I was tagged by Jennifer in the new campaign tag going around.
Here are the rules:
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
I'm about thirty thousand words into my WIP, so page 77 is really...rough. And the placement of such page will probably move quite a bit once I'm done with the draft and start editing. The excerpt is from CURSED, where my MC has a curse placed on her by the local witch legend.
For a split second the world
disappears into a haze of darkness, stars sparking in front of my eyes when I
back, I slap Jordan as hard as I can, trying to free myself from his hand,
which is still tightly secured around my arm.
He barely flinches from my hit. He’s not even all that
surprised. Instead of pushing me again, I see him raise his arm. His hand turns
to a fist, and I can’t believe what’s about to happen.
His arm starts to move down, and my eyes close, as I brace myself for the oncoming attack.
I wish I could tell you exactly what's happening in this scene, but it's a pretty crucial moment. And pretty vague. Sorry about that.
Now for the tagging. I'm having a really hard time choosing seven people because most of you have already been tagged. Here are the lucky seven:
I look forward to reading all of your excerpts.
