I've been tagged by Lisa Shambrook in the 7-7-7 meme.

Here’s the idea: Go to either page 7 or 77 of your current manuscript (or work in progress). Count down 7 lines, then copy the next 7 lines and post them up. After that, name 7 more authors to come out and play.

My current manuscript is 'Sleep' (working title) and this is the extract from Page 7 of it. Enjoy and feel free to comment.

It had worked, they were in synch. So it had only been a matter of time until the next step. 

It had been a long time since she had recalled any of the soft, gentler feelings she’d had towards him. She hadn’t dared; it hurt too much. And she’d been too consumed with rage. Now the rage was gone - she had quelled it. 

Lizzy felt the van start to slow down, and saw the steps of the court house ahead through the windscreen. 

And 7 authors to tag?

Susi Holliday
Matt Sloan
Jessica Maybury
Michael Sands
Mark Ethridge
Anna Meade
Cara Michaels

(Some writers are posting it to Facebook, so feel free to post there if you like).


  1. Ooo is she a criminal, victim or judge??? Intriguing :)

  2. Aw, it sounds sad...there's a lot of history packed behind those sentences, and pain. Sounds intriguing!

  3. You can see my Next Big Thing blog post to know more! But I have to keep some intrigue going! LOL
