Lucky 7 Meme


Lucky me! I got tagged in the Lucky 7 meme going around not once, not twice but three times! First by the lovely Kiersten Krum on her Tumblr. I can't find the post, but go poke around, she posts lost of hot guys and hilarious jokes. Then by the lovely Maisey Yates with some fuchsia lipstick and the Thea Harrison with guns and swords. 


 I am forced to confess that I'm not so prolific that I have three manuscripts I'm working on at the same time, so y'all get the same snippet. 

Here are the rules:

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

From the manuscript I am painfully revising this month (and last month too).

Two could play that game. “Since things are slow this afternoon, I’m getting started writing a new program to track the invoices and sales. I can write something where the data only has to be input once, instead of the three or four times the current software requires.”
“I don’t know about that. We’ve had the same software in the store for almost ten years. It’s reliable.”
“It is, but it’s also slow and outdated. Since you don’t want to invest in something new, I can at least write a quick program that would make the process a whole lot faster.” Then they could enter the twenty-first century, and as an added bonus Chris could look forward to a few evenings busy writing code instead of making small talk over his father’s favorite reality show.



Check out Maisey and Thea's blogs to see who else they tagged! Or maybe you want to post your own Lucky 7? If you do, let me know in the comments so I can check it out.

  1. All the Lucky 7s I've read so far have lots of conversation, perhaps it's just coincidence or perhaps it's just because authors like to make their manuscripts more 'immediate', interesting. Thanks for posting Julia.

  2. Now that you say that, I think you're right about there being a lot of dialogue. Funny I hadn't noticed before. These are mostly still WIP, maybe that factors into it? I know I've written scenes that were mostly just the conversations and had to go back and fill out the scene with, you know, everything else. ;-P
