I’ve been nominated to take part in the 777 Challenge by Candice Coates.

Here’s a link to her awesome blog, do check it out:   http://icameforthesoup.com/2015/07/09/entering-the-777-challenge/

 

Whatever could the 777  be?  It sounds a bit mysterious. Is it some kind of origami challenge?

 

No it isn’t origami. It is where you share a snippet from one of your recent WIP (Works In Progress.)

 

The rules are simple:

•Go to page 7 of your WIP (Or an older work that you have done and just love.)
•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.

 

Just below the following short description you’ll find my selection from my first manuscript. It is a short excerpt from my fantasy novel set in Cambridge, UK.

Amelina is a young Krystallos, a girl with magical powers awakened by crystals, and art. There are many themes within the story, the main ones being: secrets, magic, deception, hypnotism, attraction, a hidden mystery, and the interplay between darkness and light.

Excerpt:

Amelina walked faster, her heart pounded in response trying to match the speed of her footsteps until it felt like it was stepping into a unified bursting point. The sound of their approaching foot-steps just behind her quickened, getting closer and closer.

As soon as they reached the tracks she heard the sound of a train thundering down. It silenced and stopped them all from moving an inch.

The tall boy sniggered, “Saved by the train.”

His friend laughed. The train thundered on.
