Taking up the Gauntlet!

Ok, so @GunterWriting has tagged several writers and set this 777 writing challenge, at least i hope there are no other blackdragon80 folk he knows of on WordPress!! 🙂

Anyhow, after reading a blog by @LynetteNoni which sets out this challenge, @GunterWriting set out the instrucitons pretty much like this as taken from @LynetteNoni blog…’The 777 challenge requires 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. Once you have done this, you can tag 7 other bloggers to do the same with their work-in-progress.’

I’ll just leave it open as the writers I know really well have either done said challenge or already been tagged, so here goes…

WolfbornWithSubtitle_zps19a1fbe5 An excerpt from Wolf Born…

Norarl’s other blade was struck from his grip, his head snapped back as a boot heel struck his jaw. Shaking it off, Norarl lunged, snatched the man’s hair. He screamed.

And tried punching Norarl in the face, he avoided the blow, but the man lashed out and dug his fingers into Norarl’s windpipe, a pressure built like a heavy thunder storm.

Scrabbling in the dirt while he choked on his last breath and spit in his gob, Norarl felt around in the dirt for the second knife he’d lost, fingers sinking into the damp soil.

The man hauled him closer, teeth bared in a snarl,

Did that whet anyone’s appetite for more…? 🙂
