I got tagged for the challenge by a G+ buddy and thought I’d post up here for everyone to see. Not familiar with the challenge? Here are the rules
- Go to page 77 of your current manuscript (or 7 if it’s not long enough)
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next seven sentences, lines, or paragraphs – just as they are! No cheating people
- Tag 7 other authors
- Let them know
I’m using page 7 from the new YA SciFi I started a few weeks ago. I’m going with 7 lines. A little set up for you: Our heroine is walking home from school through the woods and has come across a shiny box and picked it up. We jump in mid paragraph:
There were only two sides without adornment and Jenna set one of those down on her palm and began rotating the cube to look at the other four sides. Two had blinking lights and buttons. Jenna decided not to touch any of those. The last two sides were the most intriguing. The seemed to be doors, or at least Jenna thought they were. But there was no handle, or catch, Jenna couldn’t even see a hinge. She tried pushing them with no luck.
Then suddenly the box began screeching and lifted itself off Jenna’s hand. Jenna jerked back in surprise. The box was just hanging there, opposite Jenna’s surprised eyes. She slowly reached a hand to touch it but the box moved out of reach.
“Well be that way,” Jenna muttered.
And here’s who I’m tagging:
Kia Zi Shiru
Sorry if I tagged someone who’s already done the challenge. It’s spinning through my circles like a six year old on a sugar high.
