There have been a few of these going around, and I love them 🙂 The 777 challenge is pretty simple, you take a 7 line extract from your current WIP writing. You go to page 7, down to line 7, and then take the next 7 lines.
If anyone else has this on their blog please let me know in the comments section below.
A couple of links to those I have enjoyed…
My current WIP is a Sci-fi series. Book one is being edited now (extract taken from book one), Book two is drafted and ready for edit, and Book three is in rough draft / planning stage.
Hope you enjoy! 🙂
