Lucky 7 Meme – Tag You’re It!

Have been tagged again in this fun meme, this time by my friend Julie Butcher! Here are the rules:

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.
After that I’m supposed to tag seven other authors but as most people I know have been tagged (once or thrice), I’ll just invite anyone reading this post who has a WIP or MS to join the fun on their blog! And let me know….
Here are the next seven lines from WARRIOR OF THE NILE, to which I am currently doing major revisions. (I swear they were the next seven lines in the WORD document but they got scrunched up a bit here on the blog and so are more like 8 or 9 lines!):

Khenet brought two plums out of his cloak pocket and offered one to Tiya. “I definitely think you and I are being followed.”

Accepting his gift, she frowned. “By who? Who knew we were coming? Who would want to stop us?”

Biting into the remaining plum, he swallowed and wiped the juice from his lips. “Robbers most likely. We’re a tempting target. I’ve tried to spread the information we’re under the direct protection of the gods but thieves and bandits don’t tend to believe in anyone’s superstitions other than their own. Once we leave the caravan tomorrow we’ll have to drive hard and fast to Viper Nome, to avoid any pursuers.”

Let’s stay with the caravan. Live life as nomads,” she said, gazing at the campfires, listening to the laughter.“If only we could.”

  1. Sounds like they are on a major mission. You mentioned caravan — so, are there other folks with them at this campfire? Nice writing! Q: 7 Meme? Do I post here in your comment section? I’ve never done it before!

  2. You can put the link to your blog, if you want to post your 7 lines from page 77 on your own page! Thanks for the kind words…it’s really a bit frustrating to pluck 7 lines arbitrarily. At least with Six Sentence Sunday we can pick and choose a bit more!
