The "look" challenge from @nr_walker Tag- @ameliajune @tessablurb @msmithbooks @macybeckett @joelysue @akmorgen @kiernankelly @sloanparker @rgraceallen @immelly2 @writerkatherine @tiffanyreisz

I've been tagged. According to the rules, you're supposed to do a search in your work in progress for the word "look" and then paste the surrounding paragraph and tag as many people as possible. Here's my paragraph from my soon to be released novel Downpour:

“Okay. I get it. So he doesn’t like you.” I hang my head and study the bar. “Dude. You can’t just roll over and die.” He swats my cheek so I look back at him. “He was a good fuck, yes?”
Normally, I’d slap Jesse upside his head for that kind of crap and we’d end up in a wrestling match. I would end up with him sitting on me and smacking me with my own hand, but I just nod pathetically. “Okay then,” he coos. “You had great sex. Now, you move on.”
“How do I move on when he’s all I can think about?”
“We get you going with someone else. We’ll find you some cute, nerdy kid with skinny jeans or a hot twink and just... get you back on the horse.”
I whine back, “What if I don’t want another horse?”
He pats me sympathetically on the shoulder and says, “Well, then you can move back in with your parents and adopt some cats.”

And I tag- Amelia June, Tessa Conte, Michelle Smith, Macy Beckett, Joely Sue Burkhart, Ayden Morgen, Kiernan Kelly, Rebecca Grace Allen, Melissa Marino, Katherine Laurin, Sloan Parker, and Tiffany Reisz!
