The Lucky 7 Meme

Robin Moran at The Nook has tagged us in the Lucky 7 Meme that's been going around. 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 as they're written--no cheating
4) Tag 7 other writers
5) Let them know

Here's mine (Susan's) from THE MADMAN'S CROWN: 
She knew what she could do.  Her mother’s memory inspired her with a perfect way to escape—she would begin preparations immediately.

​TimerenĂ© did not fall asleep that night, but the thought of her plan eased the lines on her face.


You have got to be kidding me, Flavian thought, staring into the smelly depths of his gym locker.  But the taunts came again. 

“Your Highness… Wanna come back to your magical kingdom, Prince Flavian?  Or do you wanna fight us?”  Someone grabbed his arm, but he broke free.  

And now for Tyler-Rose's...

Maren nodded and turned to continue on her way, but Archer held her back. “And we cannot give them our real names. I will be Thomas Stern, a Ranger on leave and you,” Archer paused and released her arm. “You can be my young wife.”

Maren's eyes grew wide. “Your wife—!” she began, but he cut her off.

“Yes, my wife,” Archer continued. Maren turned and walked into the front yard of the house and Archer followed her. “A man would hardly bring his sister on this sort of trip, would he? Besides—That doesn't matter. We are going to visit your family. Our goods and livestock were lost when the bridge to Harrisford collapsed.”
Becuase I think 4 just as good a number as 7, I'm tagging 4 people:

Can't wait to see your 7 lines, guys!  Also, if you haven't done this yet, feel free to request one of our 3 remaining tags in the comments. ;)


  1. Thanks Susan, I'll get right on that!

  2. Ooo, I like both of your chunks! Caught my attention! :)

  3. Hmm...well, I don't really write for a living, but I wrote a novel once. It's really stupid. Maybe I'll put that and also do a song I've written or something. Thanks so much for tagging me! I'm going to get right on it and I'll give you the link after I'm done! :)

    1. Hahahaha ohhh no...I had a feeling I would end up tagging someone who was more of a reader-blogger than a writer-blogger. Post a song you've written! That would be perfect!

    2. Here's the link to my Lucky Seven
