Actually Finishing Something in July - Week 4


It's never too late to join the challenge! Go to: http://katie-writingblog.blogspot.com to see other people's posts and previous questions.
Week Four Questions

How goes progress?
Progress goes well! :D I'm at 22,780 so far, and am hoping to get lots of writing done today with the Go Teen Writers Word Wars.

Snippet-time! Share a snippet or two from your weekly writing.

      “Oops,” Enna winced, picking them up and putting a key in the lock, twisting and turning it, “It’s not moving.”
       Finis smirked, “It must not be the right key then, try another.”
      Enna glared at him, her voice coated with sarcasm, “Oh, really? I didn’t notice. Thanks.”
      “Anytime,” Finis offered, and then peered down the hallway, shouts echoing throughout the dungeon, “Can you hurry? Please?”
      Enna pursed her lips, lowering her eyebrows in concentration, “I’m working on it.”


That's the only snippet I found that begged me to share with ya'll. Otherwise nothing else popped out to my interest.

Do you have a Pinterest inspiration board, or other collection of images, that inspires your story? If so, share a couple of them with us.

This is what I picture Enna to be like:

Enna. Her smile rarely disappears from her face
And here is what I think my other main character, Alynn, looks like:
This kinda seems like Alynn, solemn, yet has a shy encouraging smile to share
How would the main character of your story react if he or she were introduced to you?

Alynn would act kindly. I don't think we're that much different besides the age, and I'm more extroverted and she's more introverted. It would take a little while to crack her open, but after that I think we would have a fine time together.
Introduce us to one or two of the secondary characters in your story. 

Ruvyn: He was apprenticed to a doctor for most of his life and is now quite experienced in that profession. He is more of a serious person, and the oldest of the group that I have together. He's strong, humble, smart, and occasionally his sense of humor peeks through.
Looks: He's 20 years old, short brown hair, tall, with a strong build.

If your main character were allowed to choose a super-power, which power would he or she most desire? 

To be able to stop evil so she could have everyone she loves close to her. What superpower she would pick to accomplish that... You'll have to ask her yourself.

We're nearing the end of this summer challenge! Is the completion of your goal in sight?

Yes! I actually could see myself finishing my goal of 25,000 today or tomorrow. I do think I'll end up writing a few extra words (Which ranges from a couple hundred to a couple thousand) but I really can't say at this point.
*Side Note* Anna and I are currently on vacation, so while we're going to try to keep our posts on a timely basis this week, I can't promise anything. Hopefully I'll post some pictures in the next couple of days.
