I was tagged by Chantel Rhondeau this week to participate in the Lucky 7 meme. This looked kind of fun, so I decided to give it a try. Here are the rules:
Go to p. 77 of current WIP
go to line 7
copy down next 7 lines/sentences & post them as they’re written
Tag 7 other authors
Let them know
This excerpt is from my current WIP, Sixth South. This scene falls in the middle of a dinner party that turns somewhat tense:
“This salad is delicious, Kel,” Joni gushed. “Best I’ve ever had.”
“It’s just a classic Caesar,” Kelsey demurred. She’d never known her friend to express so much enthusiasm over a bowl of lettuce.
“Still, it’s delicious,” Joni announced. “Isn’t it, Tom?”
“Sure, it’s fine.” He speared a crouton with his fork.
“So, Josh,” Sarah said. “You said your last name is Connely? Any relation to Dale Connely?”
“My father, actually.” He took a drink of water. “I hope that’s not a problem.”
And now I have to tag 7 other authors. These are either other writers I know from Critique Circle or from twitter. Some write in the same genre I do, and some in a different genre. Check them out if you’re interested:
