This week the lovely Donna (http://donna-lostandfound.blogspot.com) awarded me the Lucky 7 MME award. As did the fabulous clraven (http://clraven.wordpress.com) although unsurprisingly (and I mean that in the nicest possible way) they’ve decided to call it se7en!
Of course, I have to earn the award… So what does this entail?
1. I have to go to page 77 of my current WIP
2. I have to scroll down to line 7
3. I copy down the next 7 lines (although clraven also offer the option of the next 7 sentences or next 7 paragraphs at this stage as well) and post them as they are written.
4. I tag 7 authors to do the same
5. I then let them know
So, having followed these instructions to the letter, here are 7 sentences from ‘Little White Lies and Butterflies’… Happy reading, everyone.
You obviously have an over active imagination, I scolded, continuing to observe the rucksack, rope carrying individuals around me. As instead of the host of handsome, muscular, athletic types that I had hoped to feast my eyes upon, somewhat disappointingly, it’s fair to say I couldn’t have come face-to-face with a scruffier group of crag rats if I’d tried. I mean wide legged sweat pants were horrific at the best of times, but to wear them a couple of inches too short… well, that was just scandalous. And what was with the dread locks and Jesus sandals? Although any disenchantment I was feeling at that point was nothing compared to the developing nausea I was starting to experience – courtesy of the array of tighter than necessary leggings that were on display. After all, everyone knows these garments aren’t just offensive per se, when it comes to a man’s particular body parts, an air of mystery needs to be maintained at all times… Honestly, it was enough to make a girl shudder.
So now for my nominations as to who I’d like to receive the Lucky 7 MEME or se7en ward.
Now I shall look forward to reading all your works in progress.
