To post seven lines from an unpublished work of fiction. My seven lines are taken from The Dating Game, due out later this year. The Dating Game is contemporary fiction - or, if you will, chick-lit without fluff!! Although I like to read chick lit, I simply can't write it.
So the rules -
- Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction).
- 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–and have fun.
'Thank goodness the day was over. Now that Gill had made up her mind, she was determined to pay a visit to Happy Ever After’s offices in Park Circus. Fortunately, it turned out to be walking distance from the office, just. She set off at a brisk pace on the twenty minute walk.
Checking her reflection in the wing mirror of a handily positioned BMW, she satisfied herself she had nothing stuck between her teeth. Ok, she was ready. Looking left and right, to double-check no-one she knew was passing, Gill sped up the stairs of the Georgian townhouse, headquarters of Happy Ever After’s dating agency.'
My nominations for those I would like to display their 7 sentences for the world to see, go to:
