Lucky 7!

So it seems that memes have a way of finding me. I’ve been tagged in a Lucky 7 meme by the super cute Ashley Nixon. Thanks, Ashley! Actually, she tagged me in TWO memes, but really, I can only do one meme at a time so the other one would have to wait. 🙂

 

This one is thankfully easy. No hoops or loops to go through. And trust me, with my ever growing belly, you do NOT want to see me go through HOOPS and LOOPS. Heh!

Alright, kidding aside, here are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current ms.

2. Go to line 7.

3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

4. Tag 7 other victims, er, authors.

Alright, let’s see what’s on page 77 of my ms “Hidden”.

*******

She’s thin and gaunt, her cheeks a grayish hue. She can’t be much older than my mother, but the difference is striking. Crinkles on the corners of her eyes jet out like spidery legs. Wisps of lank brown hair escape her ponytail to frame her long face. She takes my hand and I can feel the calluses on her palm.

            “Elsa’s resting in her stall right now, so you won’t have to worry about upsetting her.”

            Hay needles crunch underneath my sneakers. Flies hover over a suspicious-looking

********

Well, there you have it. It’s not much and doesn’t give away anything, really. But I’m just following rules. Now onto the tagging. *rubs hands together*

As usual, if you don’t want to do the meme, no problem. I’m all for democracy here. 🙂

Wishing everyone a great and fabulous week!!

  1. What the freak! ARe you kidding me? Flies are over what? WHAT? I'm dying here and now I need a coke in a bad way. Why are you doing this to me?

  2. Ooh love this meme! I also want to know what them flies are up to. Do they hover over a corpse? A piece of poo poo? A secret manuscript? A goat's headdress? What?

  3. Don't belittle your writing!I like the way you describe the woman. Instead of saying simply, "She looks like she's had a hard life," you point to her gaunt frame, calluses, gray face. Then you talk about Elsa in the stall so I know this must have something to do with horses. The flies don't intrigue me so much since there are always flies around stables, but for a random few lines, this says a lot.This is nice writing.
