Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next seven lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know
This is definitely taken out of context, but hopefully it still makes a bit of sense.
After an hour of stares and near-approaches by one person or another, I finally get fed up. I grab a bow and quiver of arrows from the wall and leave the main building in favor of the training fields.
The bow is definitely not my strongest weapon. I’ve always envied the people who can shoot well – their stance, the fluid way they aim, the precision with which they hit the target. No matter how I practice, I never seem able to achieve that ability.
Determined that today will be different, I shoot several rounds in a row. But most of the arrows skirt the bulls-eye as if some hidden force is pushing them to either side of it. The rest hit the dirt.
Gathering the arrows, I try yet again.
The first arcs over the fence, the second skids across the ground, and the third somehow manages to break in half mid-flight.
This weapon hates me.
As I take my stance and aim the next arrow, Jarrett puts his hand on my arm. With a small movement, he realigns my elbow. “Shoot,” he whispers.
Well, I hope y’all enjoyed it!
And now, on to the tagging… *rubs hands together*
I’ve chosen the following people to share lines from their current MS:
1. Monica B.W.
3. Robin Weeks
4. Kristin Rae
5. Leslie Rose
7. Bethany C.
Some you may be unable to post lines right now (due to a whole host of factors), and I completely understand that. This is a no-pressure tag. *smiles* For those who are able to post, I look forward to reading!
Have fun, my friends!
