The Lucky 7 meme

I’ve been tagged by the awesome tfwalsh for The Lucky 7 meme. It is a fun little thing where you get to post 7 lines of your WIP. Just a nice tantalizing little tease. So don’t forget to leave a comment on my seven lines of DISTILLATION, which is having a good run with some agents right now (*visualize me praying it comes to a great end – I need the luck right now, I think*) After that, stop by some of the blogs below and don’t forget awesome tfwalsh, who I thank for tagging me in her meme.

A 7 line excerpt from my paranormal women’s fiction DISTILLATION:

“Why would anyone bury a child in their cellar?” I cried. “It doesn’t make any sense.”
“Yes. It does to the old world mind, Alice.” Lydia crossed her arms. “There is an archaic belief that burying a still born child in the hearth will bring good luck to future births.”
I dropped my head into my hands. It was hard to focus. “But I heard it crying.” I sniffled, swatting at my wet eyes with a sleeve, trying to steady myself. “It lived.”
Lydia, who was gazing now out into the night, snapped her head around to look at me. “You heard it?”
I guess that’s a good place to hop in to the story. It is refering to the discovery of the bones, which is my hook.

Now for the basic rules of this meme:

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.
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

So, now I have to tag seven more people. And here they are:
Jayne at  A Novice Novelist
Storyteller
Brenda Drake Writes
Handling My Dream
Inner Owlet
Kate MacNicol’s Blog
JuneBug at My Blog
So there it is. Sorry if I surpised anyone. I am trying to get better at being less of a lurker. LOL.

  2. Ariel, I don't think you're going to be unpubbed for long, this was an amazing excerpt from your manuscript. Thanks for tagging me in the Lucky 7 Meme, I'll tag some friends when I get back from vacation and check out the other blogs you tagged here.
