Here are the rules to which I must adhere:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs, and post them as they’re written.
4. Tag 7 authors, and let them know.
So, here it is, admittedly not my favorite part of my work in progress.
Harry’s coughing jag pulls Anna out of her head. She pats his back, forgetting how angry she is, how afraid she is of what might come next. As his cough deepens, he bends over and Anna bends with him, searches his eyes to make sure he is okay. The coughing stops and Harry straightens up. He catches his breath and crushes the cigarette butt under his shoe. When he is upright and in control of himself, Barb comes outside and hands him the large shopping bag full of leftovers. He reaches out for it but before the bag is fully in his hand, it crashes to the ground.
And finally, I choose the following seven authors to join the Lucky 7 Meme (hopefully they haven’t already been tagged):
If you have not made it to page 77 yet, you can use page 7, 7th line, 7 lines from there. Looking forward to reading your excerpts!
