The Lucky Seven Meme Tag Is On ...

The Lucky Seven Meme

Fellow scribe, Cordelia Dinsmore just tagged me last week to take part in the Lucky Seven Meme. Drat her! Just kidding, it sounds like a fun Shakespearean romp. Here be the rules:

1. Go thou to page 77 of your current MS
2. Get thee hence to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let each and every one of them know
(Unwritten rule - share the literary love)

Here's my lucky seven:
“I’m not sure what he’s saying, but by the way he’s checking you out, it looks like you’re gonna need a restraining order soon,” Treena said, as she plucked up Jordan’s sweatshirt.

“Did I just hear Jordan?” Drake asked excitedly, as he joined them.

Amanda nodded. “Jordan and Ravi were smuggled in Much’s bread cart.”

Suddenly people started screaming and backing away. A small girl, dirty-faced and wide-eyed, blurted out, “Lepers! Lepers!”

“God’s teeth!” the guard yelled, as he finally fought off the roosters. “Lepers in the courtyard! I beg thee, run!”

And who are my picks for the next lucky seven writers? Well, there are many more than seven, so here are a few from my great blogging network:

1. Linda Benson

2. Samantha Combs

3. Pat Flewwelling

4. Stephanie Cambell

5. Lynda Dunwell

6.  Mary S. Palmer

7. Eleni Konstantine

I hope they will all participate! And if there's no page 77 - or it's unfit for the faint-hearted, there's always page 7 as a fallback! Cheers everyone and have a great week!


  1. Ooh, ooh, I want to know what happens next! You're such a tease. I don't want to have to wait 'till the May release.
    Love the idea of The Lucky Seven Meme.

    1. Yeah, I thought it would be a neat way to get the word out (even if it is 7 lines!). Cheers!

    1. Mmmm - I believe you haven't been tagged lately. Love to see what you're working on! Cheers!

  3. I was tagged and I, thee, concur. Prithee, partake of the following verbage:

    Vienna stood and stared at her sister for a few minutes. Jesus. The goddamn party. Now what? They were trapped, stuck like squirming animals in a bear trap. She covered her own emotions as best she could. She might only have been born 2 minutes before her sister, but that still made her the older one, the responsible one.


    1. Eww- the vision of poor, helpless animals in a trap has scarred me for the day! You've peeked my interest in your new read,Samantha! Cheers!
