Fellow blogger Kay Morris of Kay Morris Writes has challenged me to join the 7-7-7 Writer’s Challenge!
The rules: Go to the 7th page of my WIP. Find the 7th sentence on that page, then paste the following 7 sentences into my blog post. Finally, select 7 other writers for the challenge!
Below is an excerpt from my women’s lit-romance WIP, titled “What Might Have Been.” Here we meet the main character and her long-time best friend on the eve of their college friends’ wedding:
Fighting a clenching sensation in my stomach, I willed myself to peer up at him. Sam was looking out towards the shoreline, his gray eyes clouded and brow furrowed. “I think I should turn in for the night. We both have an early wake-up tomorrow for the wedding party festivities,” I said.
Standing slowly, I leaned forward to kiss him on the cheek, lingering for a second in the aroma of his after-shave. I looked down at him as I stood and forced a lighter tone. “What will I do when the day comes you are off, settled and married and I’m alone with no one to be my date to events like this?”
For my 7 writer-nominees, I invite the following bloggers to join the fun and share a snip-it of your WIP in the 777 Challenge, but others are welcome to jump in, too. I look forward to getting hooked on your current WIP!
