I was tagged by the lovely Nicolette Elzie and the lovely Natalie K. to do the 7/7/7 snippet challenge – in other words find page 7 of your manuscript, scroll down 7 lines, and then share the next 7 lines in a blog post.
Then tag 7 other writers with blogs to continue the challenge.
This is from The Making of Gabriel Davenport, which is now in its final editor revisions, and will be flying the nest in 2016!
The house dozed, warmed by the sun and sleepy shadows cut across the floors from the odd shaped roof and internal walls. Everything was soft and golden and safe.
She shivered as she carefully closed Gabriel’s door. A cold draught licked at her ankles again and she didn’t have to search to know where it came from.
This was the ideal time to empty the suitcases and sort all the things they had bought on their holiday. The time management part of her brain whirred into action. Maybe Stu opened the window before he went off to work? But she couldn’t come up with a reason why.
Tagging the following talented writers/bloggers!
Please don’t feel pressured to do the tag, but if you do let me know so that I can devour your words!
