Of course with any tagging game, there are rules…
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.
4. Tag 7 writers and let them know.
Okay, so as a treat, i thought i'd share snippets from Taming the Wolf and Coveted! Please bare with me because these excerpts are coming straight from my rough draft, sans editing.
TAMING THE WOLF - Page 77, line 7 Heading down the hallway, we stepped into a large office. Elle began to scratch at the area rug, it falling back to reveal the hardwood floor. A small notch was cut out of one board. Elle stood over it and began to paw at the floor. I watched her determination with appreciation. When her claw hooked the indentation , she pulled back slowly and the board lifted to reveal an empty slot. Bending down, I clutched the leather bound book in my teeth. (I should mention that at this point, they are in wolf form lol)
Okay, since i don't have 77 pages written on Coveted yet ,i'll post from page 7 instead.I spent my time ringing sales when I had customers. For most of the day I rearranged the shelves, vacuumed, dusted and almost died from boredom. My thoughts often ran towards Dorian. Why was the Angel of Death hanging out in Flora in a tiny apartment? Surely he had better thing to do than try to get into my pants. I thought about how he’d acted around me since moving in and it confused the hell out of me. Was it possible he had feelings for me? In a place other than his penis? Okay, so that is it, my 7 lines! What did you guys think?
