Hello friends! This morning, I was nominated for the 7/7/7 Challenge by my lovely CP (critique partner) Akshaya. I’ve decided to start publicising this blog on social media a bit more, so this is potentially the first glimpse a lot of you will get of my writing/the reason why I pretty much live as a hermit outside of uni and work. Which is both exciting and weird…
Guidelines for the 7/7/7 Challenge
- Go to page 7 of your WIP (work in progress).
- Scroll down to line 7.
- Share the 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.
Excerpt from ‘Return Fire’, my futuristic urban fantasy
In this except, my main character, Neve, has just captured a mage, and is waiting for a pickup. In a very public location…
“Seriously?” I demanded. “You don’t have anything better to do than stare at me?”
I knew it wasn’t just me they wanted to see.
Mages were still a novelty. Still good to gawk at, and snap pictures of to show disbelieving friends and family members. And Hunters like me weren’t so different – we were also new and exciting. But we were still human, and the same couldn’t be said for the mages. Still, you’d think that eighteen months would be enough time for the public to get used to them.
Seeing as many of my writerly friends have already been nominated, I think I’ll just bully a few people in my uni course about starting their own blogs… You know who you are.
Anyhoo, thanks for reading – hope you liked the excerpt/were intrigued by it!
