Okay, it's not that horrible. In fact, this challenge looks quite fun. All I have to do is find the word look in my current WIP and post the paragraphs.
I was a little worried at first. I'm not far on my shiny new idea (currently labeled SquidBoy. I need to figure out a title for this bugger.) Did I even use the word look yet? Yes, I did! A lot more than I thought, in fact. The snippet is from the prologue where I sink a fishing ship and kill everyone.
Should I be worried I start a lot of stories with death?
William slowly turned towards Corbin. His blue eyes were wide with fear and his knuckles were white from his grip on the steering wheel. The hulking mass of man that captained Summer’s Song looked reduced to a trembling five year old. A flash of lightening cut sharp shadows across his face. “The power’s out. She’s dead in the water. We’re gonna die.”
The hoarse whisper took Corbin back a moment. He shook himself and then did something he never expected to do: strike his captain. William barely reacted to the smack. Corbin grabbed him and gave him a hard shake. “Snap out of it, Capt’n. This isn’t Song’s first rodeo or yours. Now, man up. We can get through this.”
It's unedited and I plan on pumping a friend for info on fishing vessels and Alaska to make sure I have correct terms. Like all good challenges I am forced to pass this burden on to five other people. I'm gonna go for people I haven't tormented before.
