A 'look' meme for fun

I found this idea on Michelle Gregory's blog Beautiful Chaos. You have to find the first use of the word 'look' in your WIP and post the surrounding paragraph.  Here it is:

What information I have managed to draw together I have put into narrative form, so that it makes for an easier read and holds more colour than a list of dry and dusty facts, figures and dates. Perhaps I have embroidered slightly along the way to make my past seem a little more exciting, since it seems I have limited future to look forward to. Wherever possible, however, I have remained faithful to the truth as I have discovered it. There are no outright lies, although the story contains a few unavoidable assumptions, and there is some padding, based on historical circumstances.

thanks for sharing.

I was surprised to find that in my curret major WIP, 'look' on its own did not occure until some 9000 words in, and in a couple of previous chapters, only once.

An interesting idea, should I...
By the way, the link does not work for me.

No - link not working for me either - I clicked via Michelle's comment, but then it led on so I merely checked my own WIP out of interest.
