The 777 Challenge.

The rules of this challenge are to go to your current writing project, scroll or flip to the 7th page, go down to the 7th line, and then share the next 7 lines.
I have two writing projects at the moment: my fantasy novel and my Camp NaNoWriMo novel. Since I was tagged twice, I will take the opportunity to share seven lines from each!
Thank for tagging me Jenelle and DJ!

Fantasy story (this is technically eight lines, but I couldn't stop in the middle of a sentence, could I?):

[He was] just starting to lose his good form to sumptuous dinners [and] needed someone to compliment himself and give him an heir. She had to be beautiful, young, and ready to obey her husband. She had to be a princess, of course, and she had to be a little exciting. And what was more exciting than a rescued princess? reasoned King John. So, he poured over the Royal Magazine's pages about missing princesses and weighed his options.

Camp NaNoWriMo (for which I am writing a Daniel and Varina story. You can find out more about them in this post from 2013):

“You shouldn’t have put what off so long?” Varina asked.
“Telling you…” Daniel said.
“Telling me what?” Varina pressed.
Daniel sighed again. “Telling you that I have to go home. I have to go back to London.”
“My father is recalling me.”

As you can see, I have no qualms about stopping in the middle of a question. 
I tag whoever wants to do this tag.

Live long and prosper!

  1. Wait, we'll never know? Now that is a real cliff hanger.

    Thanks for sharing from your work, Abbey!
