Lucky 7: Seven lines from new works

I’ve been tagged by my Scottish crime-writer friend, Chris Longmuir. So there are the rules for Lucky 7: Seven lines from new works.

  • Go to page 77 of your current MS or WIP
  • Go to line 7
  • Copy the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs and post them as they’re written
  • Tag 7 more writers and let them know.

So here are my seven lines…

Mrs. MacDonald patted Letitia’s knee. “I’ll get us some tea. Hot and sweet is what you need.”

“I need more than tea! I need that awful girl out from under Weetshill’s roof.”

“Dinnae worry that pretty face o’ yours. We’ll work it out betwixt us.”


Robert entered the great hall to see his grandfather lifting the lid on the bench. He didn’t know until that moment that the piece of furniture held a place to keep secrets.

I’m passing the torch and tagging the following authors:

@LinnBHalton Linn B Halton

@WellsNicky Romance That Rocks Your World

@RosemaryGemmell Romancing History

@MandyBaggot Mandy Baggot

@TalliRoland Talli Roland

@sherylbrowne Sheryl Browne

@carver22 Bill Kirton

  1. I love the Lucky Seven Meme, and what a great little excerpt. Whhoop! Thanks so much for tagging me, Melanie! I shall get onto my seven on Friday. Yay! This is such fun… Thanks again!

  2. Sshh Chris… don’t tell. I was editing when I got the award so since I had the document open, it wasn’t too hard to flip back to page 77 and copy and paste the required lines.
