Here's how it works:
Each author is requested to
*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs as written and post them
on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors
I don't have a page 77 yet for my current WIP, so I'll share seven lines from A Midwest Summer Night's Dream, which releases Friday (yay!):
“An old friend of mine is here.”
The voice sounded familiar, but Jeb couldn’t place it. He lifted his whiskey glass and relished its burn going down. On a slow blink, he focused on the next table over, where a friendly face from Tipton smiled back at him.Maggie sat with an elderly gent. By the looks of it, his hand was working under her skirts. She looked as thrilled as a polecat finding a rotten piece of meat.
You might surmise, correctly, that Maggie's not the heroine. :) She is, however, a key character in the story. But you'll have to read it to find out more!
So now, onto the more difficult part of the task - choosing seven authors to carry on the meme (or not, as they choose!). Some Six Sentence Sunday wonder writers:
Monica Enderle Pierce
Dianne HartsockZee Monodee
