I'm sure you all know the rules by now but, just in case:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS/WiP
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs, and post them as they're written.
- Tag 7 authors.
My current WiP has a huge spoiler on page 77 and, as I'm hoping a few of you might want to read it after the A to Z challenge, I decided to go with the other one that I keep going back to revise bits of. The working title is The Bad Mother, but that's only because I have absolutely no idea what to call it.
Beth took both of Amalia's hands in her own.
“Listen to me, maybe it's time to let go. Get on with your own life. Yes, it's sad that some women don't get to have babies but maybe we have to look at the bigger picture. Society works pretty well the way things are.”
Amalia was aghast.
“Beth, I can't believe you're saying these things. You were as horrified as I am when you found out about all this. I thought Matthew was getting somewhere, however slowly.”
“He is, and that's what worries me. What if all this comes crashing down on his head. Is it worth it?”
“Yes.” said Amalia firmly.
So, there you have it. As clear as mud :-)
I love reading snippets of people's work, but I know lots of you have done this aleady, so if you'd like to take part, consider yourself tagged!
