Okay, this is something I did in the past, that I thought would be fun to do again. And who knows, it may just give you luck from the writing gods (if you're at all superstitious). To me, it's just something fun to do.
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 authors.
5. Let them know.
“You colossal jackass!” Ivy screeched, pummeling him with her fists. “What do you think you’re doing?”
He caught her by the wrists. “Just testing the waters for you. You wouldn’t want to go beyond the pale of polite society, now, would you?”
Ivy sat back and glared. “Fine. You’re the one who’s going to feel like an ass when they agree I’m right.”
“Want to make a wager on that?”
She didn’t flinch. “Name your terms.”
“We’ll take five calls. Majority rules. If I win, you do my laundry for a month.”
“And if I win…” She trailed off, considering what she wanted. Inspiration hit. “When I win, you have to wait on the girls and me, hand and foot, two weeks from now when we watch the five-hour version of Pride & Prejudice.”
Okay, I just tagged people who are following me on my blog. Don't feel obligated to do it, but who knows, it may bright you a little writing luck...and I'm sure we can all use it. :D
