777 Writing Challenge

I’m absorbed in the middle of my Scrivener software tutorial, wondering why it’s taken me so long to discover this wonderful writing tool!

Suddenly my phone is blipping and I’ve been nominated for the 777 Writing Challenge.

The rules of the 777 Writing Challenge are as follows:

‘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.’

I was tagged by Matt Potter, who’s obviously done a bit of painting in his time…with a twist.

I nominate Marigold Dicer, Annabelle Franklin, Paula Antonello Moore, Timi YeseiboBen Brown, Michelle Weaver, and Michelle Goodhew. (Michelle, I know you’re primarily an illustrator but I’m always inspired by your writing.)

My WIP is Arafura – Unfinished Business (aptly named) as I’m re-editing the novel before starting the third in the series.

‘Light reflecting off shattered glass on the ground caught Kat’s attention as she approached her car.

Why didn’t I notice treading on it earlier?

Looking up to see the broken car park light above, she didn’t react fast enough, even scream, before a figure rushed her from behind.

The last thing Kat felt was a sharp and painful jab to her thigh.

Chapter Two

It wasn’t until the next morning that Kat’s absence was noticed.

The afternoon before, she and Lily had attended their Sunday afternoon dance class. As usual, Kat felt safe in the darkened back row, farthest from the instructors.’

  1. Thank you so much for nominating me! I’ll have to cheat a bit and use The Slapstyx for the challenge, as my WIP is in the embryonic stage at the moment – i.e. mostly in my head apart from a few scribbled notes on scraps of paper!
