I feel privileged! I’ve been tagged in Lucky 7. Here’s how it works…
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 seven other authors.
My current WIP in is several states of editing, and I’ve used a couple of excerpts lately in Five Sentence Fiction, so I grabbed the last manuscript I’ve written from my book ‘Beneath the Rainbow’, this is Page 7 on my Word document…though, obviously you’ll get a different paragraph from the Kindle version!
‘Her friends sat by their parents, not all had come, some parents thought services like this were too much for ones so young to bear, but Freya smiled at those who had come. Her friends sat there, stiff and quiet, in awe of the occasion. One or two of the boys had let their minds wander and one was studying a spider crawling up the side of the pulpit.
Her best friend, Meg, stared at the coffin, and swung her legs to and fro. Meg liked the flowers and nodded to herself in approval at the bluebells. She leaned close to her mother and whispered. “Is she in there?”
Meg’s mother glanced down mortified at her daughter’s question, but relieved that it had been whispered, a child not so well brought up might have said it out loud…that was too much to consider.’
So now to tag…you may have been tagged before (sorry), but I like your writing…so if you haven’t already…we’d love to see your work!
