I don’t usually post extracts of my work on this blog. And I don’t usually do blog challenges. But I couldn’t resist this one!
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.

Yep. I know that’s only 3 people. I don’t have many friends!
