Lucky 7 Writing Meme

Carissa (http://carissa-taylor.blogspot.com/2012/03/lucky-7-meme_15.html) tagged me in the Lucky 7 meme. She was one of the extremely helpful people who have beta read my young adult novel, Distant Horizon, that I am working on. Looked like fun, so I thought I’d give it a shot. 🙂

Here’s how it works:

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

My 7 lines from page 77 of DISTANT HORIZON:

Lance glared at me. Too bad, he knew I wasn’t the most reserved person around here.

            Crush rubbed the back of his neck, tossing the welder’s mask under a desk. The mask crashed into a cardboard box and a small bolt rolled out, clattering to the floor on the other side of the room. “It has to do with my power; I don’t really– stop– well. My real name’s John, but no one calls me that.”

            “The name stuck,” Pops admitted.

            “Powers?” Lance asked. “What powers?”

Might help to know that the MC is getting introduced to her new teammates… and to the concept of super powers. Crush, of course, has momentum. Anyways, just a quick taste of my YA novel I’m working on with my fiance. 🙂

Tag, You’re It!

These are the people I’m tagging. Only had a couple I could think of right off hand, but anyways, I found this to be entertaining. No obligation to continue if you don’t want to, just thought you might be interested. 🙂
