My dear writing/blogging/pretty-much-everything buddy, Deborah O'Carroll, tagged me for the 777 Writing Challenge. I was thrilled. This tag seems to be floating all across the blogsphere and looked way too much fun. Plus, 7 happens to be one of my favorite numbers. Fun-ness all around. I’m so excited to be doing it! Thank you, Celti dear! <3
Go to page 7 of your work-in-progress,
scroll down to line 7,
and share the next 7 lines in a blog post.
Once finished, tag 7 bloggers to do the writing challenge themselves on their own blog.
We’re going to assume lines means sentences? Hopefully I do this right.
As I’m sure you all know, my current WIP is Burning Thorns, my Beauty and the Beast retelling that was once a novella and is now being transform into a novel. The snippet I landed on happens to be the very first words Rose and the Beast say to each other, their first meeting. So it worked out quite well. As a background, Rose just stumbled into the Beast’s rose garden after a very frightening ordeal. The Beast doesn’t know what to think about a human appearing in the dark Forest of the fae. . .
"Please don't hurt me."
The Beast staggered back and snatched his wide hood closer around his face, grateful for the darkness of the night.
A human? A human here, in the Forest? A female human?
"What are you doing here?" he barked, keeping his head low.
"I—I had nowhere else to go," she squeaked.
Their first meeting wasn’t with the happiest of circumstances. Hee.
