777 Writing Challenge – Heartseeker & KW2

Claire M. Banschbach tagged me for the 777 Writing Challenge awhile back, so I thought I’d do it! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the nomination, Claire!

And thanks Shantelle for letting me know! πŸ˜‰ By the way, everyone — on a writing related note, Shantelle is looking for beta-readers for a Cinderella-ish novella, and I know from reading another of her works that she writes beautiful stories! ❀ So if that sounds up your alley, do drop by her lovely blog!

Anyways, back to all the 7’s…

777 Writing Challenge

The rules of this challenge are as follows: you go to page 7 of your work-in-progress, scroll down to line 7 and share the next 7 lines in a blog post, and tag 7 bloggers to do the writing challenge themselves on their own blogs with their own WIPs.

I’m interpreting “lines” as “sentences”, even though I’m not sure if that’s exactly what it meant…

And I’m working on two books, so here is a snippet from each!

The Secret of Kedran’s Wood

Lavender blinked several times. β€œTare knows someone?”

β€œMore importantly: someone knows Tare?” Baz said.

β€œAre you sure about this?” Ivy asked.

Jake nodded vigorously, and Marie said, β€œYeah. We thought it was weird that someone would ask after him randomly. Especially since, before that, I wasn’t entirely sure if this Tare person really existed.”

β€œOh, he is verrry existent,” Baz said. β€œYou don’t even know how much he exists. …When he’s here, that is.”


It was a tumultuous mixture of heartrending emotion with aching sorrow at the core, shattering her, and the only thing she could think to do with it was to run up these stairs and speak with Prince Haldon.

She reached the top, where she barely paused to catch her breath before flinging the door open. She stood in the doorway, breathing hard. The room was unusually dark, for the evening was getting on and only the last rays of sunset shone through the westward window, and a single candle burned in a holder on a table across the chamber by a canopied bed.

In a chair halfway into the room, facing away from the window, a figure sprawled. The darkened room made it hard to see him, and Princess Evanna only got a vague impression of dark clothes and long dark hair. His face was in shadow, and he did not turn the whole way to look at herβ€”indeed, he gave no movement or impression that he had even noticed her.


So there are the snippets of the day — I hope they were at least a teeny bit interesting! I had so much fun doing this! Thanks again for tagging me, Claire! ❀

And for the last part…

I Tag:








(Y’all obviously don’t have to do it if you don’t want. πŸ˜‰ And I don’t think any of you have done it before… but if you have, sorry!) Alternately, anyone who might be doing Camp NaNo, you could use your Camp story! πŸ˜€

And anyone reading this: if you’d like, feel free to snag the tag yourself and do it on your blog!

If you do it, let me know in the comments so I can read your beautiful words! πŸ™‚

  2. Aaaahhhh! I love thissss! I’ve never seen this one before. What a fun idea. And yours turned out PERFECTLY. Those were such great lines for it to land on. I feel like the KW one kind of sums up the book. XD AND THE HEARTSEEKER ONE. *FLAAAAILS* Every single time I get a taste of that book it reminds my how much I want to read it. The WRITING, Celti! IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL! Just…wow. I so want to know exactly what’s going on there! *more flailing*

    Thank you soooo much for tagging me. This looks like such fun! I’m going to try my best to do it sometime. *nods, nods*

    • Oh really? I keep seeing it go around… Well, it’s high time you got to do it, then! XD You’re welcome! I can’t wait to see yours if you do it. ^_^

      And thank youuuu! ❀ ^_^ Every time you get excited about Heartseeker I just want to flail around and squee! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ *fuzzy feels* Haha, it does sort of sum up KW doesn't it. πŸ˜› Silly darlings. And I know! It's cool when things end up in just the right spot to be perfect!


  3. Ooh, I love the snippets! Especially the Kedran’s Wood one! I love how they’re all so surprised that Tare actually has a life. xD *wonders what Tare would say if he heard them*
    Thanks for tagging me! I haven’t done it yet, but I definitely will soon. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much! And aaaaahhhh you have no idea how much that made my day! *squee* Tare is one of my favorite characters, so I’m sooo glad he intrigues you! ^_^

      Oh goodness! *whaps forehead* I normally would’ve seen that but I’m soo behind on blogs of late… Sorry about that! πŸ˜› I shall go check it out! πŸ˜€


  4. OH THANKS FOR THE TAG. I definitely want to do it, I just…am not writing at the moment. >_< yep, I chickened out of doing April NaNo, but maybe I'll join in for the June (or July??) Camp. I just DON'T HAVE A STORY RIGHT NOW. I mean, I have 94202 stories but none of them are ready. Typical. I should really focus on plotting more, but all I seem to do these days is eat an astronomical amount of books and dream about chocolate. *sigh*

    • You’re welcome! And, well, if you DO get around to doing it, it’ll be awesome anyway. πŸ˜›

      Aww, sorry you’re not doing Camp… I TOTALLY know the feeling of having a gadrillion stories to write but none ready. Hope you’ll get back to writing soon! And hey, eating an astronomical amount of books is AWESOME! πŸ˜€



  5. I want a physical book copy of KW to just hug right now. I LOVE THOSE PEOPLE SO MUCH. β€œOh, he is verrry existent,” Baz said. β€œYou don’t even know how much he exists. …When he’s here, that is.” That is very much a Baz thing to say. XD ❀

    And the Heartseeker snippet was so good too! The writing style seems positively perfect for the story. Intriguing stuff here, Celti! πŸ˜€

    THANK YOU FOR THE TAG! I was going to post something else this weekend, but the more I think about it, the more I want to do the tag first. πŸ˜‰ Problem is, I don't know if I know seven bloggers well enough–seven that do tags and aren't already tagged, that is. πŸ˜› Maybe I'll just throw it out into the wind and let it be a free for all.

    • D’aww!! ^_^ You make my day, Tracey. ❀ I'm so thrilled you like them! ^_^ Haha, yes, Baz is… Baz. XD
      And thanks! I'm glad the style seems to fit! πŸ˜€
      You're welcome! πŸ™‚ And most people I've seen do it did like two or four people anyway; I didn't think I'd come up with a full seven, but happened to. But you can totally just tag a couple people if you want! πŸ™‚


      • (We were just talking about typos before, and look, I made another one. πŸ˜› I wish comments could be edited…)
        ^_^ Baz is just the best. The Chess Club would not be the same without that guy. XD
        It’s just the right blend of formality, magic, poetry, and perhaps even dry humor–very fantasy/fairy tale-ish. Love it!
        Yes, we shall see what kind of list I can actually come up with when I sit down and do it. πŸ™‚


        • (There, I edited your comment for you since you asked and I haz the powerrr. XD *giggle* But I know, comments should be editable! *flail*)
          Heehee, he’s the heart of the Chess Club, alright. πŸ˜›
          D’aww!! YOU ARE THE SWEETEST THING. ^_^ Thank you so much. ❀
          Yes yes! And I love your writing so I can't wait to see your snippet! πŸ˜€
