Seven--the Magical Number

Okay, I've been dying to do this one. I think this is one of the funnest memes going around. Sarah Pearson over at Empty White Pages sent this my way.

I'm sure you all know the rules by now but just in case:
  1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WiP
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs, and post them as they're written.
  4. Tag 7 authors.

This is from my current WIP that was my Nano project and is the reason for my frenzy as March fades.

Siena sat for a moment, considering, before her eyes widened. “Does that mean I can do magic?”
Her great grandmother shrugged.
Light headed with the possibilities and angry at the lack of information, Siena reached up and grabbed Helene’s wrist. “What does that shrug mean?”
Helene pulled her hand loose, her eyes flashing. “It means I don’t know.  You’re my direct descendent, but you’ve also got a lot of nonmagical blood.”
With a frown, Siena let out a deep breath, her anger leaving as quickly as it had come. 

Anyone who'd like to share a part of your WIP,
consider yourself tagged!


  1. Ooooo... Donna, this book has such a cool premise!!!

    I love this 7 meme thing. Great little excerpt... it totally brings you in and has great tension, even for such a short blurb! Nice.


  2. Fun excerpt. I really hope Siena can do magic. I want to keep reading to find out if she can!

  3. I'm so glad you decided to do it. I love the sound of this :-)

  4. I got tagged with this meme too, recently, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it will take me :)

    This sounds interesting, but what a teaser for poor Siena! Can she do magic? Can't she?

  5. oooh, cool! I love it! Very exciting. What a fun story!

  6. Ooo. Those lines are cool. Makes me want to read the first 77 pages to see how she knows about the magic and then after page 77 to find out, if she can and what that means for her!

  7. Ooo, I like it! :) Great excerpt, Donna!

  8. She's annoyed!
    I've already been tagged but won't have time to do it before the Challenge begins.

  9. Having 2 blogfest coming up won't be able to participate. also my usual music provider is playing up.

    Have a peaceful Sunday.
