7 Line Challenge

7 Line Challenge

Thanks a bunch to Louise West for tagging me for this blog-hop. This is my first and I'm guessing a few people out there will never have seen one before, so, for the uninitiated- here's the deal.

I'm about to post seven lines from page seven of my work in progress... "Saratoga"  Exciting stuff! I will tag seven (hopefully!) other writers who will, in turn, do the same on their blogs. I suggest you click on the links and check them out.

OK- here it is!


Father was there within a few minutes, walking around the tangled mess, scratching his jaw, trying to figure out a way to get me down. He tried ladders, but they just sunk into the tall grass as though it were warm butter. He chopped at it a few times with his garden shears, but it just grew back underneath me. It refused to let me down.
I leaned forward, tears in my eyes. “Maybe I could just climb down?” I ask them.
“No,” Father replies. “Stay where you are, we’ll get you down. I don’t want you to-”
But it was too late. I had leaned too far over the edge, the edge near the cement patio.

Tag! You're it!

This is your mission:  Go to line 7 on either page 7 or page 77 of your manuscript and do a post with the next 7 lines, then tag 7 people to keep the challenge going! This a short and savvy way to see what others out there in the blogosphere are writing.


  1. Ooh, nice seven lines. I'm about to go and dig mine up now. Hopefully they'll actually makes some sense. ;-)

    1. Thanks! I'm excited to see my tag-ee's work :)

  2. I did this one a while back and it was a lot of fun reading short snippets of people's works. :)


  3. Thanks for the shout-out! This looks really interesting- let me know when it's ready as I'd definitely be up for reading it xxx
