Seven Lines Challenge

For this challenge, you’re supposed to go to page 7 of your WiP, count down 7 lines, share 7 lines or sentences, and then tag 7 other writers.

I was tagged by ellDimensional on Tumblr, and I posted a bit from my main WiP there, but here’s a slice from my secondary WiP, HEDGEHOG’S DILEMMA, which I’m writing totally by the seat of my pants.


Out of sheer laziness, and because there was no other club whose members actually left her alone, Holly  had chosen the FFA. The students teased her about that, too, saying that instead of showing prized Holstein heifers, they could just show Holly at the local student competition.

Holly preferred the crops aspect of the FFA, which enabled her to get lost in the scent of the dirt, the feel of the grit under her fingernails, and the occasional taste of pesticide if she happened to have her mouth open while someone was spraying it, which was often.

The club met outside in front of the school, where they were tending a box of moribund pansies.


I didn’t tag anyone on Tumblr because I don’t have too many friends there, but I tag the following bloggers: Adventures in Writing, Invisible Ink, E on Publishing, Scribbling in the Storage Room, Ally Cat with a Pen, Tara Is a Rock Star, and Anthony Lee Collins. I understand that some of you may not have a writing-related WiP, but I’m tagging you anyway because you’re awesome. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the tag, and I’ll definitely do this (last week was a little crazy). I’m in the middle of a few different projects, all mostly at the note-making stage, but I’ll come up with something.

    Your excerpt makes me think of that old Groucho Marx line: “I would never want to be a member of any club that would have somebody like me as a member.” 😉
