The Lucky Seven Meme

I was tagged by the charming Freya Morris to take part in Jaycee's Lucky Seven Meme. As a light-hearted bit of relief from my usual ramblings on this blog, here goes...

The rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
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 am actually going to cheat anyway and use my last manuscript rather than my current one. I have a couple of people about to read my current one for me and I don't want to give away bits of the plot to them on the first draft! It's probably bad luck or something...)


“I hope you will find it at some point,” Rowan said, his reasonable voice only irritating Kit more. “But the longer you stay away from Earth, the safer you’ll be.”

“I’ve been alright for the last 13 years.”

“But now you’re the Crosser. And Hinton Blewitt will be out to find you.”

The name rang a bell. Kit ran through everything he had been told, until it came to him.

“The chief of the Colliders?”

“That’s him. He lives on Earth and you don’t want to be going anywhere near him, kid.”

  6. Dan Purdue
  7. Derek

Only participate if you want to! A good way of finding out what all my writer friends are up to...
(If you don't have 77 pages, try page 7. If you don't have a page 7, get writing!)


  1. Thanks for tagging me, but my page 77 is not suitable for mass consumption at all (very, very racey stuff!) I'll have to go for page 7 instead!

  2. Thanks Chloe, just seen and working on my own seven now. I presume we're not doubling back and meming the memers? (I suspect those aren't real words...yet!)

  3. Interesting excerpt. I've ben tagged for this one, but as my MS hasn't reached page 77 I may have to bend the rules a bit.

  4. I wanted to tag you Martin, and then realised Freya had!

    Angeline I am shocked and intrigued ;)

    I think there's probably a no re-meming rule, Derek. Ooooh, now meme seems like a funny word, I've heard it too many times today!

  5. Great stuff Chloe - very intriguing. As you say, it's been a nice bit of fun and a glimpse into other writer's worlds.

  6. Looks like we're all finding Meme oh!

  7. I've finally got around to posting my Lucky 7 Meme post (minus any rudeness!)
