The 777 Challenge!

Here’s my snippet for the 777 challenge issued by the lovely Jazzfeathers 😉

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.

Worst of all, everyone else adored the little brat. Even Mrs. Lancier showed him more tenderness than she ever did to me. She always carried him around on one hip, and talked to him sweetly.

I’d never enjoyed being coddled. I was a Blane, and we deserved only the most decorous respect. Though Castor was young, he didn’t behave like a son of our esteemed name.

I avoided my infuriating brother whenever I could, and spent most afternoons outside, training my mastiff to fetch and retrieve.

  1. Holly, sorry I’m dropping by only now. It’s been a strange week.
    I like your snipet, It has a air of completness about it and I think it gives a good impression of Silas.

    Well done 😉

    1. Thank you! He’s a really fun character. From here on out, the chapters are going to get wild. Secret love affairs, family scandals, betrayals, and occult intrigue, with lots of shiny technology and deco-licious settings and costumes.
