7/7/7 for The Project Formerly Known as High-Stakes

Because Michella apparently wants me to suffer through reading parts of my first draft before I need to, she tagged me for the 7/7/7 challenge.

GUIDELINES FOR THE 7/7/7 CHALLENGE:

  • Go to page 7 of your WIP (Work in Progress)
  • Scroll down to line 7
  • Share next 7 sentences in a blog post
  • After the excerpt, tag 7 other writers (or however many you’re able to) to continue the challenge

Okay, are you ready for this, everyone? It’s going to be good. Here’s an awkward family reunion for you all:

Crap. He’s coming upstairs. Abort, abort. I crawl backwards across the carpet, still clutching the bat tightly. Just as I near my bedroom door, he reaches the top of the stairs. I stand up, bat ready.
“Benjy?” he says.

Spoiler alert: that’s a family member. Not the best way to greet someone you haven’t seen in three years, Benjy!

Thank you for this lovely challenge, Mic. If I had more friends writing manuscripts, I would have more people to tag, so for now I’ll settle for tagging:

Alright, I suppose I should go do something productive now. Bonsoir, my friends!

  1. “What? What is it?” I demanded.
    He didn’t respond right away, but I could hear him madly typing.
    “Derek, talk to me.” I turned right as soon as I could, almost slamming headlong into one of the squad cars he’d mentioned. I sped off. “Derek!”
