The Lucky 7 Challenge..!


Thank you to my fun friends  Chris Longmuir, Carole Ann Carr and Susan Eliot Wright, who tagged me to take part in The Lucky 7 Challenge. They said the rules were simple and here they are: Go to page 77 of your current novel or WIP. Go to line 7. Copy the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs and post them as they’re written. Tag 7 more writers and let them know.
These 7 lines are taken from my current novel ‘Reaching for the Stars’


It wasn’t actually him, but rather a life-size cardboard cut-out. It took a while to regain her composure, but then she walked up to the image to poke her finger at it, and to wonder why a replica might be standing on the pavement looking angry and welding a very big knife.
Was he perhaps promoting a new restaurant without telling her?
Then, curiously, she noticed it advertised a website: www.mcduffhunting.com.
At the market, while buying herbs and olives for canapés, she saw a stall selling T-shirts. Amused, she bought one with the slogan The Hunt is On!


And in turn I’m tagging….
YOU – feel free to accept The Lucky 7 Challenge.

As usual, also feel free to leave a comment here, follow my blog, like my author Facebook page and follow me on Twitter. I'd love to hear from you!

See you next Friday…!
Love, Janice xx

Hi Janice, thanks for tagging me in this challenge. I do not normally participate in these and have a little badge on my blog. however if it is acceptable now I have the FB Extras page I could take part if I did it there? Do you think that would be ok?
