A Sneak Peek of What’s to Come
Today I’m about to do something I have never done on this blog. I’m going to post 7 sentences from page 77 of my WIP. Scary business for this author. Why am I doing this? Simple, writer Holli Moncrieff (A Life Less Ordinary) tagged me to take part in a lucky 7 meme. Thus the 7 sentences from page 77. See, had you known it was this easy for me to spill the beans I’m betting a few of you would have tried this before. I’m a good sport. What can I say?
This is an excerpt from my current YA novel titled :To Fly With a Broken Wing
(This story is told in first person by Cammie. Here goes.)
The truck sputtered a few more times before Hux cut the switch. If a truck could fart it would be old Hux’s. Butch was sitting on the passenger’s side, head stuck out the window. I reached in and patted him. His fur was slick and smooth, soft as a baby’s bum. His tongue slid out of corner of his mouth, pink and shiny as a junk of pig’s liver. I knew Butch found it hot sitting there in the truck but he had no say in the matter. That’s something Butch and me had in common. I didn’t have a say in anything either.
Butch was a black and white bulldog, homely as a stump fence. I didn’t hold that against him, though.
So there you go, 7 lines from page 77. Aren’t you glad you dropped in?
Here are the rules of this meme so writers beware:
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
5. Let them know
Now to list
my victims 7 authors:
Now if you want to make this interesting why not try guessing the next 7 sentences of “To Fly With A Broken Wing.” Just kidding… Hoping you all had a beautiful first day of spring. Here in Nova Scotia it was gorgeous. Happy Spring!
