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 Mirror 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 to
inflict the same curse upon 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 😀 ) 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 he’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. 😉
And my seven nominees are:
Thanks again, Diane!
