I found out recently that I was tagged in a really awesome writing tag by Kat of Life and Other Disasters – all of these tags for writers popping up is so freaking awesome 🙂 Each of them have been as challenging as they’ve been fun. This one is called ‘Your WIP in Gifs Tag’ and it’s pretty chill as far as the questions go. All you have to do for each question is as the title suggests – find a fitting GIF!
So let’s get into it!!
Your WIP in GIFS Tag!
💛 Thank the person who tagged you
💛 Credit the creator of this tag (Michelle!) and link back to this post so she can find out allll about your WIPs!
💛 Try to limit the amount of gifs you use per question – I’d say maybe stick to five or less but I’m not the boss of you
Sum up your WIP in 4 gifs!
A catastrophic environmental disaster is coming and the government thinks the only way to survive it is kidnap those who are considered ‘unwanted’ and making them unbreakable. Buut the method isn’t perfect enough for the public just yet. One of those unlucky test subjects happens to be the MC. When she escapes, she has a choice: Take them down and find another way or leave everyone and everything she knew and go into hiding.
Time to introduce your main characters!
I just love this Claire Fraser gif too much and it sums up Ava soo well! Seriously – I almost broke the rule and went with like a whole 5 photos for her. Ava knows what she wants but she can be a little impulsive and reckless – whether it be her horribly bad luck or her aforementioned flaws that get her into trouble – this her for like 80% of the book.
Linc has lived a really dark life and has convinced himself he’s trapped in limbo for all that he’s done. But one act of courage from Ava inspires him that maybe he can still dig himself out of the life cycle he’s trapped in – he wants a chance to change.
This gif literally represents Noah in a nutshell – he’s charming, funny and a good listener. He’s the ying to Linc’s yang (is that too cheesy? probably but oh well), he’s the optimism to Linc’s pessimism – you get the idea. While these opposites can get on each others nerves, they’ll always have each others backs.
Sav begins in a really traumatized mind-set thanks to an experiment that renders her unsure if she’s more afraid of then people who did this to – or herself. But being outside safe cozy walls and standing in a rebelion with her best friend, Ava, and the boy who she begrudgingly admits makes her feel safe (Noah), she begins to come out of her shell and into her own.
How would your main character react in a crisis?
Ava would be completely poker face for a moment and then turn the corner so she could freak the hell out and hyperventilate a little. And then she’d be over it be exactly like this xD Meanwhile, Linc is just done with hiding and so come what will – he’ll be waiting.
If you were to meet your main characters, how would you react?
I’d be a gibbering mess of squeaks and gasps and probaably faint.
And if you were to meet your antagonist?
I mean super powers are epic and all – but Dom’s way doesn’t exactly tickle soooo I’d just settle for running to the other side of the planet.
Is there any romance in your WIP? How would you sum it up in gifs?
This sums up how their relationship goes – without ruining the entire plot xD
How do other characters feel about this ship?
I don’t know where this gif is from buuut hey if the shoe fits! Lincoln is an ex soldier to some really horrible people so most people do one super untrustworthy double take. Until they get to know him that is.
How do you want people to react to reading your WIP?
Mainly, I want people to be really surprised by the twist because they’re attached to the characters….and then hopefully give them a good book hangover xP
I tag annnyone who wants to do this tag! I think Kat nominated most of the writers I know of so if you liked this tag as much as us, feel free to take a crack at it! Some of these were a breeze and others I literally had so much trouble!!
Do you like to find photos that inspire you for your writing or do you find inspiration elsewhere? Let me know in the comments down below 🙂 Hope you enjoyed the tag! Have an awesome week everyone!
