The Snippets Tag


December 9, 2016


   I hath been tagged to willingly share some snippets - which will be most amusing for you and probably very good for me xD. Thank you for the tag, Madeline! (she created it, so that's pretty cool *nodnod*) Let's see if I can find anything not super-embarrassing to show you guys ...


- Ze Rules -

1. Include the graphic Madeline created or link to Madeline in the post 
2. Answer all the questions, however you want to. Creative interpretation is the key here! You can use the book you're currently working on to answer the questions, or other books you've started or have written. 
3. Tag 2-5 other bloggers 

(disclaimer: (I have three of these this time around xD) Most of the snippets are only lightly edited, if they are edited at all, and I will be skipping a few questions because of spoilers. But here's Madeline's original post, so those I tag can see what all the questions were *nodnod*. And I'll be using snippets from multiple different stories - but the picture should tell you which story it's from)

   Alright, I'm done rambling. Onto the questions! *goes scrounging around for suitable snippets*  

1. Share your most gripping, fascinating, and hooking first line of a story. 

   *has already shared this one with you* But hey, I'll do it again - seeing as it's the best I've got xD.


2. Share a snippet that made you want to shout to the world that you're SO. HAPPY. 

   Hmm ... *thinks* Well, this definitely isn't one of my best snippets (I wrote it quite awhile ago *cringe*) but it placed in Tessa Hall's Monday Minute Challenge, and it was the first time my writing had actually received recognition of any sort. So I was happy, to say the least xD. Here's part of it - 
 

3. Share a snippet that gives you a bit of insight into one of your most favorite characters ever.  

    Ooh, this one is pretty easy. *throws the snippet at you, even if you may have already read it* 


4. Share a snippet that gets you beaming with pride and you're just like 'yep, I wrote that beauty'.  

   *tries to think of a snippet like this* *draws a blank* Well, I'll just throw something random at you then. Works every time I'm at a loss xD. 


5. Share a snippet of genius, deliciously witty dialogue between your characters. 

   Do you guys know how hard it was to find a snippet that fits this description? It was hard. I still don't know if it fits this description - but here ya go. (also, this is the first time I've shared something from Killing Snow's sequel, so it is momentous xD) *winces because snippet isn't edited whatsoever and desperately needs it* *shares anways*


6. Share a snippet that leaves you breathless, in a cold sweat with action-induced intensity. 

   Okay, news flash - I am horrible at writing action scenes. So we'll see what I can do here ...  (this is more of a right-before-the-action-starts scene, but hush, I'm totally not cheating xD)


7. Share a snippet of a most interesting first meeting between your characters. 

   Oh wow. My characters have had many interesting meetings with each other. *tries to pick just one snippet to share* 


I tag ...

Soleil @ Reviews By Soleil 
 Jonathan Trout @ Fishing For Ideas
Brianna Henderson @ Ramblings of a Pilgrim on The Way
Sarah Margaret @ The Introverted Extrovert 
Mary @ Sunshine And Scribblings
Julia Ryan @ The Barefoot Gal
and you! *gives the tag to everyone*

   *ignores the fact that I tagged one more person than I should*

   This was a super fun tag, Madeline! (despite the fact that it was terribly hard to find snippets to let you all see *cough*) Thank you for tagging me - and if any of you do this tag, make sure to throw me the link to it so I can see your writing! *wishes to read all the snippets*

  7. SAVANNAH GRACE YOUR WRITING. YOUR WRITIIIING!!!!!!! You're going to become like a teenage bestseller or something at this rate. YOU. ARE. SO. TALENTED.

    Okay. Cerulean sounds amazing. O_O I can see why he's your favorite. Hehe.

    I LOVED the part where you said maybe the window had better eyes than she did. How it revealed everything as broken. That is...THAT IS PURE GOLD RIGHT THERE.

    ALL OF THIS IS GOLDEN. *huggles gorgeous writing*

  11. Oooooh, love this, Savannah!! The question about your favorite character--Cerulean came to mind right away. That one was probably my favorite. #obsession Or from Killing Snow's sequel. . . I can't believe you gave us that! I WANT MORE!! Because awesome Savannah stories, and Cerulean Kane. His daggers though. . . #AllTheCoolness

    P.S. The Killing Snow one about the cracked window is also SO. GOOD. I've always loved that one, even though it gives me the shivers. So. . . I think you could sum this whole comment up with: I LOVE KILLING SNOW!!

    P.P.S. The Dreamer's Game seriously sounds SO CREEPY. But I would still jump on an opportunity to read it. ;)

    1. I thought you might have fun reading these ;D. And I KNEW you would like that I shared from Killing Snow's sequel - I told Ariel you would enjoy that *nodnod*. (*whispers* I also think Cerulean is pretty cool, but not like I'm going to tell him that xD)

      THANK YOU! I'm a little over halfway done with another Killing Snow edit - I can't wait until all of the editing is DONE. *is dying of exhaustion*

      The Dreamer's Game IS pretty different from what I normally write - but I think that's what is making it so much fun! And you'll definitely get to read it once I edit it :D.

    2. Haha, you know me so well! ;)
      Oh yay! I love beta-reading for you, and just getting to hear your stories!
      P.S. I want to read the final version of Killing Snow! Are you sending it to your beta-readers? (Pretty please with a cherry on top???)
