Lucky Seven


Here are the rules:
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 other authors.
My current WIP does not hit 77 pages yet, so I used page 7, seventh line, next 7 lines. Here's what I have from my political thriller/joint project with Kelly Yeakle.

Sasha was taking advantage of the latter that day. There was something therapeutic about shooting the shit out of paper crotches.
As she  maneuvered her '66 Dodge Coronet into a parking space, she tried to smother the hard knot of dread that had begun in her belly and spread up into her lungs, causing her chest to feel constricted. Those commercials must have given me heartburn.
As soon as she unbuckled her seat belt, she slipped on a little denim jacket to hide the gun from innocent and delicate pedestrians, slammed the car door, and walked up the short paved path to the entrance of the adjoining gun range.

And I'm tagging....
Dahlia DeWinter
Staci Perkins
Raven McAllan
W. Lynn Chantale
D.M. Slate
Lisa Yarde
Gayl Taylor

If you don't want to, that's fine, but it is fun! 


  1. Girlfriend I only count 5 lines...but they are very good lines! posting mine as soon as I come up with 7 authors to tag.

  2. Of course I got a phone call which slowed me down. Here is my seven.
