A Bit of Story

Kristin Creative sent out this challenge:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating.

4. Tag 7 authors. (I won't be tagging anyone but if you're game, please consider yourself tagged and let me know, I'd love to read it!)

Here's mine:

     Laila made no effort to fight or argue. She knelt, facing the servant and watched the glass come ever nearer.
     Chappy shifted uneasily behind the tree. He hoped the man would stumble, spilling the contents. But the servant moved surefooted to the center of the group and stopped beside Laila.
     Barthram took hold of the glass and held it up to the moonlight. The muddy substance turned a light gray.

NOTE: I just found out that Kelly Rae Roberts is offering half-off of her Taking Flight Business Course today until 11:30p.m.! She's an overnight Cinderella story that is generous with her knowledge. I've long been an affiliate with her because I believe in her beautiful art and her wonderful courses. IF you would be interested to find out more (and don't mind me getting a small commission): Click here to visit Kelly Rae Roberts LLC.


  1. I am so intrigued by this snippet! Chappy is such a great name for a character.


  2. What a great few lines, Catherine. I want to know what is in that glass!

  3. More! More!

    Laila. Chappy. Barthram. LOVE your character's names!
    And would LOVE to know Laila's story!

    If only my pg. 77, line 7 had landed on a scene I was in love with, rather than that which is destined to end my illustrious writing career before it's even begun. *g*


Thank you so much for your visit. I love hearing from you and dearly appreciate your comment!
