MMC 7/20

Hello there!
Once again, I'm participating in the Monday's Minute Challenge hosted by Tessa Emily Hall on her blog. Also, this'll be my last post for a few weeks, since I'll be going on vacation with hardly any wifi. But when I get back I'll have some great blog tours coming up!
Anyway, my story this week is 262 words long, and it's a continuation of last week's story about Tara and Karly. (You can read last week's story here) I used the sentence prompt (submitted by Natalie), and had to write a piece either including, or based around the sentence: I turned around to get a better look and immediately wished I hadn't.

     “Tara?” Karly called softly as she pushed open the door to her friend’s apartment. “Tara, are you in here?”
     She took a step further and gasped. The entire room had been ransacked. Drawers lay overturned on the floor, and several things were broken.
     “Tara?” She called a bit louder. “Tara, where are you? Are you all rig…

MMC 7/6

Hey there, everyone!
     I'm back again with another Monday's Minute Challenge! (hosted by Tessa Emily Hall on her blog: My entry for this one is 260 words, and I used the picture prompt and the sentence prompt (both submitted by Maddie).

     The Space Kitties Facebook party was a blast (pun fully intended :) ) yesterday. I know I had a lot of fun, and a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to hang out with all of us authors!
     Camp NaNoWriMo and Ransom. Well, I've changed my wordcount again. I'm shooting for 25,000 words (more if I can) and I've already passed 10,000. I promise you though, this story will NOT die out after camp ends!
     And now, my Monday's Minute entry.

      “Hey, Tara,” Karly picked up her phone. “What’s up?”
      “Hey, Karly!” her friend answered. “Nothin much. How ‘bout you? How are things in the secret agent corner of the world?”

Ransom Related Things

Greetings, all!
     Well, it's July! No school, lots of summer heat, and lots of writing.
     Remember my goal of 50,000 words for Camp NaNoWriMo? Well, I've dropped it down to 35,000 because 50k just isn't possible without sacrificing everything else this month. But the good news is that Ransom is, slowly but surely, getting done! :) 4889 words and counting....
     (Trivia fact, Ransom is the first of my books to have a cover beyond doodles on a piece of paper)
     And today I have an excerpt from Ransom for you... just cuz. :)

     Lucas rattled the manacles on his wrists, searching for any weaknesses in the metal- weaknesses which he could exploit in order to escape. Though, he cast a wry look at the cell door, he’d have to get free of more than the manacles for an escape to be successful.
     He sighed, wrapped his arms around his knees and leaned his head against his arms.
     Soft footsteps echoed through the dungeon, accompanied by the scraping …
