Rhonda Laurel tagged me for a WIP blog hop so here goes:
The game is to find the word “look” in your current work in progress, and post an excerpt from that section of the manuscript. I had a bit of a look and I think the most fun is a bit from On A Lee Shore:
“If the shoes hurt why are you wearing them?” Kit asked, moderating his pace. “They make you walk like an old Duchess with corns.”
Tristan snorted. “Fashion, dear boy. If one wants to do well at work it’s best to look as though one has no financial worries. As long as they all think I’m being very good at what I do on a whim they’ll keep promoting me to try to pique my interest.”
“Bloody silly reason for promotion,” Kit growled and Tristan gave his arm an affectionate squeeze.
“Maybe you should try it?” he suggested. “You look like a Quaker. That’s not going to give them any faith in your fighting spirit, now, is it?”
Kit glanced at Tristan’s tightly curled wig, his exquisitely fitted coat, the riot of embroidery on his waistcoat, those ridiculous shoes whose heels brought Tristan up to equal Kit’s height. Kit own attire, mostly shades of sensible hard wearing brown including his own naturally curly hair, did seem penny-pinched in comparison.
I’m supposed to tag people sooooooo – hmmm – look I’ll add some later when I’ve had a chance to fnd people who haven’t already done it. 🙂
