Natalie Lockett has hit 15,000 words, meaning she’s reached Silver Pen status. WOOOO! So excited for you, lady. It’s a great achievement, and we’re glad to be here to celebrate with you. Read an excerpt from her NaNo project, Wicked Girl, below, and let her know what you think 😀
Laina James, palace maid turned lady in waiting, discovers that sometimes it is the prince that needs saving–and this time it is from the princess.
Cireena stood, disturbing all of the air in the room like a wind storm. Her lithe body approached me with slow, predatory steps. She cocked her head to the side, inspecting my face and running her gaze over the curve of my form. When she stood close enough for me feel the heat of her breath on my face, her long fingers curled around my jaw.
“Such a pretty little thing. Like a doll.” She bared her teeth, it might have been a smile from a distance. Grasping a handful of my hair she continued, “Don’t you like it when they pull your hair? That delicious sort of pain that takes your breath away.”
She said the words into my ear, a lovers whisper, but it was loud enough for the entire room to hear it. And then she pulled. Hard. I cried out.
“What a lovely sound.”
Keep it up, Natalie! You’re killing it 🙂
