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."

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