Lucky 7

After being tagged twice and peer-pressured by Amanda, I'm giving in and participating in Lucky 7 Meme. Cue picture!

The rules are as follows:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next seven lines as they're written--no cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers
5. Let them know

Well, first off, I'm not going to tag 7 writers, just to get that out of the way. Most of the bloggers I consistently "follow" (and by "follow", I mean check and comment on their posts at least once a month) have probably already been tagged.

After going back and forth and back and forth between 7 lines from page 77 of Blink and 7 lines from page 77 of Aqueous, I settled on Aqueous. It's more fun, anyway.

Without further ado.


“What time was your accident?” Addi asked.
“It was… late. At night.”
“They’re primarily nocturnal. They’re also extremely good at keeping out of sight.” There was something unreadable in her voice.
“But he was up on the beach with me!”
“And yet your cousin didn’t see him.”
“Because he wasn’t there!” I was shouting now. 


This is where I'd normally tag 7 people, but I'll just use it to say hi to everyone (since I haven't blogged in a while) and say "feel free to participate in the Luck 7 Meme, and just say I tagged you, even if I didn't."  

Thanks for reading, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oooh! Good stuff. I'm curious what exactly is going on––the whole context. I should read the book so I know. :P

*applauds* I'm so proud of you for being peer-pressured into doing it. XD


LOL I'm a label. XD Aww, Maggie, I thought you had more integrity than this! Giving into peer pressure…*shakes head* XP

Kidding aside, since it was mostly dialogue, it's hard to figure out exactly what's going on, but that's to be expected. I did notice that the two tags(besides the 'said') both had 'was' in them—the passive-wording warning sign. I think you could actually get rid of the second one, because I can hear her frustration and volume growing in her words. =) Consider interest piqued. ^_^


That excerpt makes me curious to know just what's happening. :) Intriguing...

I was tagged in this meme already, by Amanda. :)
