I have been challenged by fellow Critique Circle writer John Berkowitz to complete the 7/7/7 challenge (note I did not say 666. Well, now I did.)
The rules of the 7/7/7 challenge are as follows:
- Go to page 7 of your work-in-progress
- Scroll down to line #7
- Share the next 7 lines of your manuscript in a blog post
- Tag 7 other writers (with blogs) to continue the challenge.
Here are my seven lines from my work-in-project The Warring Goblet, fantasy:

“I know where you sent them.”

And now I get to tag seven lovelies to challenge (no pressure in accepting, you guys; this is just for fun.) Here they are, in no particular order:
