Lucky Seven

I hope everyone who participated in Irish Yoga last night is feeling well today. Nothing like a Yoga hangover~ A Yogangover. 

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 victims participants... 

1. Tracy Jo 
2. Clare Dugmore 
3. Jessica Hill 
4. Bee 
5. Erin Summerill 
6. Murees Dupe 
7. Stacy Henrie 

I apologize if you have already been tagged in the Lucky Seven Meme. You can just skip the post, pass it on to another or whatever you decide. 

Happy Monday 


  1. Oh, is she going to let her in? Pass on a message? I want to know more!

  2. That reminds me! Did you get the Sunshine Award I left you last week? :)

    Anyhoo, great excerpt! I want to know more!

  3. Oh...But what!??!?! But what!?!?!? :)

  4. I love courtroom dramas! That's awesome stuff. I'll have to work up some courage and do this lucky 7 post on Wednesday. Thanks for tagging me.

  5. Can't believe you've left us on a cliffhanger like that... i want more....:) Great teaser.

  6. It made sense. And you don't see the word scudded very often.

  7. I don't usually like to get tagged or to tag others because it feels like shameless promotion, but this one is interesting. Good luck with your WIP, it sounds interesting.

  8. Interesting excerpt. I'd love to know how Kate got into the position where she's willing to commit political suicide and violate every
    ethical cannon she could think of. 

  9.  Yes, she let's her in, but what Kate learns from the defendant once she agrees to talk to her is devastating.

  10.  I'm sorry, Carrie. I am on my way over to pick it up as soon as I get the kids dinner on the table & we eat. Thank you so much.

  11.  But... it is not good what Kate finds out.

  12.  You are very welcome. I look forward to reading it on Wed.

  13.  I know. I wanted to post the next few lines (at least) so it would not be so out of context, but I was trying to follow the rules. People tell me I am not a rule follower, can you believe that? LOL

  14.  Thanks Alex. I know what you mean about the word "scudded", but there is this

  15.  I hit send before I finished. There is this elder defense lawyer a who comes to court in blue jeans, a long gray ponytail and a sports jacket (anyone else who dared to dress like that would be removed from court) but, he uses that word and a few others like plethora (can't think of his other favorites right now) but he uses them religiously so it popped into my head during that scene.

  16.  I am glad you don't mind doing it. I think this one is unique and fun.

  17.  If I could hurry up and finish this book, hopefully you will know. LOL

  18. Thank you so much for the tag. Wow! Your first draft read very well and it is very attention grabbing. I wonder who it is that she wants to see so urgently and why. Great job!
