TAG- I’m It and I’m Lucky!

Posted Mar 29 2012, 12:30 pm in , ,

Claire Legrand, author of The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls (August, 2012), started a game of author tag. Here are the rules:

If you’re tagged, you have to do the following:

  1. Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
  4. Tag 7 other authors

The amazing Bill Cameron tagged me and wait to you see the company in which he listed me. *tingles*

Here are seven lines from TMI (Too Much Information) page 77. (Blog formatting may make  this look more than seven lines… sorry.)

“No!” He stood up so fast, his chair fell over. “This is your life, not mine.”

“Chase, this-”

“No, Dad! I don’t want to work in the store for the rest of my life! I’m not you. Why don’t you get that?”

“Then what do you want to do, Chase? What do you want to do so badly that you can’t stay?”

His fury spilled over. “I DON’T KNOW! I have no clue and THAT’S why I want to go to school – to figure out who I am! Four years, Dad. Is that too much to ask?”

Here are my seven writers:

  1. Jeannie Moon
  2. Jennifer Gracen
  3. Karla Nellenbach
  4. Kim Sabatini
  5. Laurie Boyle Crompton
  6. Kari Lynn Dell
  7. Linda Grimes

You’re it! Have fun.

    Nice! Very tense. I like it!

    And I must’ve known you were going to tag me, because I posted my Lucky Seven snippet on Monday. 🙂

  2. Gee, thanks. Posting the lines is easy. Finding seven people who haven’t been tagged yet is getting to be a challenge. But off I go….

  3. I like the sound of this. Full of tension!

    The whole story is full of tension so it’s been a real challenge to write. 🙂
