The Lucky 7 Meme: Tag, You're It!

Big thanks, huge, go out to McKenzie McMann of The Ubiquitous Perspective and Clare Dugmore at Clare Dugmore Writes for passing me THE LUCKY 7 MEME! They are both fun and informative blogs that you should check out sooner than later.


There are 5 simple and fun rules to the Lucky 7:


  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines or paragraphs as they're written-- no cheating!
  4. Tag 7 other writers
  5. Let them know!
I chose my Nano MS because my Desert Snow is in pieces right now (along with my heart - revisions hurt!). Be forgving; it's still in word-vomit form. I did add some () for clarification.


From TO THE BONES:


"For that, I am sorry," I said. I hadn't thought of any of that and he was right.


He didn't say anything for a few minutes. "Were you really shot?" he finally asked.


I told him everything as we walked home, trying to beat the sunrise. From thinking they (half-demons) could kill me, how the other nahuallis (our Aztec-underworld spirit twins) hid from me, and hearing my nana. "I don't think that world is supposed to have the demons in it," I said. "And I don't think my nana is there either."




If you've already been tagged, I apologize. Either way, I love to see what people have. The next lucky 7 are:


Emily @ Emily R. King
Larissa @ Larissa's World
Alex @ Magpie Writes
Erin @ Mmm, Waffles
Barbara @ Barbara Ann Watson
Siobhan @ defcon's defunct delirium
Jasmine @ An Author's Ramblings


Happy writing and ¡Buen Provecho!

  1. Interesting excerpt. From those seven lines alone I want to know more about your WiP, I'm intrigued by the half-demons and Aztec-underworld spirit twins. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This tag has gone wild, hasn't it?

    And I agree, revisions do hurt--until you piece it back together and see how beautiful it became.
