There’s a meme going around Facebook and Twitter called the Lucky 7 game. I’ve been tagged multiple times and haven’t participated because most people tagged me last week and I was a bit consumed with Sacrifice‘s release.
But a couple of days ago, Claire LeGrand tagged me on her blog, along with six other extremely talented writers, and I realized I had no excuse to not participate. Especially after I read the lines in Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons that fit within the parameters.
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
- Tag 7 other authors
The seven authors I tagged? I suck at this and here lies the true reason I never do these things. I worry I’ll annoy people. I worry they’ve already done it. I worry that someone will feel left out.
Basically I worry about every possible aspect. Wow. I’m experiencing deja vu. I just had a similar converasation with my crit partner Trisha about this yesterday.
Here’s the lines from the current page 77 of Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons:
After I looked in the bathroom mirror, I understood why Andy Jr. had looked so terrified. My hair stuck out all over my head. Mascara was smudged under my eyes, and foamy toothpaste hung from lower lip and down my chin.
I looked like a rabid Frankenstein’s bride.
Throw in my threats and talk about getting arrested and I had just became the neighborhood crazy lady.
Which seven writers? I gift this to anyone who wants to participate. Just post in the comments below so I can come visit your words.
