I've Been Tagged! The Lucky 7 Meme!



I‘ve had an exciting last few days, but now it’s Monday, time for a little fluff.

It seems, I’ve been tagged by not one, but three awesome blogger buddies, Freya Morris, Elise Fallson and C. M. Brown, for the Lucky 7 Meme.  Thank you so much for thinking of me!  Go visit them and follow along.  They are great commenters, and we all know how much we love comments.  And now for the game…

Here are the rules: 

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

The following seven sentences are from my current manuscript, THE MISTAKEN:

…  I barely caught sight of the large SUV as it slammed into me from my left.
Glass shattered and metal screamed.  The air bags exploded in my face.  My thoughts flew to my baby and Ty as the heat from the SUV’s engine rushed against my side. My breath was expelled violently from my body in a loud whoosh, and I felt myself snap from within.
Then everything went quiet.   And all I could see was black.

So that’s it.  What do you think?  Now, here are my seven taggees:

They are all worth a visit, and a follow, as well!
What, you’re still here?  What are you waiting for?  Go visit!

Fantastic excerpt, Nancy. You transported me effortlessly to that scene, the heart pumping, the palms sweating and yes, I even felt the heat from the other vehicle engine. Wow.

Thanks for the tag. Great timing - my posting day is tomorrow. Swing by to see my excerpt. I haven't checked yet what's in my "777 spot", but let's hope it's worth putting on a display :-)

Let's do coffee soon, okay? Hugs.
