777 Writer’s Challenge

Good evening folks!

The dashing Kev has tagged me with a challenge which, judging from his response, evokes amusing results!

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, pretty challenging I have to admit!  Just like Kev, I’m working on a few projects at the moment and had to pick very wisely in case I shocked readers out of their seats with teasers from my new books.  Do I go for the sweet children’s books or delve into the darker regions of unmentionable scripts half-baked, half-written and probably unloved by their half-mad creator?!  

Without wanting to disappointment Kev…oh and you, my lovely readers, I’ve gone ahead and chosen from A Tale of Knots.  It hasn’t gained popularity because of its sad cover that is desperately awaiting a makeover, covering a great story hidden within.  So I’m giving my poor little story a little publicity here with the 777 challenge.

With a gentle nudge, Ash shoved Babylock on his way.  As he closed his tired eyes, he prayed Babylock would find LeBrush in time.”


Once upon a time, there was a rather special town called Knotsville.  Now the people of Knotsville were a lovely bunch. They worked hard together, weaving and plaiting to make beautiful designs. They sold or displayed their work in other towns. 

Unfortunately, their nice nature left them open to attack!”

    Thank you for the offer, however, I have nothing put together… it’s all on note cards at this time, so I cannot follow through. ;(


  2. Why thank you Mello. I promise I will get to it, but it might take a couple of weeks.
    Loved your 777.
    Great big hug.


  3. Hi Eloise! This challenge sounds like fun. Thanks so much for thinking of me. I’ll get right to it. Why don’t you share a chapter from “A Tale of Knots”? Your excerpt made me curious. 😉 xx
