If you're unfamiliar with this meme, the idea is for the readers of your blog to get a teeny tiny peek at your Work In Progress. I've enjoyed this meme. It's awesome how many people have such exciting snippets to share.
Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current WIP
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines/paragraphs and post them as they're written.
4. Tag 7 other authors.
I was tagged last month and shared seven lines on page 77 of Effigy so this time time around, I'm going to share the seven lines from page 77 of Second Nature which is Effigy's sequel. This bit of a scene finds us smack in the middle of an argument between the main character, Cate and another character, Aaron.
"Oh, you are in for a world of hurt, John Boy," she said. "The second you put me down— the very second my feet touch the ground— I'm gonna make you bleed."
That made Aaron laugh. Cate didn't appreciate it.
"You don't think I can take you?" she asked. "Because I can. And I will."
He laughed more. "Mostly I think I don't fight girls."
"That makes two of us," Cate said. "But in your case, I'd be willing to make an exception."
"Are you calling me a girl?"
"It's an insult to girls everywhere, I know," Cate said. "I'll make it up to them after I've finished making you cry, you pain in the ass emo freak."
Now this is the part where I'm supposed to tag seven other authors and this is the part I always skip. But, as I said last time, if you're a writer who's curious about what may lurk on page 77 of your own manuscript and want to share it with the world, please consider yourselves tagged.
Hope everyone has a terrific Monday. See y'all tomorrow.
