The 777 Challenge | The Villain Who Saved Christmas

Well, look who’s posting two weeks in a row! Earlier this week, Claire posted her snippets for the 777 Challenge, and today, Deborah tagged me for the challenge! Unfortunately, IDIA book 3 is still in the brainstorming stage… but I just got over 7 pages on my Christmas superhero short story, which also now has a title: The Villain Who Saved Christmas! I’m very excited about this story, and I can’t wait to see where it goes. For now, you can add it on Goodreads. First, the rules:

Rules

  1. Open your WIP to the seventh page
  2. Scroll past the seventh line
  3. Copy the next seven paragraphs and paste them on your blog for THE WORLD to read
  4. Tag seven people

And here’s my snippet! (For reference, Scott is a supervillain with ice powers named Hypothermia, and Saber is a superhero, Scott’s archnemesis.)

These people were so awesome for helping with the tour! I also posted on here on my blog about the fan art and fan fiction contest, so you should definitely check that out as well! And, of course, don’t forget to check out Lightporter on Amazon.

So because of the release, I thought I would share a little bit about my current writing project on here. Yes, I will be starting on IDIA book 3 soon (I can’t wait!), although I may save that for NaNoWriMo this year, we’ll see. But currently I’m working on a non-IDIA superhero story–Christmas themed! I’m planning to release it in early December of this year if everything goes as planned, and it will either be a short story or a novella. I’m really excited about this new project, and hopefully I’ll have a title reveal coming soon! For now, you can find it on Goodreads.

I want to thank all of you so much for all of your support! You guys are amazing, and I couldn’t have done this without you! I’m working on coming up with a regular blogging schedule so that I can try to keep posting during the school semesters, so if you have any blog posts you’d like to see me write, let me know those ideas in the comments down below! I love to talk to you guys!

The 777 Writing Challenge

Hi, everyone! Today I was sort-of tagged for the 777 challenge by Lynette Noni!

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.

Since my two main stories that I’m working on are still in the plotting stages, I decided to share from the story I’m currently editing. This worked out perfectly to the first time we see the villain! And don’t worry, you’ll be hearing more about this story soon.


Marba wove her way down the hallway between the small groups of people. They didn’t pay any attention to her, and she repaid them with the same treatment. You could tell which trainees were new; they were the ones who stared at her in awe as she walked past. Most of the seasoned trainees, and those who had completed training, had grown used to her commanding stature.

“Marba,” an authoritative voice called from behind her. The very sound of that voice was enough to silence all of the conversation in the hallway.


What a perfect ending! 😀 Now for those people I tag…
