The latest thing amongst my writer friends on the Internet is a little game called Lucky Seven. Once tagged you're required to go to Line 7 of Page 77 of your manuscript and share the next seven lines. So, here's mine:
“How’s Frank?” Joe asked.
His mother heaved a gloomy sigh. “Oh, you know. Busy. Working. As always.”
“That is what makes it possible for him to support you in the style you deserve.” A horn beeped and Joe started. The car beside him couldn’t back out of its slot without flattening him where he stood. He raised a hand in apology and moved on toward the mall entrance. “Tell me you’re not thinking of leaving him again.”
“Of course not!” But she sounded more defensive than certain.
Now for the next part. I have to 'tag' seven other people. So here are the lucky seven, chosen mostly at random from among those I encounter on Twitter:
Teresa L Watts
Terri L Coop
Deryn Collier - Go check out her new book!
Melissa C Alexander
And just so I don't seem sexist.... Charley Pearson
Okay people. You have your mission. Let's see those lines.
