I don't usually do memes, because I haaaaate having to pick recipients (THE PRESSURE AAARGH), but this one's kind of fun. My lovely critique partner Brooke tagged me.
I can't really share an excerpt from TICK-TOCK, but I can share from one of my current WIPs. Neither are up to 77 pages yet, so I went with page 7 of the manuscript.
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. No cheating.
4.) Tag 7 authors.
5.) Let them know.
So... here we go. From Page 7 of THE SEA BLEEDS SALT.
Mr. Collins points at me, hate in his eyes. “You better watch your smartass daughter, Dusyai. I have half a mind to lock her out if she’s even a second past curfew again.”
“Half a mind is right,” I say.
“Maya,” my parents say together this time.
I shut up and Collins points the muzzle of his gun at the girl. She’s surprisingly calm, staring into the barrel like there’s nothing in there that could possibly frighten her.
There you go! Fun times. Guns and whatnot. As far as tagging, I'm marking the seven most recent followers of my blog. Here they are:
1.) Leigh Covington
2.) Jessica Salyer
7.) M.C. Eging
