I got this idea from Jennifer Armintrout, the author who has been reviewing Fifty Shades of Crap. I love this woman. If I could find the male version of this woman, I’d want to marry him in a heartbeat, so we could laugh ourselves silly until dementia sets in. Jen (I hope I can call her that) was tagged by another author, Brynn Paulin, who posted this challenge on her blog as well.
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Post on your blog or Facebook page the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors to do the same.
I won’t tag 7 other authors, but I encourage everyone who wants to do this to either leave a comment here with your 7 sentences, or leave a link to your blog after you have posted your 7 sentences. Doesn’t matter whether you’re pubbed, unpubbed, write recipes or dirty jokes.
Here are 7 sentences from my WIP tentatively titled The Meatball Mistress:
Ryan shifted uncomfortably, letting out a long exhale. “Look Shelly, I enjoy spending time with you, but…” His voice trailed off. But, what? What was he supposed to tell her? That he never saw himself getting married again due to his first disastrous experience? That despite being almost thirty years old he still felt like a teenager inside?
I don’t know about you, but I think this challenge sounds fun, and you know me, I’m the Queen of FUN!
SO GO TO IT!
