I’ve been challenged by my writer buddy Beth Overmyer to complete the 7/7/7 challenge. The rules of the 7/7/7 challenge are:
Go to page 7 of your work-in-progress
Scroll down to line #7
Share the next 7 lines of your manuscript in a blog post
Tag 7 other writers (with blogs) to continue the challenge.
I have two WIPs at the moment, so why not, I’ll post seven lines* from each. If you’re following along on Twitter, the relevant tags are #SekritNovel and #FoxBook 😉
Lights flashed in my eyes, gold with edges of red. I blinked rapidly, trying to clear my vision.
“You right, Becca?” I could hear Carly’s voice but even when I turned away from the body the lights sparked, faster and faster and brighter and brighter.
My stomach whirled—or was that the room?—and I only had time to gasp for air before something hard and heavy and cold smacked me in the shoulder and the side of my head, and everything went blessedly quiet and still.
“What?” Sunmi straightened like a hound on a scent.
Dad cut sharp eyes towards her and I rolled my own again. “Dad, he was in her year at school. She’s going to find out.”
“Find out what?”
Dad chewed his mouthful of [food] so carefully, I half expected him to regurgitate it on Sunny’s plate—his precious little baby bird. I sighed and turned to her. “Blake Johnson? From school?”
*I may have interpreted this a little loosely for the sake of making sense. Just saying.
As for tagging other people… Um, consider yourself tagged? Post a link in the comments and I’ll come check out your 7/7/7 🙂
