I was invited by author Vashti Quiroz-Vega to participate in the ‘Work-In-Progress Blog Challenge,’ and I accepted. Vashti is an avid blogger, and author of The Basement, a suspense / thriller for young adults.
It’s an exciting one – the rules are to post the first line from each of the first three chapters in my work-in-process (WIP), and select four other writers to do the same.
I’ve chosen to take lines from Lucy’s Story: The End of the World for this challenge. It’s in its first draft now, and not many people know what happens in this one. It’s the direct sequel to The Caretaker of Imagination, which is in revision stages now, and will (hopefully) be published in December. Special thanks to Paul Taylor at AfterWork Productions for feeding me the apocalypse story idea.
She was too old to believe in them now, but Lucy still loved listening to her uncle’s stories.
‘The End of the World’ was all Lucy had time to write before her mum rudely interrupted, stared pointedly at the clock on the wall, and informed Lucy it was well past her bedtime.
The tears choked out of her in spluttering sobs, turning into steam the instant they hit the earth below her.
Could they mean her?
I’m tagging the following writers, and can’t wait to see their chapter lines!
