Ok… I’ve never shared this with anyone, ever. So, it kind of freaks me out posting it here, honestly. Anyway, this is a rough-rough draft. A pre-shitty rough draft. The roughest draft of all possible rough drafts. It’s a children’s book I’ve been working on. I honestly don’t even have a title for it!
At any rate, David is the main character, and he has two friends – Franny who is carefree, and Matthew who is extremely paranoid. David’s dad is a really evil wizard, and they live in the castle with the King. I guess I should mention it’s a fantasy … ahem anyway here goes:
“Is your dad…” Franny trailed off as they arrived at the sea. “Watching us?”
“Of course he is!” Matthew exclaimed. “He put a hex on David that lets him see through his eyes. It’s a powerful Wizard curse, they do it to people all the time.” Matthew ran ahead of the other two and jumped in the water making a large splash.
“Is that true?” Franny whispered to David, wondering if Aeron could see her questioning him.
“No!” David screwed up his face, “Of course not! Don’t you think I’d notice if I had a hex put on me?” David tried to brush off what Matthew had just said, but was finding it hard to shake the feeling that he was being watched.
I liked the method of tagging I used a few weeks ago — if you are a writer and want a fun way to share 7 lines of your work in progress… like or comment and consider yourself tagged!
Ahem, sorry I got a tad overzealous there, I’m better now.
