I was kindly tagged by Harliqueen to take part in Lucky 7. It’s a fun blogging exercise to help writers get snippets of their work out there and I haven’t done anything like this before so I thought I should give it a go. I’m sure any writer can relate to the fear of putting stuff out there before we’ve had time to tirelessly tweak and polish it but I’m all for trying new things. The guidelines are as follows:
• Go to page 7 (or 77) of your current WIP.
• Scan down to line 7.
• Post the next 7 lines or sentences on your blog.
• Tag 7 people to carry on the challenge.
So, without further ado, here is a tiny snapshot from my WIP, False Awakening, in all the glamour you’d expect from an unedited first draft.
“I think…” Abi paused as she gasped for more air. “I think I remembered something.”
Before either of her friends could speak, two police officers in full uniform walked in through the open doorway.
“What are you two doing in here?” asked one of them. Male, tall and inherently intimidating; his ice-cold eyes moved from Dan to Luke as he swept into the room like a cool breeze. “We specifically told you not to speak with the victim until we had questioned her.”
The word victim made Abi’s stomach squirm again.
Ooooh, mysterious! 😉
I’ve seen quite a lot of the bloggers I follow tagging and posting with regards to this challenge, so for the sake of avoiding repeat tags; in the spirit of wanting to include everyone and perhaps through just a little dash of laziness, I’m going to say that if you are reading this and have a WIP you’d like to share with us, I hereby tag you to take part. I’m always intrigued to find out what everyone else is up to! Thanks for reading and I hope to see your Lucky 7 soon.
