Bonus Post for the Week: Lucky 7

Hello, and welcome to Friday, a Friday I sorely need!

So...you know how I'm behind on responding to comments and visiting everyone back? Because I'm all overwhelmed and jazz? Yeah, well, I also completely spaced posting something on Monday that I'd said I would post. I had sent myself an email as a reminder, which usually works really well for me. Only, guess what else I'm behind on? Yeah, checking and replying to emails. Every time I sign in to make sure there is no urgent email I must immediately deal with, I see the exponential increase in unread emails and want to pound my head into the desk and sob a little. Hahaha! Just kidding, I wouldn't sob. Not a little, anyway.

Now, the lovely Rachel Pudelek, over at A Rainy Day Writer in the Evergreen State tagged me in what I think is a fun meme: the Lucky 7 Meme.


The rules are as follows:
Here Are The Rules:
1) Go to page 77 or your current MS
2) Go to line 7
3) Copy down the next 7 lines as they're written--no cheating
4) Tag 7 other writers
5) Let them know

As usual, I will be skipping 4 and 5, BUT I would happily tag all of you in this meme, so I would be delighted if you posted it on your page and left me a link so I could check yours out. Tell them it's from me or don't, it's totally up to you.

Mine:

"Kieran would have to figure this out quickly, or he was certain Justin would set out on his own. He knew Justin would never survive out there. He was smart, but not street smart, as he’d heard it referred to in books and movies. He could figure out science and math, anything logical, but not other people, and certainly not what he needed for survival on his own.

'So be it. Just give me my two months first, okay?'"


That's it. If you choose to take this and run with it, please let me know in the comments! I hope everyone has a great weekend! And sorry to Rachel for being nearly a week late!

May you find your Muse.

  3. Yay, he can figure out science and math! That's my kinda guy! But I'm guessing that in this story he needs some kind of survival skills...

  4. Sounds like a fun way to give readers a taste of what an upcoming novel has to offer.

    While I don't have an MS, I could possibly go to page 7 of my short movie script...I guess?!

    It will be cool to see what participants come up with for this Lucky 7 tag.

  7. I'm sure my Maths teacher once said you didn't need anything else if you were good at Maths... so I'm sure Justin will be fine. Perhaps he confounds them with algebra?

  8. Bet he will befriend some one who supplies the rest.
    Plus with maths, he has logical and analytical skills taped down.

  12. Tania, thanks!

    Christine, thank you! I hope your weekend was a good one.

    Rachel, you are guessing correctly!

    Nicole, I think that would be just fine! Let me know if you do it.

    Becca, understood and LOL!

    Mimi, that's okay!

    Annalisa, I'm thinking having math abilities means you may have some logic abilities, which can get you out of trouble. Then again, I once knew a mathematician...

    Rek, that makes a lot of sense, and I bet you're right! ;-p

    Talli, thank you!

    Susan, oh so much!

    Jo, fun! I will come check it out.

    Misha, thanks!
