Soooooo . . . I basically never talk about my WIPs on here. Not in detail anyway--and I don't think I've ever shared lines from what I'm working on. But then this Lucky Seven meme went around and I got tagged twice. By MG and Marsha (both of whom you should check out and read their lines)!
And since I've loved reading everyone else's 7 lines, I figured just this once I'd play too. :)
(Okay, fine. Also? As I type this post I may have had a bit* of wine, so I'm feeling very sharey**.)
Here are the rules if you're tagged:
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
- Tag 7 other authors
I'm not cheating--no tweaking or anything--just copying and pasting my lines as they are. So have fun with that, ha.
"Let me change and grab my board." I sprint back up the stairs, hoping Robert will take the hint and quit it with the parental stuff.
Kellan calls after me to bring some shoes for walking, too. I grab sneakers from my closet and sit on my bed needing a second to catch my breath, a second to let my pulse slow down. But I can't deny it; there's a spark of attraction for him deep in my belly. It's the first thing—the first bright thing—to cut through the numbness I've waded in all week. I cling to it, letting it lift me higher than I've felt in a long time.
BOOM. There ya have 'em. What'd you think?
And now it's MY turn to tag seven authors to post from their WIPs!! *insert evil laughter here*
*like half a
**It's a word. Well, it is now anyway.
