Sharing 7 Lines From the WIP

Back in 2015 I did the 777 Challenge. Though I wasn’t tagged in it this time, I thought I’d bring it back because 1) I barely talk about writing on here anymore and this blog needs to live up to its name and 2) it’s NaNoWriMo so what better time than to share some lines!

In this challenge you have to share seven lines from the seventh page of (one of) your WIP(s) and then tag 7 bloggers. This year I’m working on the same contemporary novel as last year, as school got in the way and I never got around to working on it. I really hope that this year I’ll be able to finish it. Fingers crossed!

Wow I forgot that the reason it’s called 777 challenge because you have to share seven lines from the seventh page of your WIP. I just chose some lines  I liked woops haha. While I would’ve liked to share that snippet, I’m going to stick to the rules so here are seven lines from the seventh page:

 

I don’t know about you but besides the Drew one this list is really me. Then again Yong Sun, the protagonist, is a lot like me.

I tag:

May | Kat | Eve | Charlotte | Holly | Marie | YOU!

If I tagged you don’t feel obligated to do this!

Are you participating in Camp NaNo? How’s it going? If you’re not participating, how’s the writing going anyway? Let me know in the comments!

Snippet Sunday Technically Monday But Sssh #4

To celebrate winning Camp NaNo I decided to share several snippets instead of the usual one today, but first:

Snippet Sunday is an awesome feature started by Samantha and this is how you participate:

  • You share a snippet of your current work in progress or whatever else you are working on. A scene, dialogue, a whole chapter, a poem – anything goes. 
  • Link your Snippet Sunday back to Samantha’s blog 
  • Ta da! Snippet Sunday complete

So while it’s technically Monday, go join in on the Snippet Sunday fun!


Snippet 1: messages between Yong Sun and Drew. I still need to figure out the formatting, but I didn’t want to focus too much on that during the first draft. Also it’s the evening before their trip to Rome so that’s what Reyna’s is referring to at the end

Snippet 2: It’s the first day of their school trip to Rome. Three out of four friends are already at the airport where their year group and teachers are meeting up.

I had completely forgotten about the Spongebob caveman meme but I’m definitely keeping it

Snippet 3:

Snippet 4: Yong Sun and Drew are in their hotel room, ready to go to sleep

snippet12

Snippet 5: Yong Sun and Drew are in their hotel room again, once again ready to sleep

snippet13

And that was my last snippet! There are sooo many more that I’d love to share, but they’re too important to the plot so

But I hope you enjoyed these!

If you participated in Camp NaNo, how did you do? Let me know in the comments!

Snippet Sunday #2

Sssh it’s probably still Sunday SOMEWHERE in the world right? I was just too tired to post when I got home yesterday and preferred to watch some Booktube and read. It’s only a few hours late though (almost 11 but ssh). Anyway, anyway, Snippet Sunday is an awesome feature started by Samantha and this is how you participate:

  • You share a snippet of your current work in progress or whatever else you are working on. A scene, dialogue, a whole chapter, a poem – anything goes. 
  • Link your Snippet Sunday back to Samantha’s blog 
  • Ta da! Snippet Sunday complete

I’ll be sharing a snippet from my unnamed contemporary WIP again, which is my project for Camp NaNo. Warning: profanity. Context: they’re in a classroom.

Snippet2

I never use profanity on my blog, but it felt wrong censoring it.

And that was my snippet for this week! How’s Camp Nano going? I realise I pretty much ask this whenever I mention Nano, but I really want to know how all of you are doing and support you and wish you good luck. YOU CAN DO IT.
