This has been one of those weeks where I have been so busy that I have barely had time to think. Between my regular job, a deadline for a new writing gig I have landed (I will share details on that later), and the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games, I never had time to prepare a mash-up for today. I was going to find time to put one together and just post it much later when I received a message that I had been tagged by Lisa Hall-Wilson over at the blog she shares with Marcy Kennedy, Girls with Pens. Curious, I went to check it out and found that Lisa had tagged me in something called Lucky 7 Meme. Here are the rules:
– Go to page 77 of your current MS or WIP
– Go to line 7
– Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs, and post them as they are written
– Tag 7 new authors
This sounded like fun, so I pulled out my WIP. Here is the excerpt I found on page 77 of my fantasy novel, A Pristine Heart.
Rhoswen smiled back at her. “Now that you are assured your friend is unharmed,” she said turning to Reeve, “would you mind dressing the wound you gave me?”
Reeve immediately set to work. While he was working Kaelyn tried to sort through the foggy events of Rhoswen’s attack. There was something she felt sure had caught her attention during the time she was waking up, but it remained elusive. Suddenly she remembered.
“Do you two know each other?”
Reeve’s back stiffened at her words and his head snapped to look at her.
“Yes,” Rhoswen answered first. “We Galdors know all the –”
“Hunters,” Reeve finished, interrupting her; Rhoswen looked at him in surprise, but did not say anything else. “What made you ask that?”
“Just something I remembered from when I was waking up.”
There you go. I hope that you enjoyed that small excerpt. It is now my turn to tag 7 others, so here goes.
Finally, I have a new vlog to share with you guys in which I discuss some very disturbing changes being made to a favorite childhood cartoon.
