In July I was kindly nominated by Diana at http://mythsofthemirror.com/2015/07/17/the-777-writers-challenge/ for the 777 Challenge. A talented writer she has published numerous books as D. Wallace Peach. Do check these out. Furthermore her blog is a joy to read touching on a variety of subjects both inspiring and heart-warming.
The 777 Challenge involves going to page 7 of your WIP, scrolling down to line 7 and from there share the next 7 sentences in a blog post. After that please tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their WIP.
In midst of work and packing for holiday I had to delay until now to complete the challenge. Here is my offering.
My 777 Challenge is from my current (very rough first draft ) WIP which is a contemporary novel entitled ‘Island Girl’, where a girl’s home island of love and freedom becomes her prison from which she has to flee to save her Self.
This paragraph is one from Anna in her school years.
‘Interrupted in her homework, Anna was sent by her father to search for her wayward sister. What was she up to now? How were her parents still so blind to their mischievous little daughter. That was probably it, Katrina being younger as well as her smile. Anna had to admit it was the cutest in the history of smiles. She’d tried it once when in trouble and her parents had quickly asked her if she was in agony. How embarrassing. Never again.’
I’m tagging the following bloggers for this challenge. If some of you have completed this before, my apologies. No worries if you don’t want to partake, just accept it as my recognition and appreciation of you as members here on wordpress.
