Lucky 7 Meme... From Wendy Laharnar, Rebecca Russell Ryals, and Anita Davidson

 I am not sure if you are supposed to answer these blog posts en-masse but I don't have many WIP to call on... so Thank you to Wendy, Rebecca and Anita for including me in the fun... Here's my contribution.

 First off, an explanation of what it's all about... Each author is requested to

*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines/sentences as written and post them on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors
*let them know they've been tagged

 So here we go... page 77 of  'Signs' (working title) seven lines from the manuscript...

“Don’t look now, but I think we are about to have company.” Connelly’s muttered warning came while Kyler quaffed a flagon of thick brown ale. He wiped his mouth and belched, finally content and quite prepared to ignore Connelly’s guests. 

Connolly continued, “Let me do the talking. Tammy, that applies to you too. Be ready to move, Kyler. Don’t go to sleep just yet.”

“Move?” Moving wasn’t high on Kyler’s list of priorities. Sleep filled the first three spaces. Enjoying another meal occupied the rest of his agenda. “What would make me want to move?”

Now, I must find seven more authors to include in this exercise...

I don't think you can include the authors who chose you, but why not go and visit Wendy Laharnar's Facebook page, Anita Davidson's The Disorganised Author or Rebecca Russell Ryal's Blog and see what others have produced with their Lucky 7 Meme exercises.

Meanwhile.. I have tagged...
Adriana Ryan 
Adriana posted her seven lines on Facebook. :)

Thanks for dropping in.

What do you do in case your WIP is less than 77 pages?
Quote empty lines?

Anyway it is interesting to read what kind of memes authors like.

LOL, If you haven't done 77 pages, I guess you either write frantically or hmm.. resize your pages? LOL. Hadn't thought of that one Edi.

LOL I had to laugh at, "Move? What would make me move?" That sounds like me!! ;)

As I mentioned, I did mine on FB, but I can't figure out how to copy the exact link. But here are the lines from my manuscript!

Here are my lines from Enlightened, my WIP:

"Would you mind if I used your computer, Cal? I’d like to get some work done, and Nisha doesn’t have an internet connection at her house.”

I blushed, feeling like an incompetent teenager. “Internet’s expensive.”

“Of course not,” Cal answered.
“You’re welcome to use my office for as long as you’d like, Roshni.”
My mom put her hand on his arm.

“Thank you, dear.”

I managed not to vomit at all the niceness, and we made it outside.

Adriana, thanks for sharing your lines here. It's interesting to me, to see your character's name is Cal. hehe. Good choice!

I like your 'vomit at the niceness'.. LOL. Says a lot in a few carefully chosen words.
