Lucky 7: seven lines from new works
I have been passed my Lucky 7 by the wonderful Laura Wilkinson. Lucky 7 is a bit of ‘blog fun’ for authors.
This is my first time being tagged, and as I pass this on to my Lucky 7 – like Laura – I hope i don’t lose any friends or followers 🙂
Here’s how it works:
– Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
-Go to line 7
-Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating!
-Tag 7 other authors to do the same.
Here is the 7 line extract from page 7 of my current editing manuscript ‘The Divine Pumpkin’:
“God, I don’t believe you! Of course power is important. I don’t have it and everyone else does!” She raised her voice so loudly that a prison officer peered through the
glass window in Paloma gently raised her hand to him, and gently shook her head.
As I wrote this I noticed something I need to change, but as the rules state ‘no cheating’, I had to obey!
So the next Lucky 7 are:
Mariam Kobra @marium_kobras
Lyn Midnight @LynMidnight
Robert James Russel @robhollywood
Helen Hollick @HelenHollock
Kate Thomson @Katyhaye
Sean Harris @vampirewars_SH
Amanda McCrinn @9inchnails
Remember that this is a bit of fun. I have enjoyed reading the previous 7 extracts, and hopefully you will have the same experience. There is no punishment if any of the Lucky 7 above don’t partake.
Hope you enjoyed my extract 🙂
