You Choose: Which Story Excerpt Should I Share?

Ahoy, lovely ladies and classy gents! I hope all is well. If you’ve read my November Writing Update, you know that I’m working on my novel at full-capacity. Because I’m in story-writing mode, I figure there is no better time to share with you a piece of what I’m working on. On Friday, I will extend to you a short (2-3 page) excerpt from my novel-in-the-works so you could get a taste of what I’ve been up to! Here’s the catch! 

You (yes, you!) get to decide which excerpt I will feature. There is a poll below where you can vote for either snippet. Before you make your choice, you may want to take a gander at the info below, as it may help you to identify the excerpt you might be more interested in reading.

Choice #1, pulled from a chapter titled, “To Wrestle With a Starved Bull”

Clarence receives a knock to the family jewels due to his horse’s abrupt stop. Much to his dismay, Clarence can do nothing but writhe in pain in front of his new companion, Kairi. An exchange ensues.

Choice #2, pulled from a chapter titled, “For Cash, For Coin”

Kal, who was featured last week in a Character Tag, is caught in the middle of a lab accident. He is severely wounded. The description of his injury is graphic in nature, so this excerpt isn’t ideal for those who are squeamish.

Here’s the poll! 

(for WordPress users, you can vote without having to follow a link if you view this post outside of Reader).

If you voted, thanks for voting! If you didn’t…why didn’t you? It’s free. I’ll see you on Friday!

As always, stay classy.

      1. Oh no, don’t feel sorry! Kal feels sorry for himself on a daily basis, enough where he honestly wouldn’t pay a care to anyone else’s opinions of him. You’re in the clear 🙂

  1. This is a good idea. I’m far to linear a thinker to be able to pull that off. I have to start at chapter 1 and go from there. Even when I read advanced chapters, I have to start the book over when I get it. I’m just hardwired that way. Still, each option seems solid, and a good way to get a bit of your content out. Looking forward to the post.

    1. I’m glad you’re looking forward to it!
      Reading random selections in isolation maddens me, but with WordPress being a platform of small portion sizes, I think brevity is the way to go for now. At least, until I have whole chapters ripe and worked enough to share.
