First things first – my current project. Mishka Jenkins kindly included me in a little game called Lucky 7. Here are the rules of the challenge:
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current WIP.
Go to line 7
Post on your blog the next 7 sentences or 7 lines —as they are!
Tag 7 people and do the same.
You can choose between page 7 or 77.
The following is taken from page 7, line 7, and, yes, you guessed it, has 7 lines.
“Protected me from what exactly?” I asked, rising to walk to her.
She didn’t answer right away. She took my hand and traced a fingertip over the scar on my forearm. “From the people who would hurt you because of who you are.”
My heart began to thud in my chest. Not because I was afraid of what or who was coming for me, my father had prepared me for that. It was the thought of losing my identity that terrified me the most.
For the game to continue, I must tag seven others, so here they are:
Some of the people I’ve tagged might not be in the middle of writing, editing or polishing a novel, so in the spirit of inclusion, if you want to take part – use line 7 from your WIP and give us 7 wonderful lines of whatever that project may be 🙂
That’s it as far as the game goes, I hope you enjoyed the little snippet.
But, before you go, I would like to ask your advice about the cover for my upcoming novel Hands of Evil. I’m having real issues creating a cover I’m happy with, and since I don’t have time for a course on graphic design, I’ve had to fumble my way through some of the editing software out there. I’d be grateful for any feedback you can give.
Thanks for reading.
