That’s all I’m gonna say about that.
Now, what is Apocalypse Bunny? “Apocalypse Bunny” is the oh-so-affectionate name my beta bestowed upon my current WIP. It is, as you may have guessed, a YA Apocalyptic. Today’s Buccaneer Blogfest prompt is “the first paragraph of your novel or current WIP.” Now, readers, I must ask you: Can I trust you with this valuable work of art?
Excuse me while I snort.
I’m loving this story so far, but it does have a long way to go before I deem it completely acceptable. Ah, who am I kidding? I could edit and re-edit a manuscript for five years if I allowed myself to do so. All that aside, I’ll let you guys take a peek at what I’m working on now. But only because I love ya.
“‘Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire.’ If this Frost guy wasn’t so popular, I’d say he was completely off his rocker.”
I glanced over at Charlotte, a petite redhead who was curled up on one of the benches in the courtyard while working on our English assignment for the day. Even while we were stuck in this place, we couldn’t get away from homework; the center’s tutors made sure of that. “What’re you talking about?” I asked.
Shock registered on her face at my question, no doubt due to the fact that I hadn’t made it a point to talk to anyone since I’d arrived at the center. Even as my roommate, she hadn’t been an exception to that. She huffed a little and held up a book of poetry. “This fella is going on about how the world is going to end in fire or ice. Personally, I think he’s full of crap. But that’s just me.”
Coming up on Wednesday, I’ll have a character interview waiting for you guys. Have a great Monday!
