Lucky 7 Meme

I was tagged to take part in the Lucky 7 Meme by Cameron Lawton via Twitter.

Here are the ‘rules’

1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
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 authors
5. Let them know

Well I’m not convinced I always like to follow rules and because my work in progress only exists in Scrivener or a Kindled version I have chosen to go to location 77 (which is quite near the beginning), line 7 on the page and then the first 7 sentences after this.

So here goes a snippet of ‘Training Time’ that I’m also blogging about in the A-Z Challenge.

‘Additionally he is supported by Professor Rachel Harris, who will help you to become familiar with weapons from different stages of history, should you ever find yourself in the distant past.’
    Professor Harris stood now, looking every bit the opposite way to what you would think a history of weapons expert would look. Extremely long legs, blonde hair, loose and down to her waist. Jane felt the reactions of the male trainees around her, who suddenly looked, probably the most eager they’d ever looked to have a history lesson.
    Next was a small squat man, Sergeant Graham Brand, Communications. Professors Hamish Jeffreys and Kathryn Welsh were history of cultures tutors. Jane knew that despite their different  surnames that they were a married couple.

 

Now comes the tricky bit of tagging people – I’m going to wimp out and say the first seven writers that read this post that want to take part. Please leave a link to your posts below (Please note Cameron that I didn’t mind being tagged at all – thanks for pushing me to share more).

    Great to read your extract Kirsty and glad you didn’t mind. I always think any opportunity to get one’s name / work in the public eye is a good thing. And thank you for buying my novel – I’ll really look forward to your review / comments. 🙂

Please share your thoughts with me!
