What I’m Writing: Lucky Seven Meme

April 7, 2012
The other day I was lucky enough to be tagged in what is called the Lucky Seven Meme by the fabulous Miss Farrah Penn.
I actually hadn’t heard of it, but it wasn’t hard to find. Here’s how it works:

*Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP

*Go to line 7

*Copy down the next 7 lines (sentences or paragraphs) and post them exactly as they’re written. No cheating.

*Tag 7 authors

*Let them know

So, here are my seven lines (they were seven in my Word doc. I think it’s turned into eight here…) from page 77 of my WIP!

Well, first let me introduce the scene so that it’ll make sense. Willa and her mom are having a little heart to heart and Willa wonders aloud about her parents’ divorce and why they decided for her to live in New York with her mom instead of in Missouri with her dad. This is part of her mom’s response. (and, btw, it’s unedited. :/)

“But we also talked about the kind of life you’d have in Missouri. As I’m sure you know, Columbia isn’t a terrible place. The crime rate is obviously lower and it’s a college town, which automatically means you’d be surrounded by smart, cultured, diverse people. And you could have grown up with the sort of childhood both your dad and I had—going to town meetings and football games and ice cream socials. It really was a tough call, because I felt selfish for forcing a child to live in a place as rough and adult as New York is.”

I didn’t know how to respond to this.

So that’s that! Please do let me know if you have any comments/criticisms/ concerns about this in comments.

And my Lucky Seven are:

Michelle Andreani


Melissa at Only My Stories


Stephanie Pierce


Myra McEntire 😉

If you’ve already done this, I do apologize for my lack of attention. But I’m glad you were tagged!

Happy Saturday everyone!
