Hello, readers! About a million years ago (March), Hannah tagged me in a fun writing challenge. A while later, though, my childhood laptop gave up the struggle and temporarily trapped all of my files.
I was without Microsoft Word for a month. It was terrible.
But this latest blog post comes to you from my brand new grown-up laptop, and I'm rearing to get back to blogging and writing! And so I can finally complete the 777 writing challenge.
The 777 challenge requires you 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 you have done this, you can tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their work-in-progress
So without further ado, I present seven lines from my current work-in-progress: The Undying... a fairy story told from the perspective of the fairies. (I've included eight lines to provide context for the section.)
have to leave for Titania soon,” Peaseblossom warned her. “I don’t mean when we feel like it. I mean—“ she struggled for some concept of
measuring time—“the next time we open our eyes, we’ll have to go find Titania.”
“Well, then,” Gloriana said, leaning
back. Her hair cushioned her. “Let’s sleep for a hundred years.”
And maybe they did. Fairies do not sleep lightly. They do not dream the dreams of innocents.
It bothered Peaseblossom sometimes,
the memories that returned when she slept.
Little things, like needles poking into her skin. She never remembered them when she awoke.
I hope you've enjoyed this little tidbit, readers! I won't tag anyone in particular, but feel free to play along in the comments!
