WIP Wednesday

WIP Wed

Hello once again, readers!!!

Guess what?! It’s WIP Wednesday. Better known as hump day! *cue whistles and hand clapping*

But I digress.

I’m going to get right to it because I’m still in the middle of writing and I don’t want to spend too much time away from the manuscript. I am, however, 46k into Evernight now! Woot!

*High five from afar!*

Any who. Here’s a small snippet from the chapter I worked on yesterday. Please remember this is pre-edits:

“You,” he says, stopping in front of Gavin. “You’re the go-to, aren’t you? The man with the plan? The one everyone turns to, correct?”

Gavin smiles confidently. “What can I say? I know how to deliver,” he says.

Modesty isn’t his strong point.

The General nods to himself. “You don’t really have any fears, do you?”

Gavin shrugs a little. “Nothing that I can rattle off the top of my head,” he says with a grin, shoving his hands in his pocket. I can see the balloon labeled ego inflating over top of his head, just waiting to be popped.

“And you’re confident in yourself and your abilities,” the General continues, guiding him to a point I’m sure Gavin is unaware of.

Gavin pulls his hand out of his pocket, straightening out his shoulders. “I haven’t failed yet.” He jerks his head around when Jezi and Cassie cough, and squints at them.

Weldon’s chin drops as he tries to hide his smile.

“And that is precisely your problem,” the General says, ending Gavin’s little bout of pride and the girls laughter. “You’re so wrapped up in your own ego that you fail to see your own weaknesses. You concern yourself with the rest of these cream puffs, feeding off of being the one they look up to, and thinking that you’re untouchable.”

“Walked right into that one,” Weldon says low enough so only me and Jaxen can hear him.

The General takes a step closer to Gavin who’s brows are scrunched. “There’s a thin line between intelligence and stupidity when it comes to confidence, and that line is labeled doubt. The smart ones are the ones who consistently question what they are doing, and why they are doing it. And the dumb ones, well, you can guess where I’m going with this. They, like you, think everything will work out smoothly and never question anything.”

And scene! It’s lesson time from the big dogs…something Gavin and Jaxen haven’t dealt with in a looooong time.

Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to finish and share this with you all!

Unremarkable (Anything But #2) Cover Reveal by Lindy Zart

Hello once again, readers!!! Today I have the privilege of showcasing the cover reveal for Lindy Zart’s latest novel in the Anything But series, Unremarkable! Check it out:

Unremarkable (Anything But #2)

SYNOPSIS: 
Thrust into a reality that should be myth, Honor does what she has to do to survive. Some things are easy to say goodbye to. Others things, like her very being, are not so easy to let go of. And when she does, what then? What will she become?

As Honor fights to survive and to remain unaltered when everything around her, including her, has been, she is met with adversaries and champions. Ryder, Christian, Nealon—they all have a goal. Only Honor doesn’t know if their goals coincide with hers, or Superior August’s and the UDK society.

One thing she does know: the world isn’t big enough for all of them.

AUTHOR BIO: 

I’ve been writing since I was a wee lass. I was reading before that; possibly while still in the womb. Don’t think about that too much.

I started out with short horror stories and poetry. I was terrible at it. The poems not so much, but the stories were awful.

I decided to finish a book (and I DO mean finish–I’d started plenty throughout the years) when I was in my mid-twenties (so not that long ago because I’m young and will forever stay that way). Again, not my best work.

But that’s the thing about writing; it improves with time. (It’s also a good thing to know your work can’t possibly be any worse than it was when you first started.)

What I love most about writing is having people tell me how much they enjoy my work; how my writing touches them; makes them feel intensely.

Bringing a reader to laughter or tears is a wonderful feeling for a writer, and no, I’m not sadistic. *insert evil laugh HERE* It means I got them to feel, to respond to something I created.

Also, I just like to make stuff up and put it down on paper. I have an endless supply of stories in my head; lots of stuff to share with the world.

Happy Reading!
