Or at least, 7 is presumed to be lucky. As is 3. Wonder why that is...I'm way to curious for my own damn good.
The fantabulous Lauren Waters, fellow campaigner, has tagged me for the Lucky 7 Meme. Following the rules of the game, I'm to:
1. Go to page 77 of my current MS/WIP
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
There's a slight issue with this, as my current WIP novelette Flicker doesn't have 77 pages. Even if I double space it. So, what you're getting is from my very rough 2011 NaNo, Strella PAX. And I mean, rough like sandpaper so bumpy you cut yourself on it. Even worse, because that's the beginning of the novel and as I went along things just went downhill. Page 77 is death touch rough. I haven't even looked at this thing since I wrote it in November.
You've been warned.
“Some of the stuff in there is mine. Sorta, it’s not like we paid for it.”
“Right then,” Julie placed her hands on her knees and pushed herself up out of the chair. “I’ll get started in the office then. I’m sure there’s lots of information there that shouldn’t be left lying around.”
Michael put on proper clothes before helping her. For a grandmother, Julie moved pretty well. He found her on the floor of the office, sorting paper in piles.
Sorry Lauren, I know you wanted to see what I was up to but I have a feeling I've sorely disappointed you.
And I feel so embarrassed by the state of of these 7 lines, because, really, me as the author I have only a hazy recollection as to what and where this is going. If I remember right, this is after Polaris and Vega learned that the program that kidnapped them (which they're escaped from) also put hits out on their families, and Julie's from a counter group Polaris's parents started who's offering to hid them.
Gah. Really, this is totally not shareable. But it's good to get over not-sharing humps.
Right, so I have to tag seven authors to do the same now. Here's some of the future bestselling writers!
