The Attack of the Lucky 7 Meme

It appears the Lucky 7 Meme zombie virus for writer-bloggers has arrived on my front porch via Cora Ramos!

I thought I might escape being in lurker mode and all. Not so…Cora found me. 

Unfamiliar with The Lucky Meme virus?

These are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs, and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 authors, and let them know.

Game on

My Seven Lines:  

Annie bit her lip. Two cots barely fit in the room. The shower looked like an RV bath. Still it had a floor, no dirt, and a door, not a piece of cloth, and there was even plenty of bottled water beneath the bedside table. “Thank you, Mr. Welds.” And, thank you, Aunt Gerry.

“Please. It’s Fred. See you at the house.”

A short time later, they gathered around the table in the tiled dining area. Martha served fried plantains and a vegetable salad with a pitcher of fruit water.

“I’d go easy on the sauce. It takes some getting used to,” Fred warned.

Erin began to cough, grabbed her glass and chug-a-lugged all the liquid. “Ya say?”

The laughter that followed drained some of the tension from Annie’s shoulders. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad.

 Annie’s not talking about playing Lucky 7 Meme, but I have to agree this virus isn’t so bad!

Rule #3 was easy.

Rule #4, a bit harder. I’m hoping they’ll join the fun! Even if they don’t check out their websites.

  1. Janice Heck
  2. Jenny Hansen
  3. Jodi Lea Stewart
  4. Kristy Lyseng
  5. Carrie Daws
  6. Wayne Borean
  7. Elaine Smothers

In case they decline…

YOUR TURN: Join the fun and post a Lucky 7 Meme from your novel/WIP in the comments.

  3. Thanks for passing the Lucky 7 Meme my way, Judyth. I am enjoying the excerpts of other lucky meme-ers! I will post my response on Saturday. Wildly busy day today, workshop tonight, school tomorrow, so that leaves Saturday. Thanks, again.
    Did you see my new post: “They Laughed When I Started to Twitter”?
    (I am trying to master the linking process…not quite there yet.)

  4. So happy that you went 7 paragraphs, since it so adds to the flavor of your excerpt 🙂

    Really glad that Cora found you before you were able to duck behind the curtain and out of sight!

    • Interesting in manuscript format I picked seven lines. In WP format I have paragraphs!!
      Glad you enjoyed the excerpt from Claiming Annie’s Heart
