dun! Duuuuuhn! right after it. Alright everyone, get your thrills on, jump on the linky, and share.
