777 Challenge – Tears Welled in Her Eyes

It has been ages since someone tagged me for this kind of challenge, but just last week Tiyana White tagged me on Twitter and I couldn’t resist taking part.

I had been participating in a month long challenge about one of my WIP, #CharactersTell (more on that later on) and I twitted about my characters from THE FROZEN MAZE, so of course I thought about posting a excerpt from it.

Here’s the drill: Share 7 lines of your WIP. Start at line 7. Tag 7 more

I have to say I’m not a fan of the 7 lines my challenge fell upon, but people on Twitter seemed to appreciate them enough, and so I thought I’d share them with you too.

As a side note, I am indeed working at THE FROZEN MAZE and am aiming to start publishing it next September, if everything goes smoothly. I’m trying to put to good use all the research I’ve done for my AtoZ Challenge.

Tears welled in her eyes. Her chest ached. She never thought about Dad when she went about her busy life in Berlin and she almost wished she was there now. Thinking about him made her feel so miserable, so lonely.

Before she knew it, she walked out and over to the next corridor. She went to a door she knew well. She had just the time to fear it would be locked, when it gave in. The studio was darkened, but it smelled clean, like the rest of the house. Ingeborg didn’t need any lights. She remembered the little room very well.

And since I’m here, let me tag 7 fellow writers from the 1920s Book Club.

Shari Decter Hirst

Denitta Ward

Michelle Cox

Christopher Hawes

Chrystyna K. Lucyk-Berger

Jenny Leo

Michael B. Weeks

You know what? I’ve done a few challenges on Twitter about my  WIPs lately, so I thought, why not sharing them on my blog too? Twitter WIP challanges are fun. They are normally a series of questions which invite to share ideas about your characters and your story and often it occasions reflection I hadn’t done before.

I’ve done something about all of my current WIPs

Ghost Trilogy – feels like ages since I last touched
The Frozen Maze – I’m working at it at the moment, stay tuned!
Bones of the Titans – Currently on hold, but certainly not forgotten

Don’t go away!!!!!!

777 is a challenge were we post seven lines from our WIP, starting on page 7. My seven lines are very rough, but I like the idea of sharing what I'm writing right now. This is from my new novella, The Frozen Maze, set in 1920s Germany
