I am excited to participate in the 777 Writer’s Challenge and the invitation was extended by a generous fellow blogger Kay Morris.
The rules are:
- I am to go to the 7th page of my Work-in-progress.
- Find the 7th sentence on that page, and then paste the following 7 sentences into my blog post.
- Select 7 other writers for the challenge!
Without any hesitation, I am very passionate about writing but I am still a fledgling on this chosen part that I thread on, so it is a bit daunting and with slight trepidation that I will be posting something from a novel which I am still brewing.
It’s a challenge which I reckon will toughen my writing backbone some more. Two drafts from my first two novels are 70% done and I am looking for the push to complete at least one of them before the end of November.
No one has perused these work at all; not even a sentence, so I bare the 7th page, the 7th sentence and the following 7 sentences into my post for you:
I was not yet a confirmed convict resigned to fate in prison, and I felt that telling an incomplete story was pure bad luck.
I felt that maybe not talking about it would make the nightmare of incarceration go away.
I spent my time in desperate ennui and missing my daughter left such a hollow feeling. Even though I knew that she would be safe with my sister, I had no doubt that she must be in a complete state of turmoil.
Her fractured, struggling mind would be unable to process such calamitous situation. Blessing and I had never been apart for more than a couple of hours since I gave birth to her almost six years ago, more so because of her health condition.
I silently wondered what would become of my daughter if I were to get stuck behind bars.
I would like to encourage the following bloggers whom I picked randomly, to join the fun and participate in the 777 Challenge:
I look forward to reading excerpts of your work in progress.
