7x7x7x7 Writing Challenge

Monday is the new Sunday, guys! . . . Well, not really—I just missed this Sunday challenge on Twitter (@WritingIzzy). Even so, I’m accepting it. BIG thanks to my fellow writers and mentee hopefuls @Married2ARod and @alannalp.

7x7x7x7 Rules:

Step 1: Eat a cookie (if you don’t, the rest of the steps are ruined)

Step 2: Scroll to the 7th page of your work-in-progress (WIP) or the story you entered into the lovely PitchWars

Genre: YA contemporary
