HIGH ROLLING LUCKY SEVEN
The always fabulous Tami Clayton has tagged me in the writing game, “The Lucky 7 Meme.”
These are the rules–because of course there are rules:
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, and let them know.
So this is my pg.77, line 7 — next 7 lines, from the bajillionth draft of my current work in progress, a Mainstream Literary novel with some really long sentences:
Incredible! There it is. Right in front of her.
Her legs peddle fast and furious, twin beaters churning the air, ancient rubber tires slapping the uneven pavement in complaint, her insides rolling and crashing like waves as she closes the distance. Someone is shouting—then a woman’s high-pitched wail—the hysterical squall going on and on until all at once obliterated by the approaching fire engines careened across town from the station several blocks away. The steady bleat of sirens cracking open the night and swallowing every other sound.
Willa drops the bicycle on its side, not caring where it falls; her feet dragging lead as she moves closer, eyes wide and staring in an attempt to fully absorb this terrible thing she sees.
And now, quick, while they’re not looking, this is me tagging the next Lucky 7:
Okay, fellow scribes, show us your 77, 7, 7 😀 (Keep in mind, if your not up to page 77 and you still want to play, you can use page 7 for your 7 lines.)
