The never to back down, martini lovin, SJ Maylee, has handed me a LOOK writing challenge and I’m up for it, maybe.
Here’s the details (which I get to share with five fabulous authors): Find the LOOKs in your current WIPs AND post the paragraphs around the word. Choose your favorite THREE, because everyone has to have at least three, in your WIP to post.
Best part is sharing the love with some of my favorite writers, they’re each worth checking out:
#1 “We’re here!” he called to the man’s retreating back.
The technician looked back, a smile spreading on his friendly face. He patted the soft case he carried. “Excellent. This should only take a few minutes.”
Paul held the door open and let the middle aged man precede him into the living room. “The TV’s over here.” A noise from the kitchen startled him. “I’ll leave you to it,” he told the man, distracted, and left him when he nodded and opened his case. He found Eran in the kitchen already dressed. Eran didn’t meet his gaze and Paul leaned against the doorframe as his lover concentrated on making the coffee.
#2 He glanced over on hearing a polite cough at the door, but wouldn’t let Eran go when he tried to step away.
The tech looked embarrassed. “Um…changed the cable box. Short in the wiring.”
“Let me get you a check.” Paul put his lips against Eran’s ear and whispered, “Stay right here.”
#3 Paul returned to the kitchen and looked at Eran where he leaned against the counter, arms crossed over his chest.
So beautiful. Eran’s ink black hair brushed his chin, framing a delicate face and enormous blue eyes holding an unexpected sorrow. Paul walked up to him and tugged the slim, strong body of the man he loved into his arms. He planted little kisses along Eran’s jawline. “Tell me what’s wrong, baby.”
