What?? Two posts in two days? That's crazy! Did the earth start rotating backward or something??
Anyway... Earlier this month, C.M. Brown
tagged me in the 'You've Got The Look' meme. This meme has been going
around the blogosphere for a while now so you're probably all very
familiar with it but, in case you're not, here are the rules:
Participants are asked to do the following:
— Go to your current WIP
— Hunt down the word 'look'
— Post the surrounding paragraphs
— Tag five other people
and today my excerpt comes from Second Nature
“Where’s Dana?” James said finally.
Faolan was surprised by the question. He knew the subject of Dana’s
whereabouts would be inevitable but he hadn’t thought that, at that
particular moment, Dana’s would be the first name off James’s lips.
Faolan looked to his right where, leaning against the wall, was Dana’s
“Dana’s gone,” Faolan said.
“What does that mean?” James asked, bringing up his head to look at him.
“It means he’s not here,” Faolan said.
“Where did he go?”
“I don’t know,” Faolan said. “Neither do I care. He’s not my concern.”
“He should be,” James said. “He should be here. He should be the one doing this.”
Faolan had thought the same at first. He had even said as much to Dana
as he rousted the rebel leader from the homestead. But meeting Cate,
being in that room with her even for that short amount of time, had
convinced him otherwise. Now, somehow, he thought there was no one
better suited for this task than James.
“No,” Faolan said. “He shouldn’t be.”
And now comes the part where I am supposed to tag five other people
but I never do that part. As always, I invite you to tag yourself.
Just make sure to let me know you do it so I can be sure to check out
That's going to do it for me today as I have a shift at The Store.
Thanks to C.M. Brown for including me in this meme and thanks to my
readers for stopping by... it's always appreciated!
