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:

1. Sonia G Medeiros

2. Christi Corbett

3. Diane Tipert

4. Carol Garvin

5. Abigail Sharpe

6. Darlene Foster

7. Jan Coates

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!
