Ok, so....I'm a bad, bad blogger.
*Jen dons ginormous, black, 10-gallon hat.*
I know that. I'm a busy cowgirl with two small kids and poor impulse control (Hello, Twitter--I've totally got you in my sights.)
I've been hit (kapow--ouch! That stings!) with other blog challenges lately and felt absolutely paralyzed. Those haven't seen high noon yet. I'm still bellyaching at the bar. No excuses. Just solid truth. It's that kind of rodeo around here.
When fellow writing-cowpoke A.K. Anderson issued the Peep Show Challenge, however, that didn't sound quite so much like wayward cat-herding. It sounded fun and oh-so-doable. I'll get up on that horse. (My riding skills are questionable, though, so stand back.)
(Here I am peeping back at you. (That moody purple hair is just always in the way.) "They" say pictures are so important in blog posts. I sincerely doubt "they" meant un-made-up pics of authorial-wanna-be-housewives, but ok, I'll oblige, thank you kindly.)
THE CHALLENGE ACCEPTED: Land on page 77 of your Work In Progress and count down 7 lines. Cut and paste the next 7 lines as a "peep-show" on your blog. Then, saunter off, tag some more bloggers, and rope them into revealing tantalizing bits of their WIP's. Oh, it's a showdown, all right. Right?
Here's the 77-7-7 from FLUENCY:
Are you saying the other astronauts are in mortal danger?”
That's it. Just a little peep. Sorry, no curvy, petticoated harlots showing leg in this excerpt. Maybe next time.
FLUENCY, a sexy, romantic, contemporary, science fiction odyssey, is currently at 68,000 words. I swear on my ma that word count was higher just a few days ago, but I've been making some revisions, thanks to my posse (ahem, critique group). Been culling the word-herd. You know.
Now, to tend to that itchy trigger finger...I hereby brand:
@WendyHammer13 of the blog The Sacred Cheese
@bstenger of the blog ...Typing.......As Fast......As I can
with the Peep Show Challenge. That's all I got for now. I tip my hat to ya'all. *wink*
