The lovely Louise from My Other Book is a Tolstoy has issued a challenge. The Lucky 7 Challenge.
Here’s what you do:
Find a current work-in-progress of yours. Go to the 7th or 77th page , then to the 7th line of that page, and from there, copy and paste approximately seven lines and share them!
Now, I don’t have a 77th page of anything. I have too short an attention span to get any of my works-in-progress to that point, so I picked the 7th page from one of my random short stories. Here we go:
She gazed thoughtfully at the other girls. They each sat comfortably around her, some with their legs folded beneath them, others stretched straight out in front of them; Ruby had her feet drifting gently in one of the pools, as though hoping that the water would encourage scales to grow. Melia ran a finger along her own thigh. She could not remember having ever seen a woman with a tail; perhaps the woman in her dream was simply her mind creating a hybrid of her knowledge—a concealed memory of her mother combined with the false image of legs.
Confused yet? I don’t blame you.
Well, I had fun. So, who else wants to thrust seven lines of their unfinished, un-edited works into the harsh light of day for everyone to scrutinise? Stef, maybe? Or perhaps Katy? How about Mike or Chris? Who’s daring, I wonder…?
