Lucky 7 Meme

Tara Tyler has tagged me in the Lucky 7 Meme.

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
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.

In my case, I'm not going to tag other authors because there are soooo many people doing this right now--instead, I'm going to say if you haven't done this meme and you want to, have at it! It's super fun. ^_^

My current manuscript is Rising Book 2: Rebellion, and fortunately, I'm well past 77 pages. ("Fortunately" because I'm on a deadline to finish the first draft by the end of April.) The fun thing about this is that these snippets are so short, it could make sense or not make sense. ;) Here are my current seven lines starting at line 7 on page 77.

"She hasn't exactly been very forthcoming."
"She never is." Freya stood up and looked at Lachlan expectantly, and he took that as his cue to leave.
Lachlan rose and waited for a mild wave of dizziness to pass. "Thank you again." He exited the tent and made his way back over to the one he'd left earlier, waving at Kilta and Tobias, who were still beside the fire, as he passed them.

And while I'm at it, here's a song from my Rising Book 2 playlist (which has about 25 songs on it). This is "One Day" by Trading Yesterday, one of my all-time favorite bands.


  1. wow! a snippet and a song! thanks!

  2. May I just say I love the name Freya :-)

  3. Anticipation!! I'm happy to see Lachlan's name there - I want to read more about him and Brenna :)

    You and I must have similar taste in music, because every time you share a song I seem to love it!

  4. I've loved this 7 meme thing... so much fun!

    And great little blurb... ;)

  5. I'm very excited to read your blurb since I just finished the first book! (I left you a little something over at my blog.) ;)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
