Another game of “Tag, you’re it” is circulating again. This time I have been tagged by Nancy Williams. The requirement is to copy one or several paragraphs from your current manuscript with the word 'look' in it and then Tag someone else. This excerpt is from my first draft, so I know that I have to change some things. Do you have any suggestions for replacing the word LOOK in the following paragraph?
Setting: My MC Liv meets Loki for the first time
“You can make this easy and just give me the necklace. I know you found it…” On the verge of tears he pulled off a chunk of his hair and squawked, “Just look at what’s happening to me!” He then peeled away a small part of his face and exposed an open sore that oozed with puss. Slowly he composed himself and continued, “My own daughter Hel did this to me, and you my scared little rabbit are going to help me fix it. All I need is that necklace and I can get rid of this wretched curse!” Loki suddenly realized that Liv was just standing there with a stupid confused look on her face. He had expected her to react by now, maybe even change into something a bit more fearful than this human thing. He backed away and studied her closely, and then tilting his head to the side he said, “You don’t know what you are, do you?”
