Lucky 7 Meme

A.K. Fotinos-Hoyer tagged me to participate in the Lucky 7 Meme. Fun!! 

Here's how it works:

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. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

My 7 lines from page 77 of THE AWAKENING OF MINNA GRAY:

         “No one’s home,” she said, tossing her bag on the floor as they stepped inside on Friday afternoon. Everything was white. White marble floors, white columns, white leather furniture, beneath creamy white satin curtains. Here and there a red accent was placed – a flourish of scarlet roses, a red velvet pillow, a vermillion painting on the wall.              
          “No one is ever home,” she sighed.  They walked around to the second living room, and Cassandra stepped lightly up the stairs to the kitchen
          “Want anything to drink?” she asked, opening the fridge door. “I am going to have a Starfire. We have everything your little heart could desire. Mother doesn’t eat, she drinks.”

Kinda funny that these are the lines that came up, because I know this character is getting axed in my next round of edits. So you, dear blog reader, may be the only one to ever see them!

Tag, You're It!
These are the authors I'm "tagging" to participate in the Lucky 7 Meme. Not sure if they'll be able to, but at any rate, check out their websites!


  1. The description of the room brought up an image similar to The Night Circus for me - only yours was all white (not black) with a touch of red. Glad we got to read these lines before they hit the chopping block :)

  2. Ooh, fun. I'll do this tomorrow. I just peeked at where that puts me in the novel, and I'm pretty excited to share.

  3. AK - interesting. I haven't read Night Circus yet. I am kind of bummed about having to cut Cassandra, but some things must be done. Maybe one day her white and red house will make an appearance in another book.

    Sage - Yay! I'll go take a look!

  4. Nothing written is ever wasted :) I always save my favorite snippets from the cutting room floor for possible future use too!
