777 Writer’s Challenge… Oh my!

DSC00565 (1)You guessed it folks. I’ve been tagged on, the 777 Writer’s Challenge… Thanks Diane! (Grr!) ๐Ÿ˜€

Actually, it’s been so long since I took up a challenge, so long in fact that when the lovely Diane (Fantasy Author) from Myths in the Mirrorย tagged me to take on, The 777 Writer’s Challenge, I couldn’t really say, “no,” despite knowing that this would become quite a challenging task for me.

Oh come on, Kev! Spare us the procrastination and the worried looks (he can be such a drama queen folks!) All you’ve got to do is go to the 7th page of you’re work in progress, go to line 7, copy and paste the following 7 sentences into a blog post, and nominate 7 people you want toย inflict the same curse uponย Er, I mean, nominate for the same wonderful opportunity… How challenging can it be?

Well, I’m glad you asked! (Hey, enough of the drama… although, I do like being referred to as royalty ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Where was I? Oh yes… How challenging can it be?



You see, it’s like this…

For one, I happen to have a couple of works in progress, and the one I’m mainly working on is being written under a pseudonym. So, I was in kind of a jumble as to what to do. Then it hit me!(The book I was reaching for at the time, from my top shelf, that is.) That’s when I decided to choose my sentences from a memoir I am also working on:

A Brit in America

Ana told me that no sooner had I left to use the bathroom he had asked her why she was with a gringo. I said, I know, and we laughed about it. We were still laughing when he returned. The fool never caught on. Needless to say, we got another realtor.

Even though we did find it amusing at the time, I have to ask: How bad can it get when even a damn realtor has to question a relationship? Were we the only interracial couple heโ€™d ever encountered or something?

There you have it folks, completely unedited, first draft. I can tell you this… there is no way, this is going to be in the same place when I’m done in with this memoir. It’ll be in a completely different chapter, and much later on in the book. I wrote what was in my mind at the time and I know you folks know exactly what I’m talking about here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And my seven nominees are:

Thanks again, Diane!

  1. I am happy that you understand, and did you liked my little piece about my book?

    Blessings to you and have a great weekend


  2. Kev,
    I never do something like that, and never like to involve other writers.
    I have put my foot too many times already in peoples mouth, so will never do it again.
    But here is my 7 lines:

    Suddenly Pajaro jumped but kept sitting.
    โ€˜Whatโ€™s the matter,โ€™ Crayn called out.
    โ€˜I just…โ€™ But he didnโ€™t finish. He turned around and stared into Tamoโ€™s grey eyes who stood behind him with Tima close by and Talon at her side. They never had heard them coming. Tamo had pocked him into his back with his beak.
    โ€˜Tamo,โ€™ Pajaro said, โ€˜did you hear us speaking about the ashes of Elcano and want to say something as well?โ€™ He showed Tamo the box he had on his lap.

    • Fair enough, Gigi. I never expect anyone to do anything they don’t feel comfortable with. I apologise that’s what happened here, and truly appreciate your response to it. Thanks for sharing what you have. Blessings to you, Gigi. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thanks so much for the nomination, Kev. I’ve recently completed this one, but I’ll dig into another WIP to put something together.
    I liked your snippet. Then again, I might be partial as I work in real estate, LOL!


    • Hi Mae… sounds great. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh dear… bet you never openly questioned the relationship of your clients, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰
