I was tagged by the lovely Nicki Elson for the WIP Blog Tour. And since it’s been a bit since I last posted anything about my writing, I figured this was as a good time as any to let you guys know a bit about Fate’s Awakening, my WIP. Also, in case you don’t know, WIP stands for “work in progress”. Yes, I still count FA as a WIP, because it’s not published, and, in fact, is being critiqued mercilessly by Shelley Greene at this time.
The rules of the to:
1) Link back to the person who tagged you. That would be Nicki Elson, so check out her blog here.
Okay, so far so good.
2) Write a little about and give the first sentences of the first 3 chapters of a WIP.
Here’s the blurb I’ve tentatively settled on for Fate’s Awakening.
Jack Harris’s reluctance to find The One has put his life in danger with the Fates. They send a young goddess to convince Jack that he needs to search his heart or he’s going to lose his only chance at happiness. After the goddess gives him less than a month to get his act together, Jack realizes that his soul mate is his long-time roommate and best friend, Andrew Kelly. Problem is, Andy’s in a relationship with a woman, and Jack can’t quite figure out where they stand. Will the goddess’s divine intervention be enough to help Jack? Or will the Fates have to cut the tangled thread of his life when the deadline comes?
Intrigued? I hope so.
And here are the first sentences from the first 3 chapters of Fate’s Awakening…four, actually, because I did a prologue. So you guys get a bonus sentence! Woo hoo!
Prologue: “The Three have requested your immediate presence.”
Chapter 1: “Your place or mine?”
Chapter 2: Insistent banging roused me from a deep sleep.
Chapter 3: Just after eight-thirty, my cab pulled up in front of the bar.
And finally, rule 3: Tag 4 more writers to see what they’re up to!
I can’t wait to see what they’re up to!
