I Finished My WIP!!!



Greetings, all!

I am pleased to announce that I have officially finished my WIP, Mission: Metal!!! I’m so excited! It’s the first long story that I have ever finished. In celebration, I wanted to share some snippets, collages, and some songs that I wrote this story to with you all.

Snippets

*

Shae smiled at the bright orange color of Archer’s message. Normally she hated the color orange, but Archer had set her comdev to show the brightest colors whenever he sent her a message. Everyone else got the darker colors; blue, green, or black. Now she was beginning to think of Archer in correlation to bright colors.

*

Ian nodded. “What can I do?”

“Want to help me with the big gun?” Archer asked, with a twinkle of mischief in his eyes.

Ian stared in disbelief. “Seriously?” He had wanted to help with the cannon ever since he had first set eyes on it, years ago. Archer had never let him. Until now.

Archer nodded. “Sure; I do need an assistant.”

Ian got up and saluted. “Yes sir!” Turning to go, he ran into Liam the scout. Liam grabbed Ian to steady him.

“Whoa there, son. Watch where you’re going,” he said, letting go of Ian and nodding at Archer.

Ian’s face turned red. “Sorry-sorry, sir. Yes-yes sir!” He turned and ran off again, this time more careful to watch where he was going.

Liam chuckled. “Kids.”

*

Shae could see Ian’s eyes now; instead of the bright golden color they had been before they were now a dark hazel, haunted and frightened.

*

They sat there together, a broken family; and yet they were somehow stronger than before.

*

Shae gripped her Glock.

                The men rounded the corner, guns held at the ready.

                Shae grabbed the metal bar, flipped herself up, and pressed the top button of a detonator.

                The hall was a cold gray one moment; the next was it was a bright red and gold.

Collages

This one is for a character that doesn’t actually show up in the book; Dojan, and it’s about his backstory. 
 This is for my awesome character Liam.
 This one is for my main character, Shae.
 

Songs


Well, that’s a little taste of my story. I still can’t believe it’s over! I’ve been working on it for almost an entire year now.

What do you guys think of the snippets and collages? How are your WIPs going?

Namarie!
