This week’s excerpt is a continuation of last week‘s, and talks more about the world in The CyberWorld. Enjoy reading!
I have heard tales, tales of people who disappeared mysteriously from their cells, never to return.
We are instructed to sit, become vegetables in front of our computers every day. They feed us stories, rumors delivered straight to our inboxes, of people dying, disappearing. It is clear to us that those instances will be us, if we do not follow their rules. So we do.
Games–I hate them; the CyberWorld residents are forced to play them, mindless agonies that the Creators must delight in. Each Game lasts for an hour. Twelve hours in a day; twelve games a day; every single day.

So yet more world-building. It doesn’t read quite as nicely as I want it to, but a lot of that’s because of the rearranged punctuation. There’s quite a lot of world-building, when you think about it, but it’s necessary to the first few chapters and the readers’ knowledge. Her style kind of becomes repetitive, but I’m hoping the reader will be able to draw from that and learn about her character. A lot of the second chapter and end of the first concentrates on her as a character, and tells about her character’s backstory and past. For some reason, I always find my villains much more interesting than my main characters, possibly because they are so complex. I featured Bellatris, the villain of The CyberWorld in my character blog hop, instead of Breeze for this reason. This is pretty close to the end of the chapter, just a page or two left. My chapters are relatively long compared to most YA books I read, and I may cut them down or split them up. So anyways. I hope you enjoyed my week’s excerpts, and I apologize for my two-paragraph ramble. On a side note, I hope all of my scheduled blog posts have appeared on time… if they haven’t please tell me about it so I can fix the issue! 😀 Happy 8Sunday, Blog Post, Idea, and Novel Excerpt © Sabrina Wolfheart & the Books and Bark blog
