Lucky Se7en Meme Blogger

Thanks Paulita for the Lucky Se7en Meme blog award!

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:-

Tara Chevrestt

Delaney Diamond

Anita Davison

Empi Baryeh

Diana Bold

Myne Whitman

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. 


  1. Fascinating Blog Eugenia, and thank you for adding me to your Meme list. It all helps to in this self-promotion thing so important to writers

  2. Thats a wonderful meme award. Congratulations!!

    1. Thanks, Sidne. It was lovely of Paulita to extend it to me!

  3. Hey, Eugenia. Thanks for the nomination. I actually did a Lucky 7 a couple of weeks ago on my blog. Love your snippet, especially this line: I don’t know too much about law enforcement but that would seem like one of those things higher ups frown on.

    1. Thanks, Empi. This particular manuscript needs a major rework - I'm changing the setting and possibly most of the characters. I don't even know if that line will make it through the slash and burn!

  4. I'm a writer who blogs if you ever want to tag me for anything in future :-)

  5. Eugenia, This WIP looks intriguing. Thanks for participating and funny that you're trying to change it to lucky six award (LOL). Hope your nominees keep it going.
