As part of the award, I have to go to page 77 of my current work in progress, scroll down to line 7 and copy down the next 7 lines or sentences. I've tagged 6 (I know, I know it should be 7) authors to do the same thing so we can keep this going.
This is from an as yet unnamed paranormal/horror manuscript I'm working on -
Mark looked uncomfortable. “Got better uses for his officers, I guess.” He became absorbed in rubbing a dent in the countertop.
“Huh.” Something didn’t add up but I couldn’t figure out what it was. I wondered if I’d become a bone of contention between him and his boss. It stood to reason; there was no way the Chief could be happy about Mark going from surveilling me to suddenly playing house with me. I don’t know too much about law enforcement but that would seem like one of those things higher ups frown on.
And now for my nominations:-
OK, I know that's six, not seven but I'm new to the whole blogging writers thing and I live on a tiny island where meeting writers who blog doesn't happen every day so bear with me.
