WIP Wednesday!
« on: June 07, 2017, 11:50:16 AM »
I'm stealing this from a Facebook group @Sheepy-Pie and I are members of and I'm slightly modifying it.

Go to the 10th page of your WIP (doesnt matter of its handwritten in a notebook, type in Word or Scriver etc) and post the first full complete sentence.

This one is mine:
Quote
Arris shifted uncomfortably as he leaned up against the wall of the cell, his irons jingling as he moved.

Technically it's from a scene that I plan on deleting 'cause it sucked and it wasn't even finished. :P So here's the real sentence:

Quote
The door to the entrance of the prison creaked open and Arris heard footsteps and some shuffling.

It's part of a dialog: Green's a good color for you.

That sounds so hopelessly mundane. LOL
All that is gold does not glitter

So this is a cool idea and I would like to post from all the WIP I have that are fantasy (I don't have 10 pages for all my fantasy WIP's), I hope you don't mind.

Dragon Keeper: The Journey Begins (Book One):
“If you keep pacing like that you’ll wear a hole in the ground,” Aymeric snapped at Japp out of frustration, looking back at him.

The Silent Hand: Vampire Hunter Chronicles- A Family Legacy Uncovered (Book One):
For some reason, the road seemed to keep getting longer and longer like we weren’t making any progress.

The Chronicles Of Maddox Riddell: Becoming Phoenix Fire (Book One):
Maddox was pretty sure that Rose and Max had something to do with it but he couldn’t prove it.

10th page? Think you should have chosen smaller. I haven't got 10 pages of my wip atm. So instead I have picked a line from my second chapter

Quote
My father walked in front with Celeste trailing so close she could be his shadow.

First WIP, it's dialogue.
Quote
Anything else you need me to get, or should I head back to the chemical lab?

Second WIP:
Quote
He quickly looked up from his feet with a shocked expression, some frozen grass visible where he'd been absently scraping the snow off them while the girls had their touching moment.

Had to fiddle a bit with Scriveners compile-feature to find where page 10 in my draft ist. First full sentence is rather unspectacular:
Quote
The man nearly tripped.
Title: Tigerhall (WIP)

"I found this in a corset I was wearing."

XD Of course it had to be THAT line.

"The puzzle kept twisting in on itself"

From "The Window Man" - First and second drafts written, currently undergoing extensive editing. 
The wind turns green and the Goddess smiles.  Everything will be the right size.

"Euthagius turned his head, thinking that he had heard something"

From "Carrying a Torch" - first draft almost complete.
