What is the 777 Writer’s Challenge?

The author/writer must go to the 7th page of a work-in-progress, go to line 7 on that page and share the following 7 sentences. The writer must also invite 7 other writers to take the same challenge.

It seems simple enough but for a writer, sharing a random piece of work, still in progress, is daunting. However, I accept the challenge and I thank Vashti for thinking of me. <3

Here’s the link to Vashti’s  awesome blog, do check it out she is super friendly and well worth a follow:  https://vashtiqvega.wordpress.com/2015/08/01/777-writers-challenge-the-fall-of-lilith/

I’ve been nominated to do this before so this time I’ll introduce you to  a snippet from my current WIP, a children’s story about a naughty girl called Morag who likes to get into mischief and ruffles the scales of a toy shop dragon. As this is a fantasy the dragon ends up being much more than just a toy dragon! I have entitled the short snippet Morag’s Mischief and Mayhem, hope you like it!

Morag’s Mischief and Mayhem

Morag’s father looked at her in dismay, ‘Oh, that’s awfully naughty, you’ll be in for it!’

Eilidh smirked, “Mother and grandmother will be very angry.”

“Aye and that’s a fact,” said her father eyeing Morag critically.

Morag shrugged and tossed her hair back. The dragon’s eyes watched her angrily, in fact his eyes seemed to glow a deeper red as Morag walked towards the door. Morag could swear that she heard a muffled cry, and the words, ‘I’ll visit you later.’ Her eyes smarted as if the shop had filled with smoke. This time she sensed that she had gone too far. The spirits of her Chinese ancestors were flaming mad!

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.
