It's 1:40AM and my eyes are getting bleary. My mind is fuzzy and I swear, right now, it's full of fluff. So please forgive any errors.

This is a writing meme of sorts. I was tagged by my good friend (who also happens to be an awesome writer, so please check out her blog: ).

Da Rules:
  • Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
  • Go to line 7
  • Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
  • Tag 7 other authors to do the same
 I really like the idea behind this because it's basically like picking a random piece of a novel you're working on rather than giving you the full choice of which lines you want to choose. Originally, I was going to post a snippet from The Occultus (the novel I'm currently sending queries out for), but I thought it would be a good idea to post something a little different - a small snippet from another piece of work.

So here it is, 7 lines from page 77 of Soul of Fire (one of the stories I'm trying to finish). This is a snippet from the first draft:

Tobias swallowed and tried to understand the solemn look that had fallen onto the professor’s face, a slightly nervous edge to his eyes.
            “Now, I need you to hear me out. This is going to be a lot to take in and more than a little hard to believe but promise me you’ll let me get to the end before you make a run for it?”
            Now Tobias was getting worried. What could possibly be any more mental than dragons and their crystallised tears? “I’ll try.”

Now... for the tagging:
A double tag for Gen as I know she was already tagged by Miss Schelz :P
Another to Bambers
And because it's late (now 2:07AM, and my brain is officially fried) and I don't actually know many other blog writers personally, I'm gonna just tag everyone else who reads this. So, if you're reading this, consider yourself tagged. And also, if you do this, please post a comment with a link to your post - I would love to check it (and your blog) out.

I would end with some epic and inspiring good bye, but the more truthful one would be 'beeeed... zzzzz'. Good night bloggers and blog readers!


  1. :D

    Soul of Fire? I really want to dive into a Young Adult Fantasy right now. I just want to lose myself in another world and this sounds like the perfect set-up.

    'What could possibly be any more mental than dragons and their crystallised tears?' This last line made me want to devour the book
    in it's entirety and it's not even finished yet. *gentlelovingnudge*

    1. I really do need to stop playing about and allowing myself to get distracted, that way I might actually finish it. I honestly don't know what's taking me so long... damn procrastinating.

      *hugs* So glad that line makes you want to read it. I've completely forgotten so much of what I've written on it :S But hopefully this rewrite will rejog my memory so I can finish it ^_^
