Lucky 7 Meme Day!

ImageIt’s “Lucky 7 Meme” time for me today! I’ve just been tagged by the uber fun and talented Sandra Bunino. If you’ve never been to her website / blog, be sure to pay her a visit, especially on Mondays or Sundays when she often posts her “All Things Girl” column or Six Sentences from her works.

.

What exactly is The Lucky 7 MEME?  Here’s how it works:

▪                Go to p. 77 of current WIP

▪                go to line 7

▪                copy down next 7 lines/sentences & post them as they’re written

▪                Tag 7 other authors

▪                Let them know

Alrighty then. What’s my latest WIP? Hmm… I’m taking that to truly mean in process vs. nearly released, out on submission, etc.

OK, from My Fair Vampire, Dori is, yet again, receiving instruction from her grouchy vampire sire, Donovan, who speaks first.

“Midnight has large bathrooms.  Get some cowboy to whisk you in there for a quickie–yours not his.”  He smirked.  “But stay away from the doormen.”

“Maybe if you could teach me a little bit of the hypnosis I’d–”

“Damn! You’re like a broken record.”

So…now to tag seven other authors, hopefully ones who haven’t been tagged already. I did check most of these to make sure they’re Lucky virgins.  (Aw come on, you know what I meant!)

AW Flash Fiction Challenge 1/29 — “Long Time Coming”

English: *Description: Jane Austen Centre take...

I gave the brain to my YA-writing alter ego, Iris St. Clair, for my return to Absolute Write’s flash fiction challenge after a very long absence.  The challenge was to write a flash fiction story in ninety (90) minutes or less beginning when the theme word(s) was revealed.

“Long time coming” was our theme.  My short story is really more of a bit of back story to a YA novel I began during NaNo.  To read, I’ll need to send you to Iris’s digs.
