The LUCKY 777 Writing Challenge

Silver wins big with the 777 Writing Challenge!

I have been tagged by Michelle Rene, of Book Cover Design and Illustration by Michelle Rene to participate in the 777 Writing Challenge. If you are looking for a book cover design or an illustrator for your book, you will want to check out her blog!

The rules of the 777 Writing Challenge are as follows:

‘The 777 challenge requires you go to Page 7 of your work-in-progress, scroll down to Line 7 and share the next 7 sentences in a blog post. Once you have done this, you can tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their work-in-progress.

Without further ado… here is a portion of my WIP book – “The Swamp Fairy,” per the rules:

… Abby stood there, her mouth agape, with a silly grin plastered on her face. She was dumbfounded. There were fairies living in the swamp, wondered Abby? Pictures flashed rapidly into her mind, of the road she walked each morning to catch the school bus. She could see the swamp, split in two by Lillian Road, all wild and natural, filling both sides of the road with bushes and trees hanging with vines.

Savanna Brooks is my best friend, Abby reasoned quickly in her thoughts. Her father was a building contractor, and he was building a new housing area right where the swamp fairy had said. How could the swamp fairy know this, she mused?

I would like to nominate: Ronovan Writes, Lisa Morrow Books, Pearls Before Swine, Teagan’s Books, John W. Howell, Thoughts By Mello-Ello, and last, by not least, Melissa Barker-Simpson.

Thanks to all my nominees! I can’t wait to read what you are going to write!

Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait until I see you all again!




          1. That is really very thoughtful, Colleen. I also think most people would have their struggles if I quoted my lates manuscript since it is in German… lol


          2. My grandparents spoke a mix of German/Russian. I grew up in a town that spoke lots of German. Ich bin Colleen. LOL! Danke. Stile Nacht. See, I only know a few. Oh, and scheise, and liebschen. My maiden name was: Steinle which my Ukrainian friend was spelled: Shteynle in the Russian immigration documents. 😀

  1. Great excerpt. I’ve seen this one doing the rounds and I think I was tagged but didn’t know what to do. The books that I’m getting published in the next few books I don’t consider works in progress and other stuff are things I haven’t work on for a long time and not sure are the ones I’ll be working on next so… I might start it going in a few months and catch everybody by surprise! Have a great Tuesday!
