It’s Friday, which is always a happy day!! 🙂 It’s also Pioneer Day here in Utah, which I like to think of as Utah’s Special Extra Fourth of July-ish Holiday! I think it’s to celebrate when the pioneers first came to Utah… Something like that, I’m a little (by which I mean A LOT) fuzzy on my state history… But, we basically do the same things as the Fourth: Fireworks, parade, day off, etc! Well, not that I intentionally meant to post something special today, but I have something very different from what I usually write/post and it happens to be the 7/7/7 Challenge!!
You guys have probably heard me talk (too much) about my latest project, a YA high fantasy book I’ve been calling OUT OF THE WOODS and/or my Faery Story. Well, today I’m going to share an excerpt from it!! (So thank goodness I can share my revised chapter and not my ridiculously god-awful first draft one! 🙂 )
So what is the 7/7/7 Challenge, you ask?? Well, ask no more!! Here’s what it is!!
GUIDELINES FOR THE 7/7/7 CHALLENGE:
- Go to page 7 of your WIP (Work in Progress)
- Scroll down to line 7
- Share next 7 sentences in a blog post
- After the excerpt, tag 7 other writers (or however many you’re able to) to continue the challenge
Okay, sorry guys, but I’m going to cheat. I’m going to be doing 6/7/7! There happens to be a super huge spoiler on page 7 and so… Well, enough said! There’s a spoiler!
Anyways, in this excerpt, Faelan is being taken to this man who might have information for him by his spy companion Rythen.
Faelan shifted his shoulders, grateful for the dimming heat. “How did you find this man?”
Rythen cast a sideways glance at him from under his hood, a hint of a grin poised on his lips. “I have my charms, Faelan. They can get me anywhere.”
Faelan let out a small snort. “Strange it took you almost two months,” he countered.
I feel like that was weird excerpt that did absolutely nothing… But there you have it!! And since this was such fun post to do (Oof, that sounded sarcastic, but I swear, I’m being serious–I really did have fun!!!) I’m going to nominate some other lovely writers to join in!! Sooooo…
Well thanks for reading!! Hope you enjoyed!! 🙂
