A few weeks ago Jen Black sent me the Lucky Seven meme. The rules are:
*go to page 77 of your current WIP
*go to line 7
*copy down the next 7 lines/sentences as written and post them on your blog or website
*tag 7 other authors
*let them know they’ve been tagged.
My WIP doesn’t have 77 pages yet, so here’s a bit from page 7. By way of context – The novel is set in a Biochemistry lab. Beth is getting over being dumped and Hibs is helping her by getting them both very drunk.
“I know. I know. You’re right. I’m so stupid.”
“You’re not stupid. You’re just…” what? Misguided? Naive? Trusting? Gorgeous. He shook his head to get rid of the thought. Focus, Hibbotson, focus. “You just fell for the wrong guy.” Arse. Where did that come from? Daytime TV? “I mean, you’re a nice person. You expect other people to be nice and play fair. Some of them don’t.” They started walking, Beth leaning heavily against him. Her footsteps were erratic. He used his arm around her waist to keep her upright.
I’m nosy, so I’ll pass it on to people whose next work I’m looking forward to:
Now I’ll stop messing around and go back to work.
