Lucky 7 Game

The Rules:
  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS.
  2. Go to line 7.
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
  4. Tag 7 other victims …er, authors.
(Shamelessy borrowed from Victoria Scott's blog...)

From Daughter of the Goddess, a novella that is only 54 pages long. Sooooooo, I'm going to page 7 rather than 77. Just to set the scene, the priestesses pushed this girl Peaches into a bathing pool filled with oil, and she is now drowning:

She no longer wants to breathe, and the water is dark as she slips into the recesses of the pool. A light in the distance and she lifts her hand toward it, a farewell gesture.

I would have been useful. I would have tried.

The light creeps closer. A woman, smiling in the midst of the light, long hair floating in the water around her, reaches out a hand. Peaches lunges toward her, desperate to touch her.

As for my pick of victims:

  1. Wendy Swore
  2. Renee Miller
  3. S.M. Carrera
  4. Heather McCubbin
  5. Lani Woodland
  6. Melanie Marks
  7. Evan Joseph
