777 Writer’s Challenge – The Fall of Lilith

1 Aug

Hello. I have been invited to participate in the 777 Writer’s Challenge by the lovely and talented Eloise De Sousa from Thoughts by Mello-Elo. Eloise is an author who dabbles in different genres of books ranging from poetry, children’s literature to adult crime romance. Her blog covers a variety of topics that include her experiences and opinions on different subjects, and from time to time, details on books she is working on.

What is the 777 Writer’s Challenge?

The author/writer must go to the 7th page of a work-in-progress, go to line 7 on that page and share the following 7 sentences. The writer must also invite 7 other writers to take the same challenge.

It seems simple enough but for a writer, sharing a random piece of work, still in progress, is daunting. However, I accept the challenge and I thank Eloise for thinking of me. ❤

My book, (not yet published) The Fall of Lilith is divided into BOOK I – Heaven and BOOK II – Earth, so I will do the challenge for both parts of the book.

BOOK I – Heaven

The Fall of Lilith- Cover-Image

This was war and she had never seen anything like it––none of the angels have. Lilith’s body trembled and waves of nausea plagued her as the realization that she, like the angels torn to shreds, was not immortal and could end in the same way. A sudden rush of blood to her head made it throb. She panted as her eyes darted in every direction. These strange sensations tormented her as she stepped over the splayed bodies of warrior angels whose once celestial glow had been extinguished by enemy blades.

She had done this. She had caused all this to come to pass.



BOOK II – Earth

The Fall of Lilith-Fantasy Angels Series-books

‘Fan Art’ for The Fall of Lilith by Denise Spencer

Lilith stared wide-eyed at her surroundings. Where beams of light shone through the trees, strange shadows danced. The jungle evoked memories of the terrors she had endured in the East and South Forests in Heaven. With each new noise, her heart leapt to her throat. Branches creaking, leaves rustling, birds squawking, hostile screeches from unknown animals, the beat of paws against the ground—these sounds created a symphony of fear.

“I must remain calm,” Lilith told herself in a low voice. “After all, this is Earth. I watched most of the event Creation, and I did not witness God create anything as menacing on this planet as in the forests in Heaven.”

Still, she knew much had happened besides creation during Creation.

    Thanks for taking part Vashti. Your 7 sentences certainly had me gripped. Good luck with The Fall of Lillith. 😊

    Very intriguing indeed, Vashti. And I’m impressed by the art work. You have fan artwork before the book is out! Thanks for nominating me, but to be honest I don’t know what my WIP is at the moment. I’m looking at some of my old stories and doing some editing but haven’t decided. I started writing something but haven’t got to page 7 yet (I need to do some thinking and research). I’m going away next week and I don’t think I’ll be able to connect regularly for several weeks, so I hope to have time to read and write. With any luck I should be able to take up the challenge when I come back…:)

      Don’t worry Olga, do it when you can. I’m actually at the Florida Keys celebrating my birthday.🎂🎈My sister came down from NYC and is celebrating with me. I haven’t been able to get on line too much either, so I get it. 😚 I am looking forward to your snippet though. I hope you’re having a great time!

    Ooh, I love these 777 challenges. Forcing authors to choose an excerpt that they might not have normally chosen to share. You can find some good stuff in there… 😉 These are great. I especially like the first one. Thank you so much (so, so much) for tagging me because now I will have to go dust off my books to find a quote. I’m excited about this… Let’s see what happens.

    The instant I saw the title, this became a book I’m aching to read, and your pictures are doing nothing to ease that pain. I am in love with well executed religious symbolism in stories. I’m quite fond of the challenge, too, seeing as it has my favorite number 🙂


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega August 10, 2015 at 12:04 pm #

      Ha, ha, ha! I’d never thought I’d be so happy about someone’s pain. 😉 Thank you for the kind words. I’m very excited about releasing this book. I have gotten great reviews from editors and beta readers. This is a great challenge. If you have a work-in-progress, feel free to take it, and get back to me with the link. I’d like to see what you’re working on.
