The rules are: Count up the 'LOOK's in your current WIPs and choose your favorite three. Then post the paragraphs around the word.
I decided to use the un-edited version of Nightmare Ever After, the sequel to Once Upon a December Nightmare. According to "find," I have 45 looks in it out of 24,000+ words. Not too bad. I'm sure a few or more will be cut.
So here are my favorite three:
1. The pungent reek of death burned FBI Special Agent Tim O’Conner’s nostrils. His fingers twitch to cover his nose, but he wouldn’t dream of looking disturbed by a corpse, especially in front of the local yokels. Off to his right, a green-faced deputy barfed into a Wal-mart bag. Tim swallowed hard and breathed shallowly through his mouth.
2. “I know.” His voice was soft, low, a gentle caress that made her look back at him. “Do you mind if I show you something, Cassandra?”
3. “Just a little jumpy, I suppose.” She chuckled and shifted away from him. Those too blue eyes lingered on hers. Why hadn’t she worn some jeans? She felt too exposed under his gaze. Her tongue dampened her lips as she noticed he’d taken his jacket off. He looked like he worked out, even though he was tall and slender. She liked how he wore his gun with the shoulder holster, like Booth from Bones. Since The X-Files, she’d always had a thing for FBI men.
Now, I'm supposed to tag people, but I
am lazy hate choosing people, so if you'd like to be tag, then consider yourself tagged.
