The Look Challenge

What’s the first use of the word “look” in your WIP? I’m taking up this challenge from Amy Raby, whose paragraph is here. My paragraph is from Worlds Apart, since that’s the WIP I had open when I saw Amy’s challenge. Worlds Apart is paranormal romance, about a human woman who falls in love with a man who is a werewolf.

Tina’s lips curled in response to the raucous laughter this provoked, and she gave the man a thorough look. He was not heart-stoppingly handsome, but he was cute, in a scruffy kind of way. Straight brown hair hung over his forehead, and brushed his collar in back. His eyes were an interesting golden-brown, his face a bit craggy, as if his skin had a story to tell. Those full lips were downright inviting. His body was trim, almost too skinny. She figured he was thirty… maybe thirty-five. She crossed her arms. “All right. But you have to play me a second time. Double ante.”

Now it’s your turn!

1. Find the first occurrence of the word “look” in your WIP, and post the surrounding paragraph.
2. Tag others to do the same. Like Amy, I’m leaving this open to whoever wants to to do it.

Feel free to post it on your blog or here in the comments.

  1. Lovely paragraph! A cool thing about this challenge is that what comes up is typically description (often character description), and it’s nice to read how different authors handle description of people.
