After pondering unsuccessfully about what to blog about all day, I was delighted that C.B. Wentworth has provided me with a topic! I’ve been tagged for the Lucky Seven Meme. Thanks, Wentworth, for including me in this fun challenge!
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript or work in progress
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs as they are written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 authors and let them know.

First, I have to admit something. The current draft of the novel that I’m working on (my second novel) hasn’t hit 77 pages yet. So, much to my chagrin, I have decided to post seven lines from the most recent version of the novel, which is from last years’s NaNoWriMo. Please excuse how rough it is (especially since it happens to be comprised completely of my bane: dialog).
From page 77, starting with Line 7 (which is in mid-sentence):
… mention of it as I passed by the throne room.
“Of course you may use it in this situation,” King Sage said, “but it should return to the Holt Realm with us once this is over.”
“I thought we agreed not to discuss this until the battle is over,” Grandfather replied.
“Indeed, but I do not wish for you to forget the matter.”
“How could I with you about? You will not allow me to forget anything.”
“If it was yours and it was in my realm, you would not allow me to forget it either.”
