Last week, I messed up with the time zones and didn’t get my post up in time for WeWriWa. But luckily this week, I can! This is a continuation of the plot from two or three weeks ago. In that excerpt, Breeze is taken out of her Cell by her Guard, McVaine, which is unusual. Here’s what happens next. I hope you enjoy! 😀
McVaine seized my shoulder and propelled me into a room. I blinked a few times, the harshness of the light making me blind after so much darkness. My vision zoned in and out of focus, and when it finally settled, I saw around myself a room with white walls, a white floor, and a white ceiling. In the center of the room, also white, sat a rectangular, sharp-edged chair with wires and tubes feeding through it. Several machines, white, sat next to it, silently. A pair of swinging doors, like the ones I’d seen in old-fashioned Games and Movies, stood still on the other side of the room.
I am used to silence. But in this room, stark, white, and bare, the silence is unnatural and unnerving.

And there it is! 😀 I’m so happy to be back with WeWriWa. Like some of my other posts, this is an excerpt from the very first draft (what I like to call the “Alpha Draft”) of my novel. But unlike some of my other posts, this is one of the Alpha Excerpts which doesn’t really sound nice. 😛 So please, unleash the Constructive Criticism on me! I’d love to hear it. 😀 (Next week, I might post the first 8 sentences of the Alpha Draft of my novel; what do you guys think?)
Learning has been my inspiration of late. I’ve had no less than three ideas in the past week alone. Two of them are add-ons to previous projects and one of them was a completely new story idea. I’m going to be very excited whenever I get them written down. 😛
Of late, school has been very busy (well, obviously, seeing as I’m taking four advanced classes), so I haven’t had much time to write at all. I’m currently reading The 100 and Day 21, both novels by Kass Morgan (sent to me courtesy of the publisher, Little, Brown; thank you! 😀 ), and will be reading Gracefully Grayson (Ami Polonsky; thanks again to Disney Book Group! 🙂 ) after that. AND Echoes of Us by Kat Zhang came out this week. EVERYBODY GO READ THE HYBRID CHRONICLES!
And that’s pretty much been my life these past two weeks. 🙂 Sorry for the lack of enthusiasm and peppiness in this post, but I’ve been very tired lately (yesterday I walked over my dog’s blanket and called it a wall) so I’m going to be off to get some sleep soon.
Hope you guys enjoyed the excerpt and Happy 8Sunday!
