Seven Seven Seven (2015)

In On Writing, Unchurched by Bronwen2 Comments

I’ve been tagged for the 7/7/7/ #PitchWars Challenge by Verna Austen.

Here are the rules:

  1. Go to page 7 of your WIP.
  2. Scroll down to Line 7.
  3. Share the next 7 sentences in a blog post.
  4. After the excerpt, tag 7 other writers to continue the challenge.

Here we see Janine facing off against Constance, leader of the Youth Group. I’m cheating and going for 9 sentences, because I think it’s more representative that way.

She recoiled as if I’d slapped her and her knuckles tightened on the door handle. “That is not the kind of language we use here,” Constance said, her cheeks starting to pink. “You have to understand, this isn’t simply about–about–”

What, was she trying not to use the s-word? If ‘virginity’ was bad she’d probably have a hernia if anyone in the room said ‘sex.’

“–Boys. This is about your relationship with God. And right now your relationship is in peril.”

Judgey!

Alright, your turn!

  1. No dot after the K in my name! 😀 Is just an initial, doesn’t stand for anything. But hey, now I have an excuse to do this…
