Lucky 7 Meme, Campaign Winners, Komal's Giveaway

First, CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Fourth Platform-Building Campaigns first challenge. I made it to the quarter-finals and was completely thrilled and honored! Alas, the competition was tough and I didn't move on. There were so many different levels of winners and prizes - you can check it all out HERE.

Second, Thank You to Komal Lewis for her 100 Followers Giveaway. I won fifth place, a Kindle copy of Crossroads by J.J. Bond and a $5 Amazon Gift Card! Check out her awesome blog HERE.

AND NOW.......

The awesome Caitlin at All About Growing Up And Becoming A Famous Author has tagged me for the Lucky 7 Meme! And this is one of the easier meme's. No questions to answer, just post part of your MS and tag 7 people.

Here's what to do:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.

2. Go to line 7.

3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating.

4. Tag 7 authors.

5. Let them know.

Page 77, Line 7, 7 Lines

“This,” I pointed to the board. “This is just a beginning. We’ll be adding to it.”

“Yes,” said Riley, “that’s true. But I think we should prepare ourselves anyway.” She began gathering the empties on a tray. “I mean, who would’ve thought anyone would have had a reason to kill dad? I don’t trust anyone anymore.”

“She’s right. We need to keep an open mind,” said Simon. We can’t just cross someone off the list because we’ve known them a long time.”

We all agreed.

That's it! I followed the rules and didn't cheat. Definitely not my best.

See how easy that was? And now I get to pass this on to 7 people:

This 77/7/7 concept is fabulous. Glad you were able to share you 7 lines. They were great. Wish I knew what happened before and after it. :D

Thanks for tagging me. I definitely need to summon up some courage to do this one. Page 77 for me is in the middle of a childbirth scene. :/

Your lines were great!

Lady Gwen said...

Tonja, thanks. And, you have the perfect opportunity to show off some tension in your scene! Can't wait to read it:)

I'm sure most people would think that little snippets from their manuscript are insignificant and not their best. Me included! But this has me wanting to read more.

Lady Gwen said...

Caitlin, awww, thank you:)

This is intriguing. I'm wondering about the list and the murder plot.

I'll be sharing my 7 this week or next.

This is a fun meme. I like you excerpt, Gwen. I definitely want to know more.

Thanks for the tag.

Lady Gwen said...

Tara, it's a fun and easy memem and I love seeing what everyone is writing.

Medeia, I thought it was a plain boring scene at first, until I saw it through other's eyes. Yep, I guess a murder plot can be pretty interesting...

Southpaw, yes - I've seen it around a lot, too. I'm sure it will get to you!

Deborah, thanks. I like the fun and easy ones:)
