Lucky 7 Meme

By Selane
Lucky 7 MemeIt's happened again!! I've been tagged by the awesome Victoria from Confessions of a Twenty Something Fiction Writer! This is a different kind of meme which requires you to go to page 77 of your current Manuscript, go to line 7, and copy 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs. Then you're supposed to tag 7 more bloggers! Now I have many, many manuscripts thrown around the house, under the bed, and right behind my sock drawer (all of them either end up in a pile or as substitute firewood), and I chose to use a teensy piece from one of my favorite books that I've written. It's a shame I can't release what the plot line is at the moment - but someday I will! *wink* So here we go. This is a scene in which the main heroine, Lissa, walks into a train station with the male lead, Patrick.

                          Upon seeing Patrick, the apples of the employee's cheeks turn pink. “Can I help you?” she asks.   “When is the earliest departure to Los Angeles?”
   “Let me check.” She looks at her computer and I lean on the counter beside Patrick. 
             He takes a step back and boldly assesses me while we wait.              I flush with warmth, uncomfortable under his gaze.    What?” I demand, coloring.           “You look good in my jacket,” he remarks, a faint smile tugging at his lips. “I could get used to this picture.”         And there you have it! This particular book is something that I have been working on since I was 15 years old. I'm working on so many different projects that I bounce from one thing to another. Some might say that this is a bad thing, but for me it works perfectly. It keeps the material fresh in my mind, and I always file away my ideas, no matter how old or minute they might seem. Well, enough of my rambling, let's get on with the tagging. I tag these 7 fantabulous bloggers for this meme! Bridget from Rants 'N' Ramblings Summer from Pride & Princesses  Christine Benson Debbie McCune from Notebook to Novel Lilliputian Journey  Going from Nobody to Somebody  Roza M.  
Happy Tagging, everybody! Lucky 7 Meme
