Ali is a fellow committee member of the ‘Annual Bloggers Bash Awards’ (known as The ABBA’s) which are taking place in London on August 1st, 2015.So far, 20 bloggers (most of whom have never met each other before) have confirmed they’re attending the event. There is a full day of events planned, plus winners of the Awards will be announced during the day. If you haven’t voted for your favourite bloggers yet then you have until 12pm BST on July 30th to do so. Click here to be taken to the voting page, and click here for more details about the event.
Now on to the challenge. I have to go to the seventh sentence on the seventh page of a work in progress and reveal the next seven sentences. Those of you that have followed my blog for more than a few months will know that I have a love of writing short stories, most with a twist at the end. Unfortunately, none of the short stories I am writing go beyond that sixth page, so the excerpt below is from a book I started to write more than 18 months ago and which, unfortunately, has remained on the hard-drive since I started blogging.
There was a long pause before he got a reply.
“Ah yes, better make it black please.”
“Contact made” thought Scott. “Finally, but should I shower and dress first or just put on my dressing gown and go and face Nick straight away?”
“Don’t put it off”, a voice in his head said, “go down now and face him. Put it off and you are fooling yourself.”
But something else was stopping him from going downstairs straight away, and he knew exactly what it was.
I have to nominate another seven people to participate in the challenge. I can think of many to nominate but know that many have already completed this challenge. Therefore, I’m going to leave it open to anybody who wants to join in, to do so.
Thank you to Ali for nominating me to complete this challenge. She’ll be getting an extra hug from me on August 1st.
