Gwen at Fulfilling Dreams has tagged me for the latest meme making the rounds of the campaigners. Please visit her fun and informative blog at: http://www.fulfilling-dreams.com/
You'll love the dinosaur. Trust me. Just go visit!
Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of my 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. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
At first I was really psyched because page 77 is one of the most fun parts I've written. But then line 10 is the punchline and line 7 is halfway into the joke. So when you read it out of context it isn't funny. And then lines 11-14 are the next scene. So it was totally not going to make sense.
Then I got anxious that this was going to be the first time anybody outside my Critique Partners ever saw part of my WIP and I decided I just couldn't do it.
I know. I'm no fun. But the writing isn't that great (yet) anyway and I would like to DAZZLE you when I finally do share something here from my WIP.
Anyway, if you are reading this, consider yourself tagged. Although, if you feel like I do, I totally understand. If you do decide to participate, drop me a line so I can read your awesomeness! (and so I can technically say I didn't break the chain...)
