Tag, I’m it.
Steven Montano hit me up to be part of this Lucky 7 meme. In Steven’s words, here’s how it works:
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next seven lines/sentences exactly as they are
- Tag 7 other authors
Doesn’t sound like too much work, so I think I have the time to indulge. I’m currently working on books three and four of my Khirro’s Journey heroic fantasy, so let’s see what’s happening on page 7 of book three. Oh, yes. Khirro and his magician companion, Athryn, have just narrowly escaped death at the hands of a ferocious giant.
“Get dressed. Better to use sunlight for travel than sentiment,” Khirro said slapping the magician’s shoulder as he rose.
Athryn stood and brushed sand from his shirt as Khirro went to the giant lying motionless at the forest’s edge. He approached cautiously, but the giant stared skyward, its eyes glassy and sightless; it didn’t move when he prodded its ribs with his toe. Satisfied, Khirro grasped the Mourning Sword and removed it from the giant’s back. A gout of blood followed it, the powdery sand absorbing it like a starving animal. The blade glowed and pulsed as the blood clinging to its steel disappeared, sucked into the runes twisted along its length.
Now I pass the baton to seven others? Hmm…who likes to play? How about:
