WELCOME to the second link-up of Snazzy Snippets, hosted by yours truly and the wonderful Alyssa from The Devil Orders Takeout.
So if you click on the drop-down box, you can see what it’s all about!
What is Snazzy Snippets for?
It’s an opportunity for writers! Every two months, we post a prompt or question for you to share a snippet of less than 500 words. It’s designed to let you have fun, analyse your work on a smaller level, or just write something to join in. If you’re not a writer, or aren’t working on anything, don’t go back up the rabbit hole just yet. Read everyone’s wonderful snippets on the linky!
Who are you guys, anyway?
Me (Emily): I’m an Australian blogger and writer. I mainly write contemporary YA fiction. Since I’m always sharing snippets of my writing on Twitter and my blog, I wanted to give others a chance to!
Alyssa: I’m a Hong Kong blogger and YA writer. I write diverse and empowered girls in worlds of magic, madness and murder. I post monthly #WatchMeWrite videos on my blog, and I love to read other online writers’ works. So here we are!
Who can participate and what can I post?
Post anything, so long as it pertains to the prompt/question and is under 500 words! (We won’t kill you if it’s a bit over, of course, but we may frown.) It can be something you wrote at 3 AM the night before or a passage you’ve been slaving over for months. And of course, it has to be your own writing. Plagiarism isn’t snazzy.
I have the BEST idea for a snippet prompt/question.
Wonderful! Tweet or email Emily (@theloonytuney, emily.mead3[at]live.com.au) or Alyssa (@AlyssaC_HK, alyssa.carlier[at]gmail.com), and we’ll do our best to include your idea in a future Snazzy Snippets post!
And here are this week’s prompts:
[alert] 1. A snippet with FOOD in it. [/alert]
[alert] 2. A snippet you’re really proud of. [/alert]
[alert] 3. The first paragraph from a WIP. [/alert]
And without further ado, here are my snippets. Number ONE was a snippet with food in it.
2. A snippet you’re proud of.
This one’s from the same chapter, actually. Considering I’m not great a description, I really like how this turned out.
Snippet 3 – the first paragraph of a WIP.
As you can probably tell, this is the BEGINNING of Wanderland. It’s more than a paragraph, but…whatever. Deal with it.
So those are my snippets! And remember you can link up below:
OH, and do you have any suggestions for snippets we could include next time? Will you be linking up??
