Lucky 7 meme
Wahay, I've been tagged by super writer Kate Jackson Bedford to do the Lucky 7 meme. Here's what you do......: go to p77 of your current work, 7th line down, and paste the next 7 sentences. Then tag 7 others. This is open to adjustments. If it's a short story make it 7th paragraph etc. So here we go, my book is set on a desert island near the Seychelles (hence the gratuitous photo of a lovely palm fringed beach).
' Business had always provided him with a diversion, he loved the cut and thrust of it but he never had time to stop and stare. But stare he did, at Nancy. At her coffee coloured limbs, like a newly frothed cappuccino. At her long undulating hair which cloaked her shoulders. At her feet where she had kicked off her sandals to feel the soft moss underfoot and squeeze her pretty toes into the greenery as if she were part of it whilst she wrote her notes as if her life depended upon it. He thought of the flowers which covered and surrounded the sanctuary that was her hut. None of them glowed like she did.'
Thank you Kate. I now have to tag 7 others. Here's 3 to start with, anyone else who'd like to have a go, let me know and I can go and check it out. It's fun and it does force you to put a microscope to your work - not always comfortable, but a good exercise in self examination for writers!
So, I'm now tagging:
