7777 Tag: The Supernatural Projects

Created via Canva; paint splotch is from Canva

I was tagged for the 7777 tag by the inspiring Keturah at Keturah’s Korner! Thanks so much!

Ze Rules:
1.      Open 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! (lol. I never manage this)

So, was going to do my main manuscript, Low Expectations (which I talked about in My Success Story--and multiple other posts :p). But its 7th page doesn’t make much sense without at least 5 of the pages before it, so instead, I decided to do the manuscript I mentioned on Monday, an old dystopian entitled The Supernatural Projects.

This scene is… also hard to explain without context. But essentially, The Supernatural Projects takes place in a world called Ciencia, which is obsessed with Supernaturals: randomly chosen, genetically modified soldiers to protect the nation from its enemies. Every year, one lucky winner is chosen of the populace to meet a Supernatural—on live television (insert fangirl screams)! At the end of the televised date, if you want to call it that, they get to make a Request of the government, any desire they can think of is granted by their illustrious ruler. As the 7th page of TSP comes in, the MC, Leiah, is the lucky winner, and her childhood best friend, Jesse Lark, is the Supernatural.

Only now do I notice that Director Rockson is narrating again. “And now it’s time,” to say goodbye, “for the Request.”
The chance of a lifetime. I could get a Zai's holophone 2000. I could be supplied with a fair living for the rest of my life. I could leave our awful, tiny, gossip of a town and never look back.
But none of these will be my request. I wanted to save Jesse and here is my chance.
Thank you, God.
“Anything I want?” I ask, just to be sure.
Rockson nods, a slight grin spreading across his face. “Within certain parameters, of course.”
I take a deep breath. “Then my request is freedom. Freedom for Jesse Lark.”
Essentially, she’s been put on display by her government and she’s going to try to use their own game to set herself and Jesse free. Obviously, it was stupid, and it’ll only set the entire book in motion, but it certainly was fun to write. ;)

For my part, I tag Grace, Skye, Charisma, Bianca, and Faith. I managed five, which is more than normal, so I'm feeling pretty good, haha.

If anyone wants to steal the tag, feel free! Just leave me the link in the comments, so I can check it out. :) Can't wait to hear from you, and I'll see you in the comment section!

  1. Okay, The Supernatural Projects sounds utterly amazing!! (Not to mention it reminds me just maybe a teeny tiny little bit of super epic supersoldiers....)

    Leiah already sounds like a great character. She could use this as a chance to get something she's always wanted, or even something she needs. But instead she's going to risk everything and try to save her friend. I love it!!! (And I love how she's thanking the Lord for it, quite lovely.)

  5. Challenge ACCEPTED! I guess I can't keep my wip 100% hidden from the world.

    And even though you mainly wrote that story for fun, at least it looks good. From that snippet, anyway.

    I hope you find an agent one of these days.
