Lucky 7 Meme

Okay, so I finally got tagged for the Lucky 7 Meme.  Silver James did it.  Stop over there and see her 7 lines.

Here's how it works...

Go to page 77 of your current WIP
Go to line 7
Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences and post them as they’re written
Tag 7 other authors
Let them know

So, in my version, I went with sentences rather than lines.  Here's the snippet from page 77 of my last version of Djinnocide (since my current work is all on notebook paper and I'm not to pg77 yet).

He shook his head. “Let me guess, Mary decided bartering with you garnered more than keeping her trap shut would.” From the grinding of his voice, I expected a spectacular display of rage. My ex and the pirate weren’t exactly fond of each other, and I suspected Zeke wanted the pleasure of divulging this piece of info himself. Whatever slim fondness they had for each other was now toast. Good thing Mary sat in her well-protected building and not here. If Zeke saw her, she’d be reduced to a few cells floating in a Petri dish.

And I know I never do this, but I'm going actually tag people with this - cuz it's like writerly and fun.

Janet Corcoran (you know you want to)
Natalie Murphy
Julie Dao
Debs Carr
Erica and Christy
Alexia Chamberlain
Kristin Rae

Feel free to participate if you want to, and if you do, stop back by and let me know so I can swing by to enjoy your snippet, too.  =o)


  1. Great excerpt.

    Thanks for tagging me. I've also been tagged by Anita Chapman over on her blog and will post my seven lines soon.

  2. Good snippet! I remember Zeke quite well ;)

    Thanks for tagging me! I'll do it sometime next week =)

  3. Any time you reference a petri dish in a novel, that's a great scene. Love it!

  4. How did I miss this? Stoopid 'unplugged' weekend!!

    I loved that whole section with Mary the Pirate and Zeke's intense dislike for her - nice scene for your Lucky 7!

    So, tagged twice - I better get my Lucky 7 up soon, eh?

  5. LOVE this snippet! Thanks for tagging me. I got tagged before I left on my trip, so my little snippet is already posted if you want to check it out!
