Novel Update #15: 777 Writing Challenge


Yesterday, I was surprised to see that I had been nominated to participate in an interesting writing challenge.

My dear blogger friend Susan Lattwein of Putting in a Good Word… selected me to participate in the 777 Writing Challenge.

Here are the rules:

“The 777 challenge requires you go to Page 7 of your work-in-progress, scroll down to Line 7 and share the next 7 sentences in a blog post. Once you have done this, you can tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their work-in-progress.”

What better way to help promote each other’s work than challenging a writer to offer up a snippet. It sounded like a little bit of fun.

So I am challenging 7 more individuals to join in. I have selected these fellow writers who have been faithful followers, bloggers I follow or admirers of my blog over time. They are:

1. Damyanti
2. John
3. Lesley Carter
4. David Ben-Ami
5. Julie Ann
6. Sierra Michaels
7. Elsie Bowen-Dodoo

I hope you will jump in and join the game and in turn, possibly nominate 7 more colleagues.

My current and ongoing work-in-progress is my novel Fallout.

The manuscript was completed last summer and this winter I passed it off to a professional editor. Once she had provided me with a detailed evaluation, I began work on the next thorough editing.

For the 777 Writing Challenge, I submit the following:

Part 1, Chapter 1: Page 7

“Oh man, I knew I should have gone with the Double Chocolate!”

“Huh?” Hannie asked perplexed.

“Nothing! Get Buddy on the line and see if he can get them to fix the graphics by the end of today. I’ll call Gerry and tell him the press kits are delayed again. God, he is not going to like that,” Mary said deeply massaging her face trying to rub the frustration away. “Oh and please Hann, please make sure that the digital kits are also corrected unlike last time.”

Hannie nodded. Mary took a deep breath and picked up the phone to call her client’s agent.

Obscure enough for you? Ha. Enjoy the challenge.
