Lucky Seven

Faye Robertson tagged me in this fun little thing making the rounds on the writing circuit.

Here are the rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS

2. Go to line 7

3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

4. Tag 7 other authors


Okay, so this is from the WIP I am struggling to edit, currently titled Rosie and Tanner:-

‘Rosie there are certain things you don’t discuss with a daughter.’

‘Things you don’t discuss with a daughter. I’ll say. You’ve let me go to my own father’s funeral without telling me I was related. I think I am owed some explanations.’

‘He was never your father really. He just supplied the sperm.’

I tag :

1. Sue Johnson
2. Teresa Morgan
3. Sue Watson
4. Jessica Thompson
5. Sarah Pearson
6. Karina Buchanan
7. Sally Jenkins

It is just for fun so it doesn't matter if you don't want to do it.


  1. Hi Morton - thanks for the tag but at the moment I don't have a page 77 so I'll have to pass. By the way, I think the last line you quoted from your current WIP would make a great opening for a novel or short story.

  2. I'm just about to tag you... and just found you tagged me. Ah, well, it evens us up :D

  3. Haha, I love that line: he just supplied the sperm!

  4. Mine's already up lol But thanks for the tag :)

  5. I love this - talk about conflict!

    I just did this on Monday, but thank you anyway :-)

  6. Sally - Maybe next time.

    Teresa - Great minds and all that. Thank you for thinking of me.

    Annalisa - Thank you.

    Karina - Everyone is at it. Lol.

    Sarah - I'll have a look at yours. Thanks for the compliment.

  7. A great 7 sentences that show us a massive conflict to be worked through!

  8. Thanks Rebecca - I'm quite encouraged by the reaction I'm getting!

  9. Another source of inspiration!
