Go to page 7 of your work-in-progress, scroll down to line 7, and share the next 7 lines in a blog post. Once finished, tag 7 bloggers to do the writing challenge themselves on their own blog.
As I write this, I’ve just been to a day of writer’s workshops that makes me realize that in my active current WIP, I need to rewrite the beginning so that one (or two) of the characters who is dead is actually alive and one (or two…) of the characters that are alive are actually dead, and I haven’t decided which is which yet.
That being said, I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with the seventh page yet and it may get moved around very soon, so I am going to my inactive current WIP, which I’m hoping to work on all of July.
It’s totally out of context and only 0.66% of the entire WIP (of 17,000 words). If I did it to my active current WIP, it would be 0.16% (of 69,000 words). So, in a way, you’re getting a little more bang for your buck with this version.
“Let’s not worry about that right now,” Silverhand replied. “For now, let’s just focus on getting the girl to the fairy, and with any luck we’ll be able to cure Derren and it will be like this never happened.”
They were silent for a few minutes, so I continued forward and slid into the enclose, balancing the clothes precariously.
“Here,” I said, passing Bai her share of the clothes. “I hope they fit.”
“It would be incredibly surprising if they did,” Silverhand said, and he smirked at me, as if he knew. Perhaps he did, I thought. I didn’t like the thought of that at all, but Bai didn’t seem to recognize our silent battle.
And now I shall challenge you people!

(And by the way, don’t let me throw off your groove—if you want to do this tag, feel free to steal it! It’s just that those are seven people who I know are writers and I have their urls memorized.)
