It amused me to do a meme called “The Lucky 7” on Friday the 13th.
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Copy down the next seven lines/sentences as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors
I did page 7 because page 77 was a paragraph about tea and teapots and this one was cooler out of context.
“Fog rolled across the stage from the each side of the ring. It filled the circus with the scent of pine smoke and the sweet scent of dried rose petals. The music faded into a silence that pressed against my skin. The crowd sat in a dark grey cloud, and not a cough or rustle could be heard.
A cymbal crashed, and lightning flashed in the tent. The audience yelled. But it was just a flash, followed by the rumble of thunder. Stars twinkled briefly in the fog before fading. The fog dissipated.”
I hate tagging–so do it if you like!
