Lucky 7 is just a bit of ‘blog fun’ for authors. I’m new to tagging, so I hope I get it right.
The instructions are:
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
Go to line 7
Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors to do the same
Here is the seven line extract from page 7 of my story Daughter of the Ark, one of my series about seafaring women.
God’s vengeance came in the middle of the night when the earth gave a mighty heave. We were woken by the sudden noise. Rain was drumming on the decks, setting the animals to squealing and stamping. Boats scraped against the wharfs and ropes creaked as the current pulled at us, and the waves splashed, kicked up by the wind that howled, plucking at lines and cloth so they too flapped and banged. The cliffs were groaning, and rocks tumbled down onto houses and cabins and the boats where our neighbours slept.
The final challenge is to pass this Lucky Seven on to seven authors (Like Laura, I hope this is not the point at which everyone hits the ignore button.) :
