Lucky 7

Lucky 7
May 22, 2012 15 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

My very talented writerly friend, Shah of Words in Sync, tagged me with the Lucky 7 Meme a few weeks ago.

The Lucky 7 Meme rules are….
  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next seven lines (sentences??) as they are – no cheating.
  4. Tag 7 other authors.

Here are the 7 lines following the 7th line of the 77th page in my (unedited and still uncompleted) manuscript: Toxic Lucidity

“I don’t care what he went through over there or post-traumatic stress disorder or whatever labels his doctor wants to attach to his name this week. Trust me. You are his whole world. Short of becoming a zombie, I can promise you it’s a surge of hormones on your end. That man is still head over heels in love with you. I’m so amazed you can’t see that.”

“Some days I really think he is becoming a zombie. You’ve seen the vacant look in his eyes. Haven’t you noticed how he seems different now? Even when he’s Martin, he’s still not completely himself.” Sobs overtook her again, and she couldn’t talk.

“Kate, first, calm down. Getting all upset like this can’t be good for the baby.”

The 7 people I am tagging:

  1. My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog
  2. Views from Nature
  3. Runaway Sentence
  4. The Kir Corner
  5. Cameron D. Garriepy
  6. Jester Queen
  7. A Writer is Born

I hope you will take a few minutes to check out the authors I’ve tagged. You won’t be disappointed!!

    Thanks, S, for the nod. How does one determine the 77th page of a Scriv. file?
