If you’ve been following my blog for a long time you know that I’ve done this challenge multiple times before. Recently Mr Roland Clarke took on the challenge, and he put out an open invitation to anyone reading to give it a shot as well, so I decided to take up the mantel once more.
The 777 challenge requires you go to Page 7 of your work-in-progress, scroll down to Line 7 and share the next 7 sentences in a blog post. Once you have done this, you can tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their work-in-progress.
The work-in-progress in question is, of course, Book One of my ‘The Other World’ series. It’s absolutely still a work in progress in the sense that some of it is sloppy and uncoordinated, but I’ll share it none-the-less, because that’s what the challenge is all about! So here we go…7 sentences starting with line 7 of the 7th page…
“Oh, please, don’t look at me like that,” Tori groaned. Her hand found a ball of yarn and she threw it at Jared’s chest. “It’s bad enough getting it from everyone else, but I can’t handle it from you guys too!”
The two shared a look before turning to Tori.
“We’re sorry,” Krista said. “It’s just that, well, it’s not healthy, you know?”
“We’re just worried about you,” Jared added.
So what do you think? Pretty vague, right? It just so happened that the challenge rules caused me to land on a scene that reveals absolutely nothing what-so-ever! Oh well, it still fun to share little tidbits.
So let’s play a game: What do you think the characters are talking about? Go on, have a guess!
As for tagging other bloggers, I’ll be doing the same as I usually do and extend an open invitation to anyone who would like to give it a go. If you do decide to try it out, please link back here so I can check out your excerpt!
