I have been tagged in the Lucky Seven Meme. Thank you, Jennifer Young for picking me. It sounds fun. I hope I wasn't too~too obvious with my hints that I had not been picked yet to play this game on the playground with the rest of you kids.
Jennifer writes quirky stories for children and if you have not already visited her blog, Castles in the Sky, then you are missing out & should head over there right now. She is handing out free candy to the first fifteen of you to get there starting now... Sorry, I made that up. No candy (not that I know of) just a cool looking blog full of fun and entertainment. That's better than candy anyway, right?
Jen's debut book, A Cherry Tomato on Top, is scheduled to be released by Willow Moon Publishing sometime before fall 2013. Congratulations, Jen. With an awesome title like A Cherry Tomato on Top, can you see why I thought there might be free candy?
These are the rules to the Lucky 7 MEME:
1. Go to page 77 of your current ms.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they're written. No cheating.
4. Tag 7 other victims, er, authors.
My WIP is called Degrees of Innocence
and here is line 7 (remember this is a work in progress & this is my first draft.)
Kate scudded into the attorney's waiting room at the parish jail It was two in the morning on the eve of the biggest trial of her career and she suspected she was committing political suicide and violating every ethical cannon she could think of by visiting the woman she was prosecuting. The robust female guard approached, waiving a magnetic card against the square pad that unlocked the door to the waiting room.
She shrugged. “Says she won't talk to you.”
Kate sunk back into her chair, resting her head in the palm of her hands. She had to get in to see her, she just had to.
“Look, you've always been straight up with me-even helped my kid with that ticket-I know I'm gonna regret this in the morning, but-”There you have it. I know it won't make much sense-so out of context, but this was fun.
Now for the next seven lucky
