Lucky 7 Meme

I was tagged by Kelly Hashway for the Lucky 7 Meme. Thank you, Kelly.

This is a fabulously fun contest, peeps! 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
4.) Tag 7 authors
5.) Let them know


Here are my lines from my WIP titled (so far) DRAGON FIRE.


He gave the Brenin Warder the plaingold ticket he had swiped, and said with a shy grin, “I brought ee Chanter a jugful o’ ale this morntide. He was thankful, eh?”
“Eh!” the Brenin Warder agreed with a laugh, and lowered his pike. “Come in and welcome, lad. Enjoy the show, eh?”
“Eh,” Dragon answered, and strutted in.
As soon as he reached the Square he let out a gasp despite himself. 


Here are the authors I'm tagging:

Teresa

Amanda.

Jessie

Debbie

Ruth

Tracey

Okay, have fun! If you could, also post just the seventh line on your seventy-seventh page in the comments below. :)

(And just for fun, this is an interesting
article.)

  1. Thank you for tagging me! This is such a fun one. I love seeing this glimpse into a story from a random page. Here's the seventh line of page 77...we really got a great one from me: He stretched. Jumped into the water. Haha. Let's just say line 7 on page 77 isn't anything to blog about for me. Too bad it wasn't a few lines earlier or later. :)

    1. LOL! Why was he jumping? Did he see gold glinting in the bottom of a lake? Was there a girl he was trying to impress?

      See, even the most random sentences can be intriguing! (Out of curiosity, what WAS the sentence a few lines earlier... or later?)

    1. A Brenin Warder is a type of knight/soldier in the world of Dragon Fire.

      Glad you liked it. :)

  3. Thanks for tagging me! I'm away from home right now so I can't participate. :(. Maybe when I get back in town & reestablish Internet. Sigh.

    1. Isn't it hard being internet-less? You feel so... disconnected. LOL

      Definitely, if you can, please try to participate when you get back! I'm eager to see your seven sentences!

    1. Or you can do page 7, and post those next 7 lines starting from line 7. Might be easier. LOL

  5. Well, here it is!

    "Paul breathed a sigh of relief. He had been afraid there would be more trouble, but it seemed he might get off without that.
    As the innkeeper showed him to his room, Paul glanced over at Michael. The boy smiled slightly and nodded his thanks. Paul winked back. He couldn’t help but feel rather pleased with himself."

See my comment box? Want to know a secret?

*whispers* It's actually a TARDIS comment box! If you write long enough, you'll see... it's bigger on the inside!

Isn't that cool?

Now that you know that, aren't you going to throw a comment in there? You KNOW you want to. :)
