This is a daring blog challenge.
Why? Because, to those who accept, are willing to reveal some part of our writing that’s not yet ready for prime time.
It’s called the 777 Challenge. Thanks to Lucy Mitchell over at Blondewritemore for the nomination.
The rules are simple:
Go to page 7 of your WIP
Scroll down to line 7
Share the next 7 sentences in a blog post.
After the excerpt tag 7 other writers to continue the challenge.
Here I go:
When she reached her bedroom, Alissa couldn’t find the books from the odd bus. For once the floor was clean and clear. She shuffled through things stacked on the bookshelf, nothing new. All she found were old books, and a couple that were overdue from the town library. On hands and knees, head under her bed, she heard the door open.
“Mom, they’re not here. I left them in the floor by my bed, but now they’re gone.”
“Alissa, I don’t have time for games.”
Here are my nominations:
Can’t wait to read your excerpts.
I love comments, almost as much as I love clicks, so after you pass this on to your Facebook and Twitter pals remember to tell me what you think.
