The lovely Lena Corazon has tagged me as one of her Lucky 7 to share a snippet from my work in progress. This meme is winding its way around a bunch of authors you know, enabling us all to have a peek at the work of people all around us. Take a look at Lena's work - she's shared 7 sentences from page 77 of PATH TO THE PEACOCK THRONE, her WIP.
Here is mine:
7 lines from page 77 of Boundless as the Sea
Odd, to stab a man like a side of beef. Not as easy as it looked. The man staggered, his hands on Cranbourne’s shoulders. He stepped back, let him fall. Left the knife where it was.And now who to pick? Here are my seven tags:
“Hey!” Cranbourne’s voice was harsh, broken like a stage whisper. That would be the punch to the throat he had endured earlier. The fourth man glanced back, saw his fallen comrades. He made a good decision, and ran.
Cranbourne watched him go. There was no heart in him for a chase, not with blood crusting his mouth and bruises stiffening every muscle in his body.
And here's what they have to do:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs, and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 authors, and let them know.
