Instagram “7-7-7” Challenge (Brought To WordPress)

Posted by

For starters, I would like to point out that what follows is all Kate Colby’sΒ (The Cogsmith’s Daughter and The Courtesan’s Avenger) fault. πŸ˜‰ Yesterday, I found on Instagram that she had included me (along with six other authors) in a “challenge” to share 7 sentences from page 7 in my latest work in progress. Next I needed to challenge 7 additional authors to do the same.

Quickly, I was able to offer up the first two sevens in Conventions, and did so:

7 lines from page 7 of Conventions, in progress. [Photo by me, 2016.]
7 sentences from page 7 of Conventions, in progress. [Photo by me, 2016.]

I’m still new to Instagram. So, unfortunately, and as I also wrote on Instagram yesterday, *I* *DON’T* *KNOW* 7 other authors (I’m aware of) on Instagram.

I did know four (besides Kate), and promptly asked all of them if they would like to join in: Adele Archer, Simon Laffy, Margaux Benison and Cas Blomberg.

Assuming they still like and want to continue to know me, that is. But that still leaves me 3 authors short.

I do know, however, quite a few authors here on WordPress. That being so, I’d like to ask any of you if you would like to join in. Share 7 sentences (in a row) that appear on page 7 of your current manuscript – in the comments below, or on your own site (just link to it in my comments), or on Instagram (if you are there and I don’t know it). If you are able to ask 7 other authors to do the same…feel free…

And everyone, have a nice day. πŸ™‚


UPDATE: For some reason, while I was sharing this post to Google+, I suddenly remembered dodge ball in junior high school:

…But while I was accurate, I couldn’t throw very hard. Although I do recall I did once first-class conk some guy who’d hit “Rita” (in a mixed game in gym class) way too hard…

School memories never go away! How our minds work! LOL!


  1. If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t know hardly any authors on Instagram when I started either. I’ve slowly found the profiles of people I know and made some new acquaintances too. It’s a pretty friendly place.
