The rules:
1. Go to page 77 (or 7th) 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.

From the current chapter of an untitled novel:

"Injuries have happened there," I said.

She raised her hand with part of a finger missing. "Wear gloves and don't take them off. And don't be stupid like Queen Rust. The corals hunt, and they have a pretty good range. I wrote a full report about our visit. You can read it."

A long report, probably, and in Classical English. I didn't reply.

After a moment, Karola said, "I'll read it and send you a summary."

"Oh," Honey added, sitting straight up with enthusiasm, "and you want Arthur to be on your team. He's great there, and he'll keep you safe."

Hey, that works, Sue. Good snippet. I didn't put mine up because to play honestly it was so out of context as to be dullsville.

Thanks. But I kind of like out of context, mysterious snippets.

I posted my seven lines on my blog at http://raosyth.com/blog/?p=800

This is my twelfth attempt to get this post past LiveJournal's armed guards. It would not let me post from any of my accounts. I had to change my password, go through three different captchas, and copy/paste a block of text into a text box.

This is probably why you did not get a lot of comments to this interesting meme.

Hope all is going well in Madrid!

Sorry it was hard to get in. I had the same trouble with Wordpress, so I finally just made Wordpress account.

As for Madrid, the school year ends next week, and then I go for a long weekend in San Sebastián. Yay!

Also, I just checked my settings, and no one should be getting a captcha here, not even anonymous posters. I'm sorry that happened.
