Although I ran as quickly as I could, her tweet tagged me in a game of Lucky 7 Meme. She must have heard from my other author friend, Scott Bury, (@ScottTheWriter) that I'm slow... a slow runner, I mean.
Okay, I'll play. Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current WIP (work in progress).
2. Go to line seven.
3. Copy down the next seven lines or sentences as written and post them to your blog or website.
4. Tag seven authors.
5. Let them know they've been tagged.
I don't have 77 pages in my book yet so I decided to go to page 7 for my lines. These are from my WIP (untitled), a middle-grade fiction that I hope to release sometime this summer.
"That's okay Mrs. Mays, we can't stay very long. Scotty and I have a mystery to solve."
"Oh, that sounds very exciting, boys! What kind of mystery?" she asks.
"Didn't you hear about Barnaby Q. Percival? I don't wait for her answer. "He's gone and he left his squeaky toy behind."
"Well that's not like Barnaby at all; that mutt wouldn't take two steps without that slobbered-up old thing."
Because I write for children, I've decided to tag seven indie children's book authors who are fellow members of The Independent Author Network. Tag, you're it! Now write a blog post using the rules listed above. Don't forget to tag seven other authors. Have fun!

I look forward to reading your seven lines!
Until then... stay cool!
