Hump Day Hook

I've been mostly posting over at picowrimo since the first of the month, but it's Wednesday and that means another Hump Day Hook. So here's another paragraph from the beginning of my new WiP, Finding Rupert, carrying on shortly after last week's scene:

Friday 30th June 1978

The sky was partially overcast, but the moon gave enough light, as Edward's eyes adapted, for him to make a careful study of Christophe's hands. Edward was a connoisseur of hands, and kept his in the best possible condition, even when his days mostly consisted of manual labour on the farm or in his garages. Christophe had long straight fingers, with clean, neatly trimmed nails. Not visible from the current angle, or in current light conditions, were the calluses Edward remembered from previous encounters. Calluses, he suspected, that had more to do with the handling of firearms than with any amount of motorcycle riding.


The WiP is progressing even faster thanks to picowrimo, which incidentally is still open for more to join in this month and/or next month.

If you want to see what other people have been writing, the full list of participants is here. Go give them some comment-love.
