Lucky 7 Meme (or… 7 lines from Principessa!)

Lucky Meme

Lucky Meme

Ms. Laura Lee Anderson was kind enough to tag me in her Lucky 7 meme, so I am following the rules of the game with the 7th page of my in-progress work

here are the rules:

1) Go to page 7 or 77 from your current WIP (that’s “work in progress.”)

2) Go to line 7

3) Copy down the next 7 lines- sentences or paragraphs- and post them as they’re written. No cheating!

4) Tag 7 authors

5) Let them know

Casebook 7 is about a quarter done; here are 7 lines from the 7th page.

The secret compartments were a recent discovery – one I made with Brian Dawes a few months ago. My downstairs tenant had been as surprised as I to unearth the two columns – one on each side of my fireplace. What was even more surprising to him though was the scrapbook that revealed my relationship with Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler (now known as Irene Jones). His excitement in learning that my paternal grandfather was one of his heroes was tempered by his knowledge of Adler’s criminal background. Since then we had settled into an uneasy agreement that my grandmother was probably not a threat, and that my grandfather’s influence outweighed hers. But his awareness of my full backstory made me.. well… apprehensive.

This is casebook 7 in the series, I took the first three casebooks and have been sending them as the first manuscript to potential publishers since February.

Time to choose 7 authors (i picked 7 blogs I recently started following):

Scott J. Clemons

B.G. Mitchell

Heather Wright

Melanie Marttila

Amanda Leigh

Kellyn

Trudy Doyle

  1. Thank you for the comment, and for the Lucky 7 Meme.
    Love the Prydain chronicles, though I thought Gurgi and his “poor tender head” could get irritating, I loved the rest of the characters and Taran’s arc through the series.
    Unfortunately, I have a strict policy against blogging my WIP. I post character sketches, worldbuilding, and lessons learned from various writing adventures, but I won’t put IoS up, even a wee snippet. Thank you for considering my blog meme-worthy though, and I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  2. This is an intriguing snippet. You’ve built lots of interesting tension. (And thanks for following my blog.)
