Here are the rules of the 7-7-7 Challenge:
Go to the 7th page of your work in progress. Find the 7th sentence on that page, then paste the following 7 sentences into your blog post. Finally, select 7 other writers for the challenge. It does not have to be fiction, I am interested in reading anything you’ve got!
I don’t have a current novel, as I am anxiously awaiting the start of NaNoWriMo. So I chose a previous NaNo novel at random, and here is my excerpt from the 7th page of Deathbringer:
“Eli. Seriously. This goes deeper than just Warwick. Everyone is gunning for me. Vampires, werewolves… probably even leprechauns. I’m taking a huge risk just letting YOU in here.”
“FOCUS, Eli. They—“ she stopped, and her eyes lit up like she had an idea. She disappeared into her bedroom for a few minutes, returning with a wand-like thing, which she started waving over me.
“Okay, Miss Airport Security- I do not have any bombs on me.”
“Which is fine, because I’m not looking for bombs.” She said as she travelled down my body with the wand thing. Once done- she proceeded to check the room.
“Okay. Then what ARE you looking for?”
“Bugs. Electronic eavesdropping devices. Just because they are following you, doesn’t mean they aren’t using other means to track or listen to us.”
I was nominated by the lovely afthead. Unfortunately- I don’t actually have any nominees; as most of my blogging friends have either already been recently nominated, OR aren’t novelists. (I was about to say they aren’t writers, but to blog is to write. So they aren’t as wordy as some of the rest of us! *wink*) But- if you’re reading this and want to participate- consider yourself nominated! I’d love to read your excerpts!
