The girls at Falling for Fiction are hosting a Hookers and Hangers blog hop. Today we are posting some of the 'hookers' from our WIP. (Hookers as in first lines from chapters, meant to 'hook' you.)
I am using lines from my MG fairy tale re-telling GRETEL.
Before I show you my lines, here's what I've learned from going through my WIP for this blog hop. My hookers are kinda' weak. I will definitely be going through again and trying to find ways to strengthen them. A big THANK YOU to the girls at Falling for Fiction for doing this! It's not only a super fun hop, it's a very helpful one as well! (But you knew that already.) ;)
So here are some of my hookers:
We sat at the dinner table with little to eat and nothing to say.
If my step-mother was ice, the old woman was fire.
I was frosting a rich chocolate cake when I first saw it.
“I will tell you again, child, I am no fool.”
The night was filled with nightmares.
She glared at me, her lovely eyes narrowing down to tiny blue slits.
Come back for my 'hangers' on the 18th and go check out the other by clicking the link above. I'm excited to see what other people have done!
