Lucky 7: 7 Lines from the 7th page

Here’s the meme, taken from @loudquietgirl:

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next seven lines as they are – no cheating
  4. Tag 7 other authors

On the seventh page of HEROES UNDER SIEGE, Dylan has accompanied Joss to visit her dad in the hospital. (Remember how he got there? He’s still there.) We’re in Dylan’s head as he and Jayce (Gene’s doctor and family friend) observe the visit from a relatively safe distance.

The doctor flipped the cover back over the tablet and slid it back into her pocket. “I think it’s going well,” she said, nodding in the direction of Joss and her dad. “He keeps tabs on you, and there’s animosity—”

“Is that a professional term for hatred and disgust?”

She laughed. “No, it’s not, and you know what it means, so don’t play dumb blond with me, Mr. Maxwell. He’s keeping tabs on you like a father watches his daughter’s boyfriend, not like a soldier on an enemy.”

Now, who can I pick who a) I think might actually see this; b) I think might be actively working a WIP; c) and/or I just want to be really nosey about?

  1. Kait Nolan
  2. Lauralynn Elliot
  3. Anne-Mhairi Simpson
  4. VJ Chambers
  5. Stacey Benefiel
  6. Amy Rose Davis
  7. You! If you think it looks fun or just really need a blog post.

If you do it, won’t you please leave a link to your post in comments?

  1. Ooh, this sounds like fun. I’ll have to schedule it for tomorrow since I already wrote my SQUEE post on the Haunted Lake review today. LOL

  2. Oh really??? No way! You tagged me! 🙂 I am at once flattered and terrified. 🙂

    I actually saw this on another friend’s Facebook timeline a couple of days ago and posted my excerpt there. Well, an excerpt from one of my several WIPs. So okay. I’ll post it tomorrow since I’ve already posted two things today. 🙂 And I’ll return to post a link.

    Love your little excerpt, BTW. You write GREAT dialogue!

  3. I’m tagged, I’m tagged!!! (This made my day.)

  5. Shoot! I wish I had something so I could play along. I took all of March off and only have random scribblings in my idea notebook – none of which reach a 7th page. Can I play again around the 2nd week in April? 🙂
