Thank you so much to Vashti Quiroz-Vega author of The Basement for nominating me to take part in the 777 challenge.
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!
