My fellow author friend Michele Shriver tagged me with this and when I looked at it, it looked like fun, so I thought I’d do it. Michele writes women’s lit, and despite that not at all being my genre, I love her book.
Anyway, what I have to do is:
Go to p. 77 of current WIP
go to line 7
copy down next 7 lines/sentences & post them as they’re written
Tag 7 other authors
Let them know
Now my WIP is completely unedited past the first four chapters… so in all its drafty glory. This falls in the middle of the MC saying goodbye to a young monk she’s friends with just after she’s become a nun and is going to be sent to protest her people’s treatment to the emperor.
I still didn’t know what to say; I had told the Eternal One I was poor at public speaking. He hadn’t meant this, but if he was going to help me with the emperor, I needed him now too. And suddenly looking into Goba’s eyes, I saw reflected there the same fire that had burned the prayer flags and on Windrunner’s back. “Thank you for being such a good friend to me. May the eternal one bless you and lead you in everything you do.”
Goba reached out and pulled my head to his, so our foreheads touched. His warm breath tingled against my cheeks, and somehow it was far more intimate an action between us than any of Jaemian’s kisses.
Now, seven other terrific authors I know, mostly from my critique groups! But all seven of these writers have either a great blog to read or a fun novel out. Check them out if it suits you.
