But more seriously, this is a little blog hop baby courtesy of the ever-wonderful K at Zook Book Nook. Click here to participate. And here are the details:
Writers Link Up Your Hooks and Start Commenting!
Post a link to your blog through the Hooked on Hooks linky that is available at the end of this post. To do so, just add type the name of your blog and the URL for the specific post in the box below!
The only requirement is to stop by at least three other campaigners blogs to give them comments about their hooks. The WIP may be any piece of writing (short story, essay, fiction, children's book, MG, YA, chic lit, fantasy, article, poetry, blog post, etc) that you are currently working on. The first few sentences (your hook) may be for the beginning of your WIP, the beginning of a prologue or chapter or sequel. If you write poetry, it may be the first few stanzas. You may share one or two hooks on your blog, because you're more likely to get feedback on one or two rather than several.
This event is made possible through Rach Writes Third Writers' Platform-Building Campaign!!
Here's my Hook for my work in progress, EVERVEIL, a YA Paranormal
I didn’t know how to play well with others-- still don’t, honestly-- but Vivvie seemed happy with me, just as I was. She left me at summer’s end, bright pink hair draped over my arm as I held her close. She whispered a strained goodbye with her last breath. As her chest fell for the last time, I finally told her that I didn’t want to be her best “guy” friend anymore, that I loved her. Like the emergency crews that arrived five minutes later, I was too late. That made losing her even worse. But we’re both just sixteen…and she wasn’t supposed to die.
