Teralyn at A Writer's Journey tagged me during the A-Z Challenge, so I thought it would be a great post for today. Thanks, Teralyn!
I did The Lucky 7 Meme here, and now I'm going to do it again with my current WIP.
If you haven't heard about this before, here are The Rules:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP.
- Go to line 7.
- Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
- Tag 7 authors.
- Let them know.

I'm not going to tag anyone because after so many of you have just completed the A-Z Challenge I know everyone's feeling a bit shellshocked and trying to get back down to Earth. Consider yourself tagged if you'd like to share an excerpt - it's quite liberating sharing something so brief!
