I am very excited to have been selected for the 7/7/7 challenge! Thank you E. Rawls for selecting me 🙂 I also recommend that you check out E’s fantastic blog, filled with wonderful stories and inspiration, by clicking HERE!
So what is the 7/7/7 challenge? It is where you share a snippet from one of your recent WIP (Works In Progress.)
The rules are simple:
- Go to page 7 of your WIP (Or an older work that you have done and just love…I added this part 😉 )
- 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.
Here is my selection from my manuscript called Nexus Gate 4037: The Animal
One last kiss. Those were John’s last words to her, his last gesture before he disappeared within the Nexus. The words were drumming in her head, smothering her with the thick humid air that pushed at her. Tears blurred her eyes and her knee length white tunic tangled in between her legs. She fell hard. The impact jarred her joints and grass stains smeared the fabrics, but she pushed on.
She ran even faster, slowly picking up momentum, hardly catching her breath. How had he gotten lost?”
This story is a 3 part series with a 4th stand alone follow-up novel. I am currently in Second Draft mode for Book 1: The Animal, with maybe a third of Book 2 written and patches of book 3 jotted down. Even the fourth novel has parts saved on file here and there. This story is a Science Fiction, Suspense, Thriller.
Below are my Nominees for this challenge:
