Thanks so much to Suzie Tullett 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.
Then I tag 7 authors to do the same thing, which might be difficult because some of my author friends are writing shorter works, but I'll give it a shot.
So here's a brief section from page 77 of my book The Summer of France:
I know, a phone call. Big deal, right? Except, it became a big deal when I lived in a foreign country and hardly spoke the language, and no one else was around to answer the phone.
For just a moment, I considered not answering. Then I imagined staying at a bustling hotel where the waiter would bring me a mixed drink, maybe a pina colada or a mai tai, and on the way to serve me, he’d stop to answer that ringing phone. But he didn’t, and I couldn’t let it go, so I lunged for it.
I tried to say it like a question, but I’m afraid it came out sounding more like an offering for sunburn relief – “Aloe.”
Now for my nominations of seven writers to receive the award, some of whom haven't blogged recently so they'd better step it up:
What Women Write
Aguja at Wordstitcher
Michelle at Carpe Diem and Lemon Tarts
Jacob Leib Cohen
Pat at Suburban Kamikaze
