I have been challenged. I feel the need to heed the call. I know the fiction writer’s group I’m trying to more actives with have all been challenged by Juli so this doesn’t apply to them. However, if anyone reads this blog and feels like posting, do so and send me a link back.
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, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
4.Tag 7 other authors
Ok, now which work to choose?
From Under the Milky Way (Working Title. I listen to music when I write and find story titles in songs.)
“I don’t see it as anything I’ve lost or have given up. Honestly, I made the choice freely, knowing I couldn’t be a good husband and a father and be a priest as well. My family would always suffer for the good of the Church,” he says. “It wouldn’t be fair.”
“For what it’s worth, I think it’s cool you’re a priest,” he says.
Andrew smiles and nods his head. “Clean up and come back with us to Isabel’s. Maybe we can stop for some ice cream or coffee,” Andrew suggests.
“Nah, you don’t want me tagging along.”’
“Why not? You’re right when you said I don’t know you very well. It’s my fault for that. What are you going to do here by yourself till Mom and Dad come home?”
Now, I’m going to read all of the other excerpts. Funny thing, I looked at my other story, which takes place in the same universe. The protagonists are different but are related and the excerpt on page 77 has a short scene also with Andrew, a year or so before he becomes a priest. And Debi knows that he resembles Jared Padalecki from “Supernatural”. Oh, the shame.
