I've been tagged: The Lucky 7 Meme




I've been tagged by Elizabeth Varadan (her website) with the Lucky 7 Meme. Honestly, I don't think I've ever been so lucky in my life.



Now I have to:

go to page 77 of my WIP, go to the 7th line, and write out the next 7 sentences. So here it is from my novel The Sendoff:
            Sarah was a born musician. She played the piano expertly at age five. She didn’t seem to want to do anything but play music. She took up several instruments while she was growing up. But it was the cello that she enjoyed the most. When her father bought her the first cello, she began playing it with tenderness and a depth of emotion that stunned him. Her talent was so deep that she and the cello complemented each other, the instrument fulfilling her creativity, and her creativity fulfilling the range of the instrument’s possibilities.


I now have to name 7 people to tag and let them know.

Tim Greaton
nick hight
erin summerill
jessica salyer
kerry freeman
Maeve Frazier
jenna quentin

Now we have seven more lucky people. I can't wait to read your WsIP.

This is a wonderful excerpt, Richard. I would definitely like to know more about Sarah. She sounds like a musical prodigy.

Nice excerpt. I agree with Tanya that it flows like music. I feel like the cello is going to be pivotal in her life. Certainly want to see where her life takes her.

BTW: Corrected your name on my previous post. I don't know why I keep trying to name you Hansen. :-) I promise I won't do that in my review.
