The rules are simple. Go to any manuscript of your own. Pick a '7' page (7, 97, 147... you get the gist) and post a snippet from that page on your blog - or here if you don't have a blog. It can be a sentence, a paragraph... the whole page if you want. When you get done, come back here and let me know so I can link up to your snippet and visit to see what you've written.
Today's snippet again comes from Unequal. Here we're farther along in the story. Rue's secret has been discovered and she's about to escape from the hospital with her only ally when she realizes there's one patient she can't leave behind...
“We can’t leave later. Now come on.”
“I have something I have to do first.”
“You can’t help your patients now. Trust me, they’ll be better off if you aren’t caught with any of them. And if the DOE talks to any of them, you’ll be surprised how fast they turn you in.”
Rue shook her head. “Not the one I’m thinking of. He’s too small to tell anyone anything, and he’s too damn small to leave here unprotected.”
Hubert’s mouth opened to argue, but something in Rue’s face must’ve told her it was no use. “Fine, but you do realize he won’t have to talk to turn us in. All he has to do is cry.”
Hope you enjoyed. Anyone else playing along will be added below as the links come in.
And just a disclaimer. The above manuscript is in first draft form, so I know it's not perfect. This is about sharing your work, not offering critiques. ;o)
