The 777 Challenge

Thanks to Ritu for remembering me and challenging me to this challenge.  I’ve been sick for a while (since late-July) so I couldn’t and didn’t do much on WP.  Sickness might be a minor (and coincidental) theme of mines since I have a chapter called “Sick” and some sick articles I posted, like dog eating.

Anyway, going back to the challenge the lovely Ritu challenged me to, from her post, we are unearthing an unfinished post from the 7th page, go to the 7th line (or 7th post), and share the next 7 sentences from it.  Then challenge 7 others.

Here goes.  As it happens, it’s from the next chapter of my novel!

The elevator ride was quiet.  When it opened at the 37th floor, Bigger got out first and opened JZ’s door.  JZ took her to his room and sat on his bed with her still in his arms.  One of you call Deng and ask her where she is and what she’s able to buy.  Leave my baby’s stuff by the door then you can leave.”

“Deng said that the only place open at the time she left was the hardware store and she bought some rope.  She would have to get the mask and handcuffs tomorrow.”

Stay hungry.

Here are the next 7 challengers:

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
