Ms. Rawls of Rawls E. Fantasy took the 7/7/7 challenge last week (and her 7 lines were great fun to read) and nominated me to take the challenge as well. I’ve taken this challenge before, as some of you might remember – and enjoyed it thoroughly – so taking it again was a pleasure.
This particular selection (page 7, line 7, 7 lines) is taken from “Thundercrest“, the novella which I’m working on. (and hoping to finish soon – grrr)
“That’s what we get paid for, sir. Better we get stepped on than shot, y’know.”
“True enough. You got word about the enemy? Good. See if you can get to an overwatch position, then. Whetstone is going to hit them and Hammer squad has orders to let off some steam if they need backup.”
Chizon continued down the slope, grinning as snippets of the conversation behind him reached his ears.
“…. glad I’m a sniper, then.”
What do you think? Does it make you want to read over my shoulder as I finish writing the novella?
The rest of the challenge involves nominating 7 other bloggers to take the challenge, too. Unfortunately… Ms. Rawls beat me to nominating most of the bloggers I know! I’ll just nominate a few bloggers whose 7 lines I’d like to see and they may accept or refuse the challenge as they like.
- Go to page 7 of your WIP
- 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.
Have fun, writers!
