The Lucky 7 Meme

July 6, 2012

I have been tagged. And here I was thinking my hiding spot was the best. I am actually talking about the Lucky 7 Meme.

 Virginia at Poeta Officium tagged me to participate. The idea is to put a snippet of your work in progress out for the public to view.

Here are the rules:

1. Go to the 7th or 77th page of your WIP

2. Go to the 7th line of the page

3. Copy the next 7 sentences or paragraphs. Remember, they must be as they are typed.

4. Tag 7 authors.

5. Let them know they’re it!

Here’s the snippet:

There was the shout of men working to unload a dirigible at the southern berths, the clang of tools against metal closer by and the low thrum of an idling engine punctuated by wet pops of steam escaping a valve. The cab rolled to a stop near the low wood building that served as the hub for everything associated with the island. The freight master shared space with the labor organizer, a booker of passages, the telegraph operator and the perhaps misnamed harbormaster. Ignatius strode inside the plank structure and went to the passenger ticket desk.

And here are the authors I’m tagging:

Soma

Belle

Krista

Coco

Subhan

Maggie

Susie

I look forward to seeing all the various snippets! A great exercise, for those who are shy about putting their work into the public view: Take heart. It is only a small slice from a relatively random location in your book. There’s nothing to worry about, you can do it!

Thanks everyone!

  1. lol this is fun Thanks Steven now all i have to do is visit 7/77/7/7

  2. Nice! I could feel the sea air after hearing all of the sounds of the harbor. Thanks for the tag!

    • No problem. The snippet is way out of context, it is actually an airfield on an island in the middle of the Susquehanna River. There aren’t many clues in those seven lines though.

  3. Thanks for tagging me! Lovely snippet you’ve got there :)
