Lucky 7 Meme -- Spider Silk

Ok, so it’s been a while since Bailey Hammond (Over Yonder…) tagged me in this meme, but I’m finally joining the party!

The rules are pretty simple, and I will be blatantly ignoring some of them.

1. Go to page 77 of your WIP.
2. Count down to the 7th line.
3. Copy the next 7 lines and paste them into your post.
4. Tag 7 others to participate.
5. Let those writers know they've been tagged.  It seems like everyone I know has already been tagged. XD So, if you haven’t gotten in on the fun yet, feel free! Tell ‘em Silent sent ya’.

And now, without further ado, approximately seven lines from page seventy-seven in my current WIP: Spider Silk. Please note that it kind of crosses a scene change. XD

            “And Danny was left sitting in a puddle, eighty-five percent sure that he would be missing his date on Friday.

            If he ever saw David Archer again, Danny was quite simply going to kill him.


            Bear was laughing. His grin stretched like a ‘Welcome Home’ banner. All was right in the world. Or… Almost all.

            The man was sitting on the stump-table, eyes bright as he absently reached behind him for another leg of poultry from one of the platters they’d brought in. He sat facing David, who’d long since been squeezed onto a chair between Foel and Anzy.”

I hope you found this little excerpt diverting, and I can’t wait to see what your selections are like! ;)

Keep writing! ^^


  1. Lol, that's a cool tag I hadn't heard of before. And digging the extract, especially the names. ^_^

    1. Thanks! ^^ And I am SO glad to hear you say you like the names. I can only assume you're referring to the made-up ones (Foel, Anzy) from my fantasy world, and considering not everyone's fond of made-up names... Glad to know they're not too out-there. XD

    2. Yeah, lol, I guess I should have clarified that... Made-up names can be hit or miss, but yours were nice and simple. It's name like Ashynnagylaffakylle Blackfrostheart that I have a problem with. Even changed spellings like Peeta grate a little.

      But your names were perfect, simple but unique. :)
