I've been tagged for this challenge by a couple of different people. The challenge rules are:
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.
This challenge is a get what you get kind of thing. The section could land within a transition or the middle of dialog. This is from my work in progress called The Playground. My victim character, Chloe, is speaking with her creepy doll, Sandra, about visiting chat rooms and social networks.
“You can accept the request from earlier today,” Sandra said.
“Who was it?”
“Belinda is a girl who attends Jimmy Carter Elementary. Her doll's name is Trilly. Her favorite thing is the Playground Network.”
“That's over near the mall. Yes, I want to make friends with Belinda and Trilly.”
“Trilly is online right now. Belinda wants to talk to you.”
There you have it. With seven random lines you don't get the context, so I'm going to fill you in. The Playground Network is a social network for children. It's been placed in dolls, plush toys, and things to appeal to kids. The network is pure evil, and a madman is trying to raise his own army within our homes.
According to the rules, I can tag seven other writers to run with the 777 challenge. It doesn't say I must tag seven other writers. This thing orbited the planet pretty fast. Most of my friends have already been tagged by now.
It's kind of a cop out not to tag others, but I'm up against the wall here. Unless one of my writer friends has multiple works in progress, they can't play round two. My short stories didn't fit within the parameters either. Feel free to take the challenge and run with it.
