I’ve been tagged on the 7/7/7 Challenge again – twice! Rachael Ritchey and Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff both nominated me for a new go-round. And even though I took on the challenge last fall, now is a good time to do it again because of the revisions I’ve been working on.
The rules of the 7/7/7 Challenge are super-simple:
- 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.
Last time I took seven lines from Chapter 7 of TKC. This time, I’ll follow the challenge verbatim. Here are seven (very crucial) lines from Page 7 of Draft #2 of TKC:
A hunting trap laid on the ground, its jaws of jagged iron teeth as black as night clamped shut.
A long-forgotten anger rose like bile in my throat. Only one race in the Great Isle used iron hunting traps – and they had no reason whatsoever to set foot in our forest.
“Eva!” Doni’s voice startled me. He landed and ran to my side. Keli was not far behind.
Kind of spoiler-ish, but I liked this excerpt so much that I couldn’t not share it! 😉
