Thank you, Natasha Hoar, for tagging me in this fun blog game, so I could share this with my writer friends on Twitter.
Here are the rules:
- Go to page 77 of your current MS
- Go to line 7
- Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.
- Tag 7 other authors
My current WiP hasn’t reached 77 pages, yet. Fortunately, I have two. This is from a YA Urban Fantasy I wrote during NaNoWriMo that is still untitled. I haven’t gone back to edit it yet. I can see it may be time.

The light catches a yellow flash of eyes and I hold my breath, focusing the light on the woods behind us. Not twenty feet away, flanking the side of the road, a large humanoid creature paces with Aidan’s car.
Now, I’m tagging:
